I was somewhat shocked after reading Bill Christine's (Dec. 22) column regarding Santa Anita's dropping of the Pick Six. I happen to feel that this exotic is one of the very best bets available to racing fans.
And, it's not just the cancellation of the Pick Six that bothers me; it's also an insult to my intelligence when Santa Anita management attempts to justify it by pointing to those big, bad out-of-town syndicates. Give me a break, Mr. Goodrich (Santa Anita's general manager)! Until now I have considered Santa Anita to be a class act. Now, I'm not at all sure. I think I've been had.
