After a two-day carry-over in Hollywood Park's Pick Six, there were two perfect tickets, worth $688,070 each Thursday. The payoff was the fourth-largest Pick Six in track history. Although there was no early word on who had the winning tickets, one was bought at Bay Meadows in San Mateo and the other at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J. For the first three races in the Pick Six, which covered the final six races on Thursday's card, it appeared there would be a carry-over approaching $1.

The California Horse Racing Board will meet Friday in Inglewood to consider a proposal to allow harness races at the Pomona Fairgrounds. A bill pending in the Legislature would permit harness racing at the fairgrounds 25 weeks a year.

Hollywood Park Inc. reported a loss of $1.2 million during the first three months 1998, or 5 cents per diluted share, compared to the $1.4 million, or 7 cents per share, loss for the same period last year.
