10-26-2019 Santa Anita Full Card

The last weekend before the Breeders Cup and we finally get a GREAT card today to make some money on!

My Breeders Cup pre-sale is on sale right now, both days for $35 a discount of 30%.

Pick 5 I need a single is in race 1 Platinum Equity who should DOMINATE this fields. Won last out at this level and the horse simply loves Santa Anita going 6 of 7. An early Daily Double with Zorich in race 2 who is dropping multiple classes for Glatt (38% with 58% in the money) with Cedillo riding (38%). Top speed, top class top horse for the double win.

Pick 4 I need a single is in race  – none

Longshots of the Day:

Race 3: Magically Honored is a Andrew Lerner/Martin Garcia play and they are 2 of 3 recently. Lerner is 21% MSW, 17% 2 year olds, 25% on the year and all with positive ROI. His in the money percentages are off the page as well at 40% plus this year. The horse was claimed off a 2nd place finish at Golden Gate from red hot DougO’Neill so from one hot trainer to another we go. Races protected today in a sign of confidence as well and we are getting 8-1 or more! This is an excellent betting race.

Race 5: Canadian Game gets Cedillo today who is 38% for this trainer and a major upgrade. 2nd start off the layoff we get a great 9/2 price in a race I don’t like the favorite. Was trained by O’Neill before the claim in January and bench rest and that was right before the O’Neill horses woke up in a big way. 2nd off the layoff is Carava’s best ROI stat winning 19% and ITM 45%. The horse had a HORRIBLE trip last out, watch the race replay, boxed in and wanting to race but having to be pulled multiple times. When he finally got room late he surged to miss by a length, an impressive feat giving all the pulling, usually horses give up when they want to run and are not allowed to.

Race 7: Great Sister Dane ships in from Gulfstream Park for trainer Rohan Crichton. He is 25% shipping. Jockey Jeffrey Sanchez is riding and he 37% for this trainer and this is his only mount today. Immediately this tells me they think this horse has a real chance.  This horse has the top speed in the race and comes in with some sharp works on the class raise. 6-1 morning line for what looks like a live value plays we must use.

Race 9: Square Peggy won at this level and distance October 12 and will try the same tactic again with Maldonado riding – gate to wire. Top back speed, top class and top early pace we are getting 5-1, perhaps more against this mediocre bunch and has already won at this level. Yes!

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.
