Santa Anita Park and Gulfstream Park will celebrate the HBO series "Luck" with a special guaranteed Pick Six wager on Jan. 28, Sunshine Millions Day.
The $1 minimum bet will have a guaranteed pool of $250,000 and will feature three races from Santa Anita and three from Gulfstream Park. HBO’s "Luck," the highly anticipated racetrack-themed series based at Santa Anita and starring Dustin Hoffman, will premier the following night, Jan. 29.
First post time on Millions Day is noon. The "Luck Pick Six" will begin at approximately 1:10 p.m. PST with Gulfstream’s eighth race. It will conclude with Santa Anita’s sixth race, which will be run at approximately 2:37 p.m. PST. All six races will be stakes events.
In addition to a $1 minimum wager, the "Luck Pick Six" will also offer a mandatory payout, with no carryover provision. In the event of a Santa Anita Pick Six carryover Jan. 27, all Pick Six monies would be carried over to Jan. 29.
The "Luck Pick Six" will be televised on HRTV and at www.facebook.com/LUCKHBO. Entries will be taken Jan. 22 at both Santa Anita and Gulfstream. Past performances will be available throughout the week in Daily Racing Form and at www.dailyracingform.com.
