Pick 5, Pick 6 carryovers, guaranteed pools spice Friday action

Carryovers in both the early Pick 5 and the Pick 6, with guaranteed pools for both, spice up the action Friday night at Cal Expo.

The early Pick 5 comprises the first five races on the night and features a $13,424 carryover from last Sunday evening with a $50,000-guaranteed gross pool.The early Pick 5 is a 20-cent wager along with the late Pick 5 and the Pick 4 comes with a reduced 16 percent takeout rate.

Meanwhile, the Pick 6 is also a 20-cent wager that will be conducted on races 3 through 8 and has a $3,865 carryover and a $10,000 guaranteed pool.

The two carryovers are due in large part to upsets by Sneek Peek Hanover in Sunday’s second race and Ynotthishos in the evening’s eight and final leg of the Pick 6.

Sneek Peek Hanover was dispatched at 40-1 in a conditioned pace while making only his second start of the year for owner Ronald Rettig, trainer Lino Pacheco and pilot Jessie Pacheco.

Leaving from the cozy rail slot, he was able to work out a tracking trip behind the favorites and surged when it counted to hang a neck decision on an unlucky Kioti in that contest.

Ynotthishos, off at 7-1 in the Open II Pace, was unhurried early and then came flying home in :27 1/5 to register the upset and land owner/trainer Jose Castillo in the charmed enclosure.
