For the 20th consecutive racing day, Santa Anita's popular 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot remained elusive on Friday, resulting in a Jackpot carryover of $673,893 into Saturday.
With $160,443 in “new” money wagered, Friday's Jackpot pool reached $797,606 and although there was one “live” Single Ticket Jackpot ticket, represented by number five, Forbidden Command, in today's eighth and final race, she never threatened and finished last.
As a result, there were 10 consolation tickets with six winners, each worth $8,579.
Saturday's Rainbow Six will begin with race five, the Grade III, $100,000 Daytona Stakes, which has an approximate post time of 3:03 p.m. PT. The Daytona, for 3-year-olds and up at five furlongs on turf, is headed by California-bred Eddie Haskell, who is the 9-5 morning line favorite.
The Grade II, $200,000 Triple Bend Stakes, for 3-year-olds and up at seven furlongs, has been carded as Saturday's eighth race. Bob Baffert's American Anthem is the narrow 5-2 morning line choice.
First post time on Saturday is at 1 p.m., with admission gates open at 11 a.m. For additional information, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.
