Santa Anita Full Card 12-30-2017

It was another day of low pays with chalks winning all but one race in each sequence. We continue to see healthy monies flowing into the Pick 5’s and Pick 4 so a couple of longshot races with these types of pools should lead to some large payoffs for small ticket bets! Our single bets continue to win for us but the 3rd leg of the sequence has been our downfall – getting close and getting close when the pays are low sets us up for that big payday!


New for the Santa Anita meet I am also offering a monthly subscription for 75% off. That’s right for $32 a month you get everything. That’s the cost of 4 race days and you get the other 12 days of racing free a month!




Today’s Full Card is only $8.




Single Candidates:

Race 3 Dad’s a Gambler 2nd start off the bench ran 2nd last time despite bobbling at the start going shorter so a clean takeoff and the added half furlong with Bejarano riding on the drop in class today should be all that’s need for the win


Race 9 Comes the Dream has not raced in a year for Puype and today they risk for $25k in the comeback. Bills to pay and Puype wins off the bench and usually that means live. We get 6-1 here and all my sequences are going to depend on this single. He is 2-2-1 from 6 starts at the distance. I don’t like the Jacobson dropping fav and if I did not single this guy the ticket would require multiple horses here


Longshots of the Day:

Race 1: Bella Be Ready, I don’t like the post but when Roman rides for Miyadi on a price horse you pay attention. Miyadi is 19% 1st time turf, has breeding for grass and we get 10-1 or more in a race horses over 10-1 have won 42%!

Race 5: Fast Johnny Ringo, as you all know I like betting Talamo when he rides for daddy in law, was well bet in his debut but was out for a jog and ran 7th, Ellis is 23% in maiden claiming races and we get a giant price

Race 6: Camino de Estrella, 12-1 on a nice closer with Bejarano riding in a race that sets up perfect for his style, distance looks perfect for a horse that can pass others in the lane


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






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $36 or $72 with horses listed in preference





10,7 (2)


Today’s Late Pick 5 will cost $9 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.


Irish horse racing saying –

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

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