ARCADIA, Calif. (March 23, 2018) – No one picked all five winners in Santa Anita’s popular Early Pick 5 wager on Friday, creating a massive carryover into Saturday of $251,993. With the Grade II, $200,000 Santa Monica Stakes anchoring Saturday’s “Early 5,” track officials project Saturday’s total Early Pick 5 pool will exceed $2 million.
Carded as race five, Saturday’s seven furlong Santa Monica attracted a field of five, included even money favorite Paradise Woods, a multiple Grade I winner, and hard-hitting distaffers Skye Diamonds and Selcourt, who have each been assigned a morning line of 5-2.
With first post time at 12 noon, entries and complete morning line information for Saturday’s 10-race card at Santa Anita are available at santaanita.com.
