10-09-20 Santa Anita Full Card

We have a Friday card devoid of value plays and usually that means tread lightly!

LA Times Value Play:

Race 7: Leprino won last out under the 1st time ride by Umberto Rispoli.  Rispoli leaves to ride Hidden Promise who he won on last out as well. That is a Sadler horse and Rispoli has been the regular rider Sadler so the jockey change is not a bad thing. In fact it means we get a better price that we might have on this class raise. Today Tyler Baze hops on. Leprino has as much speed as the top choices as well as a great closing kick so this 8-1 morning line is a nice value for us!

Value Plays for Today:.

Race 6: K P Day was ridden by Rispoli in the 1st 2 career races. After being claimed he was shipped up North for a ¾ length defeat. The race prior, that saw the claim, he lost by a head. This is a mediocre race so 10-1 for a horse always around the line entices me.

Typos happen and I do my best not to make them. Always read through my writeups to make sure the posted numbers are correct. I list Pick 4, Pick 5 selections and also a listing of all plays for each race. If there are any differences, please let me know.

*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.”
