01-11-2018 Santa Anita Full Card

The Pick 4 today has two mid sequence Hillside course loaded with first-timers making it a tough handicap. Rain in in the forecast for the next two days so I am unlikely to do cards as the off tracks have been near impossible of late.

Pick 4 I need a single is race 8 Mo See Cal who should blow these horses away looking for the 4th win in a row, moving up in class a free spot in the Pick 4 and Pick 5

Pick 5 I need a single is race 5 Little Scotty dropping multiple classes for a trainer winning 21% on this, has the top speed. shortens up and loves this race track with a 2-1 from 3 race record

Longshots of the Day:

Race 4: Minute Mile 1st time Irish from Gallagher 1st start in a year and tries turf for the 1st time with turf in the bloodlines. I always bet these and the price is nice

Race 7: Boa Nova the other 1st time Irish horse (3 in this race) we get 12-1 for trainer Meah who is so overdue to hit a big one at this meet and 1st time Lasix. This horse raced at Royal Ascot and some big meets in the UK meaning big time class

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.”
