Santa Anita 01-20-2017 Free Plays

The rain which is so needed in So Cal is again messing up racing for us. Keep the tickets small. If the rains are as heavy as they expect they may cancel the card again.



In race 2 Spooky Woods ran second on a wet track Dec 30 so we will take the free spot here in a small field and look to key on some rolling doubles and Pick 3’s. In the 3rd race Popular Kid is another who liked a wet track winning on it last week, short turnaround but we get 8-1



Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 2: Popular Kid – see above

Today’s Late Pick 4 singling will cost $24 with horses listed in preference.






Races 1-5 selections and also for $18 Pick 5







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.


Irish horse racing saying –

“Bíonn grásta Dé idir an dialait agus an talamh.”

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