Santa Anita 01-21-2017 Free Plays

It was another very close day for us as we ran 4 of 5 in the Pick 5 and 3 of 4 in the Pick 4. We continue to be right there each day so we are getting good play for our punting especially given the low cost of our tickets. All we need now is a smidge of racing luck to start pulling down those big pay days! We get a reprieve from the rain today but there will be no turf races into next week and the track is likely to continue to be sloppy fast. Keep the tickets small.



The Pick 5 is on the cheap end today with 2 selections in each race so I will be looking to do some rolling doubles and Pick 3’s the selections as well as some trifecta boxes using the 2 selections plus the gate time longshot in each race



Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 4: XX

Race 8: Bolita Boyz, Prat  rides  ran 2nd losing by a neck going shorter


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $27 with horses listed in preference.






Races 1-5 selections and also for $16 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.
