The traditional Pick Six requires players to pick winners in the final six races on each day's card and will pay out 70 percent of the net pool whenever there are winning tickets. If no player hits six of six races, 70 percent of the net pool is carried over to the next racing day. Thirty percent of the pool is then paid out to consolation tickets with five winners.

Offered for the first time, the Santa Anita Turf Pick 3 is a $3 minimum wager that will be comprised of the final three turf races on each day's program, conditions permitting.

The 19-day Autumn Meet will no doubt be highlighted by the 40th running of the two-day Breeders' Cup World Championships on Nov. 3 & 4 and will be hosted by Santa Anita for a record 11th time.

With the Breeders' Cup looming on closing weekend, the Autumn Meet will get off to a fast start with nine stakes scheduled for the first three days of racing--beginning with the Grade III, $100,000 Chillingworth Stakes, for fillies and mares at 6 1/2 furlongs on opening day.

Four stakes, headed by the Grade I, $300,000 Awesome Again, for three-year-olds and up at a mile and eighth, will headline a tremendous card on Sept. 30, with all of them serving as potential stepping-stones to Breeders' Cup glory for horses in their respective divisions.

In addition to the Awesome Again, the Grade II, $200,000 Santa Anita Sprint Championship presented by Estrella Jalisco at six furlongs, a Breeders' Cup "Dirt Dozen" race, the Grade II, $200,000 Eddie D, at about 6 1/2 furlongs down the hillside turf course and the Grade II, $200,000 City of Hope Mile, will also share center stage.

On Sunday, Oct. 1, another Breeders' Cup "Dirt Dozen" event, the Grade II, $200,000 Zenyatta Stakes for fillies and mares at a mile and one sixteenth, the Grade II, $200,000 John Henry Turf Championship at a mile and one quarter on turf, the Grade III, $100,000 Tokyo City Cup at a mile and one half and the $100,000 Unzip Me Stakes, for three-year-old fillies at about 6 1/2 furlongs down the hillside turf, will highlight another outstanding opening weekend program.

Santa Anita will continue to offer a low 14 percent takeout 50 cent Early Pick 5, as well as the 50 cent Late Pick 5, $1 exactas, $2 rolling Daily Doubles, 50 cent rolling Pick 3's, an early 50 cent Pick 4, as well as 10 cent Superfectas on all races with a minimum of six runners.

In addition to wagering on-track, fans have a variety of betting options, including, which can be downloaded free of charge at the App Store. In addition to Santa Anita's simulcast signal, all of the track's races will be shown live on FanDuel TV.
