04-06-2019 Santa Anita Full Card

We have eleven races today including a mandatory payout in the Pick 6 that is expected to push the total to $3m. Lots of standout singles on today’s card making it a rolling doubles day for us using a new betting angle. I also have my selections for the Pick 6 for you to create your winning tickets!

Pick 4 I need a single is in race  – none today as Baffert holds the aces in the big races but I prefer Roadster in race 8 and Gift Box in race 10. Roadster needs a point to get into Churchill whereas Game Winner is already in.

Pick 5 I need a single is race 3 Bellafina who offers no value but is a free spot on the Pick 5 ticket. ⅖ morning line and likely will go ⅕ has won 5 of 7, comes in with sharp works and has the top speed. Gate to wire.

For the following doubles paick a starting bet and we roll the gains. If unsuccessful in a leg we start the next leg with the initial bet

Race 1 Double 1,3,2 with 6

Win here half win cash on

Race 2 Double 6 with 5

Win here half cash on

Race 3 Double 5 with ALL

Win here half cash on

Race 4 Double ALL with 1

Longshots of the Day:

Race 4: Italiano, was claimed last out by cagey Myadi and races protected today, a sign of optimism and we also get bug boy Diaz’s weight break.  Trainer is 23% turf to dirt, 23% 1st off the claim and the perfect price for an upset in a wide open race. There is a lot of early speed in this race for a closer like this

Race 7: Bullion, tries turf for his 2nd start but has turf and winners up and down the bloodlines. Top last race speed, giant price for us to win bullions in the Pick 6!

Race 9: Hostess, 1st time Euro comes here off a win going 7fl. She raced on turf in her debut and from the form can track the pace and pounce in the stretch. Training well for US debut, gets 1st time Lasix, Callaghan is 23% on imports fantastic price for us

Today’s Race 8 Late Pick 4 will cost $36 depending on singles 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.

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.”
