10-25-2018 Santa Anita Full Card

Small fields as we head towards the end of the Fall meet. This is a card my dad who loves favorites will enjoy today!



Pick 5 I need a single is race 1 Peach Cove with Van Dyke riding.  Won last out at this distance and level, has the top speed in this race and is 2nd off the bench for this race. In Race 2 Claudelle with Van Dyke again makes for a Drayden early double. Has run 2nd 2 times in a row and gets a major jockey upgrade. Top speed in the race and a sharp workout


Pick 4 I need a single is in race 8 Lucky Knickers, aside from the fact I have a pair of these and I like the name we get a horse dropping in class off a 3 wide race to 2nd place last out on the Hill, the top speed in the race, top last race speed and a great post for the Hillside course


Longshots of the Day:

None Today



Today’s Race 6 Late Pick 4 will cost $27 depending on singles with horses listed in preference.

2 (5,9)

2 (3)





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.

“Bíonn grásta Dé idir an dialait agus an talamh.”
