05-31-2019 Santa Anita Full Card

This is an extremely hard card to handicap today with potential for chaos and prices or a chalk out low pay day. I have two singles I really like and two races where anyone can win.

Pick 4 I need a single is in race 5 Kaydetre 2nd start off the layoff and that produced a win last time. Top speed, top last race pace a single to close out our Pick 5 win!

Pick 5 I need a single is in race 1 Outlaw from trainer Miyadi who is 29% moving up in class like today, 24% route to sprint and 27% sprint to route to sprint. We get a sharp work and the horse is placed to be claimed but they want to get paid higher on the claim and the purse money.

Longshots of the Day:

Race 7 Nap Lajoie is 5-1 morning line and races protected today for trainer Steve Miyadi. He adds blinkers today and he is winning 42% adding blinkers. They have go fast early jockey Edwin Maldonado riding. Trainer is also 24% route to sprint and 27% sprint to route to sprint like today. This horse looks fantastic on paper at this price and the jockey/trainer in the money stats make it a must use.

Today’s Race 7 Late Pick 4 will cost $6 singling with horses listed in preference.





Today’s Race 1 Early Pick 5 will cost $48 singling with horses listed in preference


ALL or 6,3,2,5

ALL or 5,4



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.
