The $1-minimum wager has a guaranteed pool of $250,000 and features three races from Santa Anita and three from Gulfstream Park.

“The Stronach Group is very proud of the fact the Sunshine Millions, which was initiated in 2003, has become one of our most popular signature events here at Santa Anita,” said George Haines, Santa Anita President. “LUCK has the potential to expose thousands of new fans to our sport and to Santa Anita, and we believe this wager is going to help draw attention throughout the country.

“The LUCK Pick-6 will start at Gulfstream with their eighth race and from there we’ll be alternating with Gulfstream every other race. We’re looking forward to welcoming many of the actors associated with LUCK throughout the day in the winner’s circle and at other ancillary locations throughout the track. The LUCK Pick-6 is a great way to get people excited about Sunshine Millions Day and to introduce a new crowd to The Great Race Place,” Haines added.

In addition to a $1-minimum wager, the LUCK Pick-6 also offers a mandatory payout, with no carryover provision. In the event of a Santa Anita Pick-6 carryover on Friday, January 27, all Pick-6 monies carry over to Sunday, January 29.
