01-16-2022 Santa Anita Full Card

I will be the guest on Tom Quigley’s Handicapping show on Sunday 1 hour before the 1st post. You can see the show live on your betting site or at the Santa Anita livestream page here. 

Value Play of the Day:

Race 2: Issa Court makes the 1st start on dirt today after winning last out at this distance. Win rider Hernandez choses to leave for Roses Crystal, a horse he has ridden the last 9 times so the move is understandable  but look who we get – Johnny V!  Moves up in class today with some good workouts we are getting 5-1. This is a race that from 11 tries horses over 5-1 have won 5 times so this is a value race despite being a short field. Johnny V daily double?

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.”
