Santa Anita 01-02-2017 Full Card

UPDATE: Race 6 use Tru Ranger # 12 on scratch of Big Champion


The rainy weather sure has messed up the card these past few days but it is needed here in So Cal and so we must try to handicap around it. The 5th race today was scheduled for the Hill but has been moved to dirt. And to make things even more interesting the late Pick 4 ends with an $8k claimer today!


For this 56 day meet I have some new options – the full meet is 60% off right now. You also have the choice of a monthly rate for 40% off. Click the link below to chose the plan that best suits you!



Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 1: Radish, tries turf for a hot trainer/jockey combo and stretches out for a price, the possible single in this race My Pi Romancer tried similar and woke up on turf

Race 3: Sure Luck, 10-1 with Iggy who won last out slightly shorter surging away, moving up in class decent work last week

Race 5: Stylistics United, not often you will see me throw in a 30-1 shot, was nowhere last out in a G2, drops today owns a win on the Hill but today we go on dirt, beat the favorite Big Champion in race 6 that day and 30-1 here? Absolutely!

Race 6: And The Some, two seconds and a win from last 3, sharp work for a trainer 23% 1st off the claim, rising in class so we get 10-1

Race 8: Sky Preacher, form notes last 3 races read rallied, rallied, up for second and the two second place finishes were shorter, the win was at this distance, Nakatani hops on for Baltas and he is 2-2 from 8 starts so far and a great 8-1 price

Race 9: Pat the Bear is 3-0-1 from 6 starts at the distance and was beat on the line last out going shorter and surging, off 5 months the last two times he came off the bench he won and we get 6-1


Today’s Late Pick 4 singling will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.






Races 1-5 selections and also for $54 Pick 5

7,3 (single 7 if you want to chop the price of the bet)






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.
