10-26-2018 Santa Anita Full Card

This is the kind of Friday card that could see all favorites win or longshots so I am keeping the tickets on the low side, spreading a little and taking a shot in race 7 on the single.


Pick 5 I need a single is race  – none


Pick 4 I need a single is in race 7 Algorithmnblues has the top race speed and returns to dirt after a 2 length loss last out on turf. Trainer is 21% on this move. There is nothing much to beat in this race so singling


Longshots of the Day:

Race 2: Buck Duane, is 1 for 2 at the distance and cuts back after fading going 6/1/2 last out. Top speed and early speed and jockey is 29% for trainer we get 8-1 or more

Race 3: Artic Roll, 1st time UK horse adds Lasix for a trainer 22% shipping. I always bet 1st time Euros on the turf here. 5-1 or more would be great



Today’s Race 5 Late Pick 4 will cost $13.50 depending on singles with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Early Pick 5 will cost $54 with singles with horses listed in preference



9,7,4 (5)




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.”
