05-07-2021 Santa Anita FUll Card

Short fields, a 2 year old race and an eight race card. Gulp!

LA Times Value Play:

Race 7: Posterize at 10-1 in a five horse field screams value to me. A winner last out at this distance and a record of 5-4-2 from 11 starts at Santa Anita trainer Daniel Azcarate jumps the horse to this allowance race. He is winning 39%, winner last race, and 65% in-the-money for a profit so when he makes this move it works. 

Value Plays for Today:.

Race 4: Achilleus moves up in class first off the claim and victory last time out for trainer Hector Palma. That last race was also on dirt at this distance. This trainer excels at this, winning 36%. Juan Hernandez gets the mount 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.”
