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 10-race cards on both Friday and Saturday this week, with first post set for 6:10 p.m. Pacific.

Royal Mistress is the 9-5 favourite on oddsmaker Marty Bridges’ morning line.

A six-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 10 starts on the season, with the most recent coming in a February 7 Fillies and Mares Open, where she sat the pocket for Kennedy and ignited when it counted to win by a neck.

Sing Along is listed as the 7-2 second choice. Edwin Quevedo owns and trains and 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 per cent 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 per cent 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 — $93 for each winning ticket — using the regular rate.
