The new 20% on-track Pick Six bonus at Santa Anita Park rewarded three bettors Jan. 6. They will each bag $8,776.20 thanks to the track bonus rather than $7,313.20, which is what nine other winning tickets that were purchased off-track paid.
"This is an important initiative for our on-track fans," said George Haines, Santa Anita president and general manager, in a statement. "The Pick Six is the most popular, high profile wager offered in California and this 20% on-track bonus will go a long way towards enhancing that tradition."
In order to be eligible for the bonus, patrons must sign up as Thoroughbreds Club members and swipe their membership cards before making Pick Six wagers. Fans can become Thoroughbreds members free of charge, by visiting Santa Anita's Thoroughbreds Center on the main floor of the grandstand.
"We want to encourage everyone, if they haven't already done so, to be sure to join our Thoroughbreds Club in order to be eligible for the bonus," Haines said.
The Pick Six is a $2 minimum wager and consists of the last six races on each day's race program at Santa Anita.
The 20% bonus is applicable to Pick Six wagers placed on-track through any smart phone.
