What a fantastic day of racing today at Santa Anita with five Grade 1’s on the card! Today’s Pick 4 has a free spot in Beholder although she did kill our ticket the last time we singled her! Yesterday our best bet of the day came home at a nice price of 9/2 and the rolling doubles and Pick 3’sd off of it paid very nicely. In the 1st leg of the Pick 4 our longshot Richard’s Boy had the race in the bag in the stretch only to stumble and lose to our nemesis Smith. Huge pays already for the 1st day of racing with the Pick 5 paying $25k! With the sizes of the fields today there will be some chaos so lets see if we can pad our account with some more wins!
Pick 4 “I need a Single” is going to be Beholder in race 9. Singling here allows us to spread lot of longshots in the other legs. This strategy did backfire on us last time however so if you want to add other coverage then back out the bottom plays in the other legs to lighten the ticket. Sharp workout last week, revenge time over Stellar Wind
Best Bets: I have two Best Bets today one in the Pick 5 and the other of course California Chrome. After that dominating race last out how can you not make him the best bet of the day. No value of course but I do have choices for the exacta, trifecta keys and rolling doubles into and out of the race.
In the Pick 5 I am singling in race XXXXX
Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these
Race 1: Sergio, Ruis/Garcia team up again and they are 40% on longshots, sharp works, Talamo rode the debut and he was off at Del Mar
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $40 with horses listed in preference.
Races 1-7 selections and also for $36 Pick 5, exacta and trifecta boxes
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.
