02-18-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

After a cancelled card Friday we head back to an all dirt card that will be wet fast! This is a tough card today but there are some very nice price horses for us as well




Possible singles today:

Momma’s Baby Boy in race 4 – Baffert races 3 horses in this race but this Hollendorfer may have them all- stretches out after a 3rd last out surging late, adds blinkers, Baze has been on fire and a sharp work into this one


Ptolemy in race 9:  Desormeaux rides for a Hess import from Florida and you pay attention when that happens, dropping with a bullet work 2 weeks ago




Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 3: XX

Race 5: XXX

Race 6: I’ll Wrap It Up, won for us last out off the bench, could regress today and adds ,more distance but he liked the wet fast track and gets that again today and gets the low weight too with bug boy Fuentes riding

Race 7: Motutapu, Theriot/Koriner/E-Racing did very well for us this summer, drops today and won 2 back, we get 6-1 in a race won by horses over 5-1 50% XXXXXXXXXX

Race 8: XXXXX


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $40.50 with horses listed in preference.

2,6,1 (3)





Today’s Pick 5 will cost $54 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.
