10-14-2017 Santa Anita Free Plays

The Pick 4 today begins on the Hillside course with a stakes race that actually has a 42% win rate for the favorite. The Pick 4 today looks like it could pay very large and those who want to go large in other legs, namely race 7 and 8 where doing half the field or all in each may not work, there is a potential single in the 1st race on the Hillside course. Given the 42% fav win stat for this race that may be the path to victory today.

We have some very live looking longshots in the Pick 4 today and I will be looking to do a lot of superfecta, trifecta boxes using those selections.


Nakatani is winning 41% thus far at the meet on his handful of mounts and when jockeys heat up they heat up.

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $14.50-40.50 with horses listed in preference.

5 XX





Today’s Pick 5 will cost $8-16 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.
