ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 26, 2012)—Chalk was in short supply at Santa Anita on Thursday, resulting in a Pick Six carryover into Friday of $55,584. It is expected Friday’s total Pick Six pool could exceed $350,000.

Friday’s Pick Six will cover races three through eight. Post time for race three is 2:02 p.m.

Providing he draws in from the also eligible list in the eighth race, the Peter Miller-conditioned Idontrollonshabbos is the shortest Pick Six price on Jon White’s morning line at 9-5. Second, beaten a head on Dec. 10 at Hollywood Park, Idontrollonshabbos is entered back at the same level on Friday and will again be ridden by Joe Talamo. A Kentucky-bred 3-year-old colt by Seattle Fitz, he’ll be making his third career start for Doubledown Stables, Inc.

Barring any late scratches, average field size in Friday’s Pick Six is 9.5 runners per race.

Cat in the Forest could be singled on a number of tickets, as he is the solid 2-1 morning line favorite in leg one, the third race. Claimed out of his last two starts (a win and a second) for $20,000, Cat in the Forest goes for the first time for trainer Bob Hess on Friday and will be ridden by Joel Rosario.

Trainer Mike Mitchell will send out the consistent 7-year-old gelding Muny in race seven. Owned by Belmonte, Cohen, Featherstone, and partner, Muny will be ridden by Joe Talamo and is the 2-1 morning line favorite.

Santa Anita will present a special $250,000 guaranteed LUCK Pick Six on Saturday, Sunshine Millions Day that carries a mandatory payout provision. Accordingly, if Friday’s Pick Six carries over, that pool would be carried to Sunday.

First post time on Friday is 1 p.m. For more racing information, including Friday’s complete eight-race morning line, visit
