04-28-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

Back to racing today after a cancelled card yesterday due to lack of entries. We have some small fields to work with today and that means we have to take a couple of stances to keep the ticket prices on the low side. The Pick 4 sequence is a tough one today and despite the chances of prices hitting the prudent bet is a small ticket again.

Possible singles today:

In race 7 Pressed by Paul returns after a week for O’Neill and while O’Neill has 2 wins and 3 seconds from 5 races doing quick turnaround this horse has run worse each time on the short layoff from 2 starts, beatable favorite for sure



Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 5: XX

Race 7: XX


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $9 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.
