Santa Anita 11-03-2016 Free Plays + Breeders Cup Preview

Another 3 out of 4 on Sunday but if there is a positive its that we have been right there over the last several days ready to hit the big one and this weekend is the Breeders Cup! Let go out there and build a nice bankroll for what looks to be the Best Breeders Cup series ever!

The Pick 5 ends with an $8k claimer and that also begins the late Pick 4. I am not spending much on the tickets today but have a good mix of favorites and longshots.



For my Breeders Cup Special this weekend I have gone through every horse racing and made notes on their form. Horses that have their entire write-up in bold are my top contenders but there are also horses with just their names bolded as ones with a chance. I have listed under each race the suggested picks for Pick 4, 3 and double legs as well as trifecta and superfecta selections. These are suggestions for every race and dependent on each punter what they use or don’t. I have given many options for the Breeders Cup cards for punters who bet small to big.  I have included for free today Saturday’s Breeders Cup Race 5 write-up to give you an idea of what to expect. The price for the Friday Breeders Cup Card will be $15 and the Saturday Card will be $25. Get them today for $30 and saves 33%.

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






Races 1-5 selections and also for $27 or $54 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.


Whenever we have a scratch of a suggested play in a sequence go to the website using the password that is emailed out with each card to see if there are any needed changes. If there is a late scratch after a bet is done and I do not put in an alternative it means I am looking to getting the post time favorite. If it is an early scratch and I do not add in an extra horse it means I am looking to just having one less selection in the sequence and a cheaper bet. Be sure to check the site to see if there are any changes prior to the Pick 4 and Pick 5 sequences
