01-26-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

It was yet another 4 of 5 in the Pick 5 on Saturday and then racing was cancelled on Sunday! We continue to be right there every day for the last 2 weeks but seem to always run second and get done in by poor favorites each time. In the Pick 4 it was bomb central but in race 8 if you followed my daily strategy of using our 3 picks plus the highest priced horse in the superfecta box you collected a cool $355 win for the $2.40 bet!

The Pick 4 today has a $6,250 race in the 2nd leg. Yes you did read that right its a $6k claimer at Santa Anita, the 1st time ever?- oh boy! We have a number of potential singles sprinkled in the card today!

Supertouch is the odds on favorite in race 5 to start the Pick 4 in a race scheduled Sunday – I had as a single Sunday so will again today. He has wet track in his blood, take the cheap price and single in the sequence.

Horses listed in brackets are for added coverage if wanted and for exotics.

 

For races where I only have one or two selections I usually like to KEY the top choice  with the second choice and an outside for trifectas.

 

When I have three horses selected in a Pick 4 or Pick 5 consider them for Trifecta boxes and for superfecta boxes use the 3 selections with the highest priced horse with good form or top tier jockeys riding, especially if they give a price. Rolling Pick 3 and doubles using selections.
