Santa Anita 04-10-2016



Another meet comes to an end today at the Great Race place but only till May 5th. I will continue coverage of the Los Alamitos meet on my website during the short break from Santa Anita! We hit 3 of 4 on the Pick 4 again yesterday but the selections for the Pick 5 resulted in a decent $443 payout. We have rain in the forecast again today so I am keeping my ticket on the low end and singling the Desormeaux brothers in the last leg (a pair that has a habit of winning the last races of meets). Feel free to add additional horses for more coverage.


Best Bets:

Race 6: Hoosier Road

Race 11: Watch Me Now



Longshots of the Day:

Race 1: Double Expresso



Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $12 with horses listed in preference.



2,3 (11)

6 (7,5)


Races 1-7 sections and also for Pick 5, exacta and trifecta boxes

5,1 (11,7)

1,2 (4)

2,6 (1)




8 (3,5)


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.
