01-14-2018 Santa Anita Full Card


Those were some giant payoffs yesterday in both sequences and while we didn’t hit on them, keeping our tickets on the low end and not chasing proved the prudent choice. The 1st race in the Pick 4 today has been won by horses under 5-1 a whopping 90% and by the favorite 45%. The top 5 choices meet that criteria. Single the favorite here or use all five? While the card looks difficult today I like it a lot.


New for the Santa Anita meet I am also offering a monthly subscription for 75% off. That’s right for $32 a month you get everything. That’s the cost of 4 race days and you get the other 12 days of racing free a month!




Today’s Full Card is only $8.






Single Candidates:


Longshots of the Day:

Race 4: Gentrified, jockey Roman had many choices in this race having ridden most of these horses in the past but hopes on Cerin horse and he is 25% for Cerin who is also 28% 2nd off the claim. A negative however is no listed works since the Dec 17th race. Then again Roman rode the 2nd fav and chose this horse

Race 5: Starship Chewy, Roman again and his weight break plus a major upgrade for this horse. We get 12-1 for a horse with almost the same speed, backspeed, class and closing pace as the 9/5 fav!

Race 9: Scandal, this is exactly the kind of horse, price and race Smith wins!  He is 38% for Mandella and this is kind of when Madella wins too! Prior to winning the last race was 2nd twice and 3rd getting beat on the line coming too late. Sound familiar. Those times he was favored. Today 15-1 or more! Win time.


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $45 with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $24 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.
