03-05-2021 Santa Anita Full Card

We ended last weekend on a high note hitting the Late Pick 4 for $583. Not bad for $48. Today’s card is another one of those tough wide open but low pays likely type cards.

LA Times Value Play:

Race 3: Law Professor is 6-1 morning line and attracts Joel Rosario for trainer Michael McCarthy. Mike is 23% 2nd career race like today and 50% in the money from 62 such starts for a profit. A 59 second workout last week for a horse racing protected is a big positive. In fact the last few works have been great including the one prior to the debut. I hope we get 6-1 or more! Also use There Goes Harvard the “other” McCarthy horse with Umberto Rispoli riding ( he is 33% for the trainer). Also the 2nd career race for this horse and a 59 second work as well. 12-1 is juicy. In Pick 5 bets I am using both these horses as well as Fenway and Harbored Memories.

Value Plays for Today:.

Race 7: Lovely Finish is always around at the finish line and makes the 2nd start off a 9 month break . Winning last out under the lights there is a sharp workout again in preparation for today’s race. This distance is no issue with ‘Lovely having an 0-2-1 from 3 starts record. 12-1 is a great value for this card today.

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.”
