10-28-2018 Santa Anita Full Card

The Pick 6 Jackpot has a $920k rollover into today’s 9 race card. I am spending a little more on the Pick 4 ticket than normal as there are no sure locks today. Race 7 will the the key to today’s Pick 4.  



Pick 5 I need a single is race 2 Princess Roi with Prat riding and he is 21% for Baltas. Highest speed in the race and some sharp works. Part landed here instead of the Siberian Iris


Pick 4 I need a single is in race -none


Longshots of the Day:

Race 3: Aggressivity, when Talamo rides for Ellis I bet the horse. Ellis is 2-2 recently. Jockey fell off at the start at Del Mar and Ellis is 21% off the bench. 6-1 or more is great

Race 6: Silver Summer, 2nd start off a year break races protected again today. Horse has 2 wins and a second from 6 Hillside races and that matters. Has early speed and showed that on the 14th before fading and early speed is winning here. 20-1 is a giant price for the Hillside

Race 7: Livin On Prayer was claimed by Miller off a win at Del Mar, Prat rode and the horse faded, a rarity for a Miller claimer. 1st timing routing and Miller is only 12% on this but he is 24% 2nd off the claim and jockey fig is winning 28%. 6-1 or higher in a wide open race



Today’s Race 6 Late Pick 4 will cost $54 depending on singles with horses listed in preference.

11,3,7 (8)





Today’s Early Pick 5 will cost $24 with singles with horses listed in preference


1 (5,6)





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.
