Santa Anita 02-04-2017 Free Plays

What a great day of racing we have today with the early sequence loaded with short prices and short fields. The Late Pick 4 if the 1st or second choices are beaten is as wide open as it has been in weeks! The Pick 5 sequence today ends with 2 races that are as wide open too. If you have convictions in the 1st 3 legs and can single All, All will only cost $66. My longshots for today all have an interesting theme that we did well with at Del Mar!


In the Pick 4 Avicii in Race 7 goes out for Miller 1st off the claim and Miller is 4 of 5 1st off the claim




Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 4: XX

Race 5: XX

Race 6: Hollywood Don, Desormeaux and Miller team up, dropping in class with a sharp work and off a 6 month layoff Miller is lethal these days. I am also using Stringent in here with Joe and Hofmans, 2nd start off a long layoff, sharp work, 1st grass

Race 7: XX

Race 8: XX

Race 9: XX


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






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $48 for the 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.
