It was another nice day yesterday with my Best Bet coming in plus the early double that paid $85 for $6 and we also nailed the Pick 4! I switched things up a bit over the last few days and it has turned around nicely for us! Let’s keep this streak going today with some Friday nighttime racing! Extra suggested bets are posted on my website.
I am going four deep in the first leg today. #1 Housemaker picks up Bejarano. # 8 Socialized has Prat. An interesting stat brought to us by Brad Free is that Prat and Bejarano have won 24 of 65 turf races at Santa Anita. Those are stats to watch! #2 Kathy Drama for the productive Miller/Baze tandem will be looking to make amends after a bad trip last out. I have bet the #10 Luvuryan before and I need a price here and a second place finish last out jumps out at me.
The second leg of today’s Pick 4 is another 5 furlong sprint. I am going to single the #9 in here, Annie’s Candy. She finished second in here debut despite having to race 4 wide and the added distance today should bring the win. If you need more coverage then #2 Boldly True from Hollendorfer and Bejarano is one to use. The other firster worth using here is #1 Nyquit from O’Neill who first time starters are off to a great start.
In the 7th race Prat hops on #2 Elementar who won nicely off a 7 month layoff. She stretches out today and part & Mandella are 5 for 25. #6 Morning Coffee is looking for her third straight win so we have to use here and at 5-1 and Baze riding she is even more compelling. We then come to #7 Paulina’s Love with Baltas and Bejarano and their 60% win rate!
Baze is going to try for the late double with #4 Newfound Gold. Baze and Miller are 30% and this horse LOVES Santa Anita with 5 wins, 4 seconds and 2 thirds here. #2 Endless Cruise was on May 1 in a live race that saw two next out winners. #7 Parliamentarian was at the $8k level and moves up for a trainer/jockey tandem winning 2 of 3.
My ticket will cost $36
For added coverage this ticket will cost $54
If you trust in the single in the race 6 it will cost $18
Today’s Best Bet is in race #1, Oligarch who is 2 for 2 on dirt and races on dirt today after a 3rd place finish on turf last out.
