Pick Six Carryover At GGF Grows To $106,725


    The Pick Six eluded handicappers at Golden Gate Fields once again Sunday, meaning there will be an enticing carryover of $106,725 up for grabs when racing resumes Thursday.

     Golden Gate Fields will present an eight-race card Thursday and post time is
12:45 p.m.  The Pick Six, a $2 wager that challenges fans to select the winners of six consecutive races, will be held on races three through eight.  Post time for the third race is 1:45 p.m.

     Sunday’s Pick Six was held on races four through nine and the bet wasn’t hit even though there were three winning favorites in the Pick Six sequence.  The prompt favorites were Atta Boy Pete ($6.00) in the sixth race, English Royal ($6.00) in the eighth, and La Colina ($4.80) in the ninth.

    The biggest upset in Sunday’s Pick Six occurred in the first leg of the sequence when Famous Boots ($30.40) posted a front-running victory in the fourth race under jockey Inoel Beato.  The winners of the other Pick Six races were El Fabio ($8.40), who took the fifth race, and Rathsallagh Bride ($14.20), who captured the seventh.  

     There were 36 tickets that had five of the six winners and each was good for a consolation payoff of $579.
