06-02-2017 Santa Anita Full Card

We had 4 of 5 in the Pick 5 yesterday, getting knocked out in the second race. Today’s card is a tough one and I found it very hard to keep the tickets on the manageable side. I am including all the horses I considered for the sequences so those who have larger bankrolls have more options. Even with the coverage I have today in the Pick 4 I still found it not enough! We have two Hillside races and a baby race to deal with.

Possible singles today:

In race 4 Desert Madam on paper should be one of the most logical winners of the weekend, 1st start in 6 months and gets in at this level on the race conditions for a gift of a win





Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 5: Upperclassman, Prat on a 12-1  with a sharp work for this, adds blinkers and Prat is 3 of 4 for trainer


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $45 with horses listed in preference.

2,7,5 (1)

3,2,6,8,1 or ALL

6,3,5 (4)

4,5 (6)


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.
