We started the day off great yesterday with a surging win by our 14-1 longshot in the 1st race. Our other longshot of the day in race 7 surged late but could not catch the frontrunner. Let’s take the win home today. Belmont Day and we have 10 races to go over.
Tomorrow I will be a featured guest on Quigley’s Corner at Santa Anita going over the full Sunday card. The TV show begins at 11:50 PST and can be seen on-site, Facebook or on the Xpressbet XBTV app!
Pick 4 I need a single is in race 8 – none today price shopping
Pick 5 I need a single is in race 2 Jack’s a Diva from Sadler with bug boy Velez and they are winning 30%. Moving up in class off the win last out, 1st start off the claim and 1st start in two months, go with the hot trainer who knows where to place them.
Longshots of the Day:
Race 1: Fool’s Paradise has speed, as much as the top choices, and we are getting 6-1 or more. Drops into a claimer race for the 1st time today this Grade 1 racer last year is priced nicely. Jockey Martin Garcia has been riding great of late and is hitting 29% on turf. The race set-up seems ideal for this horse. Look for him to track the front runner then swallow him up in the stretch for the win.
Race 6: Hergame is a 2nd time Euro starter who raced in a G3 two years ago. Bobbled at the start 1st off a year break last out at 4-1 but today we get 15-1. Rail is winning 25% of the races at this distance. Races protected today and looks very sneaky at a price.
Race 8: Ocean Fury 1st off the claim for red hot O’Neill and Bejarano who is winning 33% for him hops on. Trainer is 26% 1st off the claim. This horse is among the fastest in this race and speed has been winning but we also have a closer in Continental Divide who gets Ocean’s rider last race Kent. Won last out closing at this distance we have price horses for both race set-ups.
Race 10: Scrambled attracts Kent for the last race of the day and at 10-1 morning line if Kent rides late I look. 3rd start off the layoff had the best last race speed. Again this is a jockey riding he must know something angle at a great price.
Today’s Race 7 Late Pick 4 will cost $45 singling with horses listed in preference.
Today’s Race 1 Early Pick 5 will cost $48 with horses listed in preference
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.
Irish horse racing saying –
“Bíonn grásta Dé idir an dialait agus an talamh.”
“The grace of God is found between the saddle and the ground.”
