Sacramento, CA – Royal Mistress figures to get plenty of support in Friday night’s (March 27) feature at Cal Expo, a $5,400 conditioned event for pacing fillies and mares.
Watch and Wager LLC will present ten-race cards on both Friday and Saturday this week with first post set for 6:10 p.m.
Royal Mistress is the 9-5 favorite on Trackman Marty Bridges’ morning line.
A 6-year-old daughter of Jk Royal Flush, the bay miss is owned by Kevin Anderson, hails from the Gordie Graham barn and will have the services of James Kennedy while leaving from post six in a field of seven.
Royal Mistress has four wins from her ten starts on the season, with the most recent coming in a February 7 Distaff Open where she sat the pocket for Kennedy and ignited when it counted to be up by a neck.
Sing Along is listed as the 7-2 second choice and her best effort will certainly make her dangerous. Edwin Quevedo owns and trains, as Luke Plano pilots the Rock N Roll Hanover mare, who is coming off back-to-back sharp efforts.
Taking them on will be Lookslikewemadeit with Mooney Svendsen; Velocity Layla, Jacob Cutting; Hi Fidelity, Braxten Boyd; Getter Queen Flush, John Roberts; and Kiss On The Lips with Nick Roland at the controls.
Single-6 carryover, low takeout bets featured. There will be a $40,644 carryover in the 10-cent Single 6 wager on Friday night at Cal Expo. The sequence begins with the fifth race on the program.
A single (unique) winner in the wager receives 100 percent of the net pool plus the carryover. Otherwise, the pool is divided equally into the minor share and the carryover.
In addition, there is a reduced 16 percent takeout rate in both the 20-cent Pick-5 and 20-cent Pick-4.
The Pick-5 starts with the opening race, while the Pick-4 is decided over the final four races on Friday’s program.
The Pick-4 features a $40,000-guaranteed gross pool on Saturday and a $30,000 guarantee on Friday.
To give an example of the value added with the lower takeout, last Friday night’s Pick-4 returned $988 for each correct 20-cent investment. That would have been $895 using the regular rate, a difference of $93 for each winning ticket.
