I will be back to doing my detailed analysis for the Santa Anita later this month!
The 1st leg of the Pick 4 today has been run 6 times with zero favorites winning. 3 were won by 5-1 or lower horses, 3 were won by horses 10-1. If you have singles in other legs an ALL button play here is not crazy!
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $12 or $66 with horses listed in preference
9,6 or ALL
The Pick 5 has become almost impossible at Del Mar unless your bankroll is giant. I have my selections for the 1st 4 races but my eye is on exotics.
In the first race today #2 Dragon Flower when looking at the form both the trainer and jockey have crazy big positive ROI’s. The trainer is 2 for 4 on 2 year olds, 4 of 9 this year and this jockey won last out on this horse. A good spot for a single in exotics. In race #2 horses priced 5-1 or more have won 60% of 15 races.
Races 1-5 selections Pick 5 costs $44.50 or $9
3, (11 if it gets in off the AE)
ALL or 9,6
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.
