DEL MAR, Calif. -- There is a two-day pick six carryover of $632,816 for Friday's program at Del Mar after favorites failed to win any of the pick six races on Thursday for the second consecutive day.
The carryover was clinched when Gabby Lane ($71.40) pulled an upset in Thursday's eighth race.
Friday's pick six covers the third through eighth races on a program that begins at 4 p.m. Pacific, and the bet comprises three maiden claimers, a $125,000 stakes, a starter allowance and an optional claimer.
The first leg of the pick six, the third race, is a starter allowance over a mile for fillies and mares. Forest Miss, who drew the outside, is the morning-line favorite.
The fourth race is a maiden claimer for 2-year-olds. Bond, the mount of Joe Talamo, is the 3-1 morning-line favorite in a race that has an open feel.
The fifth race is an optional claimer for fillies and mares over a mile. Debie Ginbsurg tries for her third career win, but must beat Nookta Island, Quiet Kim and Fun Logic.
There are nine starters in the sixth race, a maiden claimer over a mile. Dart River and Lonely Highway, who are drawn to the outside, will be well-backed.
The $125,000 California Dreamin' Handicap for statebreds over 1 1/16 miles on turf is led by Epic Power. He must beat the Northern California shipper Bold Chieftain and Lucky J.H., who returns from a lengthy layoff.
The last race is a maiden claimer over 5 1/2 furlongs. The field of 12 will not include Prosalate and Margeds Degree, who were scratched on Thursday. The remaining field is led by Set for Combat, who is the mount of Alex Solis, and Justcruise.
