10-27-2018 Santa Anita Full Card

An early noon post time today for what looks like a great 11 race card. We start things off in race 1 on the Hillside course and race 4 is a maidens race that is so wide open what is a punter to do! All or single.



Pick 5 I need a single is race 4 Mad Mike. Coming off the bench from a race that saw the winner go on to win stakes races lets land here on Mad Mike as a single! We also have two bullet works in a race where its all or single.



Pick 4 I need a single is in race 9 Honeyfromthesouth from Baffert with Talamo riding and they are 29%. Top speed in the race, adds blinkers 1st time and Baffert is 32%, sharp work, red hot trainer (6 races 4 wins) a single all the way


Longshots of the Day:

Race 6: Super Duper Cooper with Prat who is 25% for trainer. Dropping in class we get 8-1, 2nd start off the bench and Prat chose to re-ride

Race 10: Tesora, trainer is 45% in Graded Stakes races and this horse has won 3 of 5. Top speed in the race and shipping in from Belmont for a trainer 29% on the move. They mean business and the 6-1 price is great



Today’s Race 8 Late Pick 4 will cost $18 depending on singles with horses listed in preference.


5 (9,11)




Today’s Early Pick 5 will cost $16 with singles with horses listed in preference







Race 6-7:




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.”

“The grace of God is found between the saddle and the ground.”
