Santa Anita 03-31-2017 Free Plays

After winning the last 8 races on Sunday we ran up the score winning the 1st 4 legs on Thursday but alas it was not to be and we ran 2nd and 3rd on our cheap $12 Pick 5 and that race 5 also knocked us out of the $6 Pick 4! Too bad as our Pick 5 that was paying handsomely if we had a smidge more racing luck! For two sequences I did not like yesterday we came pretty dang close to taking down nice payoffs! The Pick 5 today is a little more than I would like to play but I feel we have to go ALL in third race, a race with 5 horses, 4 who look evenly matched and if you do 4 of 5 u do all!


Possible singles today:

In race 1 Dream Police is a 4/5 morning line favorite and recently those have done poorly in the opening race. Dream “should” win easily but it is hard to trust a horse who has won once from 16 starts. Bejarano and Baltas are winning 23% and Dream is dropping multiple classes (Baltas wins 11% on this) but Dream has lost as the fav the last 4 times. I am adding in XXXX


In race 2 XXX


Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 6: Swissarella, has won for nice prices for us over the last couple of years and is 2-0-3 from 9 at the distance, the fav only wins this race 14% and a horse over 5-1 has won 48% of the races

Race 7: XXX


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $9 with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $45 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.
