Santa Anita 02-19-2017 Full Card

Another sloppy track awaits us today and with that in mind I am keeping the tickets on the low end. All races are on the dirt today as well. We have Holiday racing starting at noon tomorrow so I will be looking to keep the ammo dry for then! Everyone will be looking at a free spot today in the Pick 4 with Sunday Rules in race 7. 3/5 in a non-graded stakes race is tough to swallow especially on an off track and with the chaos we have seen in races like this so far this season. I am going to go a little deeper in here hoping the long layoff means this just a prep for the favorite.


Possible singles today:

In race 4 Night’s Watch with Prat riding, off 3 months and showed nothing in his 3 starts he drops after being gelded and put in 2 sharp works in January




Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 3: Private Terrace, with the scratch of Melanistic this should be Ipray’s race but if we are looking for some chaos at 10-1 put in a sharp work last week and the rail is winning this race 32% of the time thus far

Race 7: Late ‘n Left, has won 3 of last 4, big jump in class but at 12-1 we are hoping the fav bombs here, she will try to gate to wire with the Sunday Rules



Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $18 with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $12 with horses listed in preference.







Race 6 selections are



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.
