05-14-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

Happy Mother’s Day! This is a tough couple of sequences today that with these short fields could chalk out so I am keeping the tickets tight but I really like our longshot’s today and if we can get out of the races we singled in we could be looking a nice Mother’s Day win!


Get the Rest of The Santa Anita Spring Season for only $99




Possible singles today:

In race 1 Kenjistorm on paper should dominate this race, 2nd the last 2 races Prat hops back on, bobbled last out at the start he should wire this field and gives us a single in the Pick 5.


In race 7 Selcourt is a single for me in the Pick 4 sequence, she won her debut they led almost all the way last out before getting caught by G1 winner Union Strike


In race 8 Hay Dude comes off the bench for Miller with Prat riding and is racing safe, unable to be claimed and when we see that these days in racing it means they are placing for the easy paycheck



Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 4: XX

Race 5: XXX

Race 6: That Dudes a Lady, big price for this shipper from Turf Paradise who won last out gate to wire but trainer has good stats, we get a 12 pound weight break which could be the difference maker at this distance today, they will again try the wire tactic

Race 8: XXX


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $18 with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $27 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.
