06-09-2019 Santa Anita Full Card

I will be a featured guest on Quigley’s Corner at Santa Anita today going over the full Sunday card. The TV show begins at 11:50 PST and can be seen on-site, facebook.com/watchxbtv or on the Xpressbet XBTV app!

Pick 4 I need a single is in race 5 Ginger Nut shipped in from Keenland by Sadler who is 27% shipping. The rail is winning 27% in 5 furlong turf races. That last race win was simply a joy to watch going from 10th to win

Pick 5 I need a single is in race – none today longshot shopping

Longshots of the Day:

Race 1: Playa Chica is 10-1 morning line and the “other Baltas” but Prat is riding and that upgrades the horse immediately as they are winning 43% as a tandem. 3rd start off the layoff this price is too hard to ignore

Race 2: Fast Cotton races protected today in this allowance race. Won last out beating Saturday’s race 7 favorite Market Sentiment going gate to wire. Stretching out today we also have some nice works

Race 6: Alleva is the other O’Niell that Bejarano choses to stick with and they are winning 32%. Won last out at this distance

Race 8: Pammi Desert is 12-1 morning line but Flavian Prat is riding for trainer Gary Mandella. Debut race today and he is o for 10 in turf debuts and is known as a patient trainer but this is the kind of horse these two win on. Debut winner in bloodlines. Prat chose this horse over the 2nd favorite

Today’s Race 6 Late Pick 4 will cost $36 or $18 singling with horses listed in preference.




8,3 (6)

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


6,5,1 (3)



3,5 (2)

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.”
