Santa Anita 10-07-2016 Full Card

We finally got the win yesterday taking down a $182.50 Pick 5, not bad for $18. The Pick 4 started off on a good note but that was it. The Friday card is HARD and has all the makings of some very big pay outs. The Pick 5 today has an $8k claimer in race 4 followed by Da Hill in race 5!




Pick 4 “I need a Single” is going to be in race 6 Closing Time with Baze riding, 2nd in both races including last out off a bobble at the start the late speed and extra distance in a race where nothing jumps out, single and move on!


Best Bets: In the Pick 5 I am singling in race 2  The Common Man, in the entire sequence this is the “best” potential single I could land on as there were no others I liked in here. Second last 2 including last out at this distance on turf



Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 3: Madiba, I dont use Dorf longshots much cause they usually get bet but he has been kinda cold this year in So Cal, off since May but has 2 wins from 3 at the distance

Race 4: Papaslilprincess, case of seconditus with 4 seconds from last 5 races but he is always right there and is due a picture, sharp work, great price

Race 7: Blue Tone, second start off a layoff has been racing in G1-3 over the last year, Desormeaux/Hess are 27%

Race 8: Wahine Warrior, the distance looks ideal here for this filly at a great 12-1 price. Jockey is 50% (4 of 8) for trainer, off since July with some sharp works in the last month


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $18 with horses listed in preference






Races 1-5 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.

“Bíonn grásta Dé idir an dialait agus an talamh.”

“The grace of God is found between the saddle and the ground.”
