07-02-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

We hit 3 of 4 again yesterday in the Pick 4 with our longshot of the day Mucho Chrome winning the last race but in the race prior our other longshot of the day Touching Rainbows ran second to the Miller horse. As I had said in the writeup “ Race 10: Mucho Chrome with Talamo riding could be sitting on the win today, he closed into a fast pace last out on the Hill but had to race 6 wide and still closed nicely. When Talamo is on like he is right now he does great work on the Hill, horse was training at Los Al before that last race and since had trained here at SA. I love the price!”


The Pick 4 only paid $106 on a very nice $1m pool and with 3 of 4 on small tickets with a number of our longshots hitting I am very happy with the handicapping. We are right there sitting on the nice win! Prat leads Roman by one win with 3 days of racing left.

The Pick5 could very well chalk out today so if you want to tighten the bet from the $36 suggested bet I have do so. I have added a couple of longshots into the ticket in case there is the usual chaos we tend to see on cards that looks chalky!



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

Possible singles today:

In race 2 Diamondsandpearls comes out for Baffert/Smith who are 9 for 9 in the last 60 days. She cost $1.7m in March. If you need a single in the sequence this is one but I find it very hard to single any horse with these two! She may very well win easy but I will also use the speedster debuter Factorize


Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.







Today’s Pick 5 will cost $36 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.
