Santa Anita 03-19-2017 Free Plays

In the 1st leg of the Pick 4 yesterday we had 2 scratches giving us the favorite 3 times and we won and the favorites continued to win, that was until we got to the last race where we ran 2nd and 3rd yet again. The Pick 4 payout for the horse we didn’t have who was 3rd choice? $23! It just continues to be that kind of meet and for that reason we will continue to keep our ticket prices on the low end. Would we have had that Pick 4 if I did my normal betting strategy, absolutely. The thing is that $40.50 bet would have returned $23! Let’s see if we can end the week on a winning note after some very close calls.

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







Today’s Pick 5 will cost $2 or using all picks $24 with horses listed in preference.








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.
