06-09-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

Back to racing today and its a tough card with three Hillside races sprinkled throughout including two races in the Pick 4. I kept today’s tickets moderate again with a couple of nice longshots and a mix of 1’st and 2nd choices. In the Pick 5 I am making a stand against the paper favorite in race 2 and in the Pick 4 I am singling in race 6.

In race 2 there is a beatable favorite in Secret Shopper as Brad Free has noted 1 of 14 horses has won on this particular drop move, raced less than 2 weeks prior, trainer stats are so-so as well


Possible singles today:

In race 5 Juansagain is a single all the way in this sequence after a dominating win last out and to add to the appeal Miller claimed him off that race and his 1st off the claim stats are monstrous at 27% and 29% claim repeat.



Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 2: XX

Race 7: XX

Race 8: XX



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






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $18 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.
