Santa Anita 03-30-2017 Full Card

After losing the 1st race on Sunday we proceeded to sweep the next 8 races but the pays were nominal again including a small $67 Pick 4 win. Again the strategy of keeping the tickets on the low end pays off but even with these low ticket costs we have a nice mix of longshots! Today’s tickets are on the very cheap side because I just don’t like the sequence, it could chalk out or pay huge but its not a sequence I want to pay up on.


Possible singles today:

In race 3 Distinctiv Passion comes in here off a win 2nd start off the bench with bullet works again


In race 6 the fav wins 47% of the time and in this race that fav is Champions Dinner who ran on strong for 2nd last out going shorter and should like the added distance today


In race 7 Moonlight Drive Bejarano rides for Baffert and is 3 of 4 with a positive ROI, off the bench


Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 7: Patentar, Prat had choices in here, we have a possible single with the Baffert horse but the ticket is cheap so we can add in a 5-1 shot, off the bench from August


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $6 with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $18 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.


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.”
