Santa Anita 04-20-2017 Free Plays

My plan is to continue to keep tickets on the low end and thus making a stand in a race or two is going to be a necessity. With the prices we are seeing on the card today for both the Pick 4 and Pick 5, if the 1-3 choices come in the pays will be low. In race 7 we have a 7/5 morning line fav off the bench after 8 months who Prat rode the last 4 races on but he does not today. There is a weight break using the bug boy but at 5 1/2 does that even matter? Beatable fav for sure! The Pick 4 today also begins and ends on the Hillside course.

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $13.50 with horses listed in preference.




9,3,X, X- superfecta box with these


Today’s Pick 5 will cost $27 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.
