02-16-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

Back to business and it looks like we didn’t miss much last weekend with small pays on the Pick 4 despite large prices. On Sunday the Pick 4 saw a 30-1 horse win the last leg and the payoff was still only $300! The rest of the payoffs were $30-50 max for the 50c Pick 4. Thursday will be sunny but rain is forecast over the next several days so I will be looking to keep those tickets on the low end.







Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 5: XX

Race 6: Pica, off since June horse is 3-3 from 7 starts at distance, trainer 2 of 4 in recent days, won last start with this jockey before hitting the bench

Race 8: XX


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $24 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.
