04-09-2023 Santa Anita Full Card

The last day of racing at Santa Anita until Friday April 21st. Race 10 seems the toughest race and I am tossing the favorite and looking for prices there.

Value Plays of the Day:

Race 7: Mas Rapido – if Conclude falters I believe it will be the Kent ridden horse (if he is riding today) or the outside horse Marks Hip. Both are good value at 12-1.

Race 8: Tapito Leo with Prat at 6-1 1st start since last July, gelded and sharp works.

Race 10: Warrens World at 15-1 attracts JJ – Enough said. Spread race for prices. Quagmire Magic drops, 2nd time Lasix. Goldenspa was ridden by JJ the last few times so there is ability here at a price too.

Race 11: Ko Samui – the “other” Phil horse and comes in with two 59 second workouts and this 20-1 price is too good to ignore.

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 outsider 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.”
