01-08-2021 Santa Anita Full Card

We have a tough card today requiring a lot of spreading but if one can connect the pays should be very good.

LA Times Value Play:

Race 5: Crossword is 12-1 with Joel Roasrio riding for John Sadler and Hronis racing. Even on this jump in class I doubt we get this great morning line price. 1st time Lasix after winning last out when trying turf going shorter for the 1st time. This is a wide open spread as deep as you can race for Pick 5 bets.

Typos happen and I do my best not to make them. Always read through my writeups to make sure the posted numbers are correct. I list Pick 4, Pick 5 selections and also a listing of all plays for each race. If there are any differences, please let me know.

*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.”
