06-24-2018 Santa Anita Full Card

We hit the big $2,863 Pick 5 yesterday for our meager $48 bet! That’s how you end a meet right before heading off to the big payout track of Del Mar in three weeks! The handicapping has been right there over the last couple of weeks and now the big payoffs are starting to roll in! It was another chaos filled mid-card yesterday that resulted in yet another carryover in both Pick 6 pools and that means today is mandatory payout day! Expectations are the pool for the Pick 6 could approach $4-5m and that will goose the other pools as well. I have a $54 Pick 4 ticket for today as well.


I hope you have enjoyed and profited from my racing analysis at the Santa Anita Meet.

Longshots of the Day:

Race 3: Allaboutmike, would like more than 5-1 but won last out gate to wire going a mile for Miller who risked losing to a low level trainer but Bejarano hops on. Cutting back to the Hillside course off a gate to wire mile race means this dude is super fit, top speed and trainer is 2 of 6 1st off the claim and horse loves the course. Oh, the second place horse in the last race returned to win

Race 9: Bella Luma, has won three in a row up north and takes a big jump up in class but there is one form line I love reading and that is “driving” and we get that notation for the last 2 wins. Trainer has only one won Graded stakes but it was for a price. Stakes winning in bloodlines and dam has 5 turf winners. We get 15-1 or more and this race is won 23% by horses over 10-1

Race 11: Taniko, 20-1 or more for D’Amato but Talamo hops on and he is 41% form 17 races. Could be a prep for Del Mar but note those races at a mile and eight were the best. We get a sharp workout for this race, runs protected – I believe this horse is live at a giant price

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.
