Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., has announced it will offer a $1-million guaranteed Jackpot in this Saturday and Sunday's 20 cent Rainbow Pick Six. With 10-race cards scheduled for both days, special early first post time this weekend is at 12 noon.
With a nine-race card on tap Friday, Santa Anita will guarantee a $500,000 Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot, with first post time tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.
Friday's 20 cent Rainbow Pick Six will be comprised of races four through nine. With 58 horses eligible to run, average field size for the Rainbow Pick Six is at just under 10 runners per race. Approximate post time for Friday's fourth race is at 2 p.m. PT.
Saturday's main event is the Grade I, $300,000 American Oaks, which has been carded as race eight. The Oaks, for 3-year-old fillies at a mile and one quarter on turf, attracted a field of nine, with trainer Neil Drysdale's Californiagoldrush, to be ridden by Flavien Prat, the 5-2 morning line favorite.
