06-25-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

Four more days of racing at the Great Race Place after today then its on to Los Al for a few days and then opening day at Del Mar on July 19th! We should start to see a lot of horses coming off extended layoffs in the coming days as trainers gear them up to race at Del Mar as is usually the case every year. The question you have to ask is are these plays or pay the bills races! The fields today are on the smaller side than what we have been seeing but should pay decently. I have a good feeling on the Pick 4 today so I am going with my normal bet size! The Pick 5 looks chalky with lots of singles potentially sprinkled throughout.



Don’t miss the action once the Santa Anita ends! Be sure to sign up for our free daily plays on our website. I will be emailing out my selections daily. Del Mar is where the price prices hit and where our biggest wins have come including the opening day Pick 5 last Summer

Possible singles today:

In race 2 Avicii for Miller should blow these horses out of the water, winner last race and Miller is 24% on that angle, 21% in sprints and the rail is winning 23%.


In race 5 Sour Shoes comes out for Miller who is 31% 2 year olds and this race has been run 5 times with the favorite winning 4 of them. If you need a single this is one but I am also shopping in this race too.


In race 6 Belvoir Bay for Miller comes off the bench after 8 months and won her only Hillside race. Miller is not one to be patient, if she is racing she is live.


In race 7 Serengeti from Baffert and Smith who are 8 for 8 in the last 2 months comes in as the 9/5 paper fav. The thing is while Baffert is hitting at 33% this year he is also inconsistent here in So Cal. He has blown up many of our Pick 4 and Pick 5 sequences this year singling.

Race 6:



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.
