01-18-2021 Santa Anita Full Card

Monday Racing and we have a great 9 race card for today.

LA Times Value Play:

Race 3: Capital Heat won last out under Jessican Pyfer going 5 and a half furlongs as the favorite. In the race prior at the same distance Capital lost the irons at the start and the horse bolted to the front only to get caught late. In the race prior to that at a 6 half furlong distance Capital led until deep stretch before being caught to run second. Today we are getting tremendous value at 20-1 for a horse that has a big weight break, likes the lead and should relish this distance.

Value Plays for Today:.

Race 1: Commas Save Lives tries turf for the same time for trainer Jett Mullins who is winning 29% to start the meet from his small stable. We have a sharp work, 1st time Lasix and they remove the blinkers. Mullins wins 25% taking the blinkers off.  20-1 is a nice value to start the day. 

Race 5: Spring to Summer is the other Falcone back East trainers horse and Rosario rides (1 for 1). I’m using the Prat horse too but this could be the liver one.

Race 6: Bedrock  has won 2 in a row the last under this jockey. Moving up in class for a hot trainer 8-1 is nice value

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.”
