Santa Anita Sunday 04-09-2017 Full Card

It was bombs galore on the card yesterday with the Pick 5 paying $18k. The late Pick 4 was just as daunting but even with two price horses in the Pick 4 sequence it only returned $196. It has been a tough meet juggling longshots with real favorites but we have kept the tickets on the low end consistently as we aim for that big score. Today looks form full again – uh oh!


Possible singles today:

In race 10 Red Livy makes her US debut and Espinoza hops on, he had choices in this race and goes here and you know how I love first time Euro horses on turf!


Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 8: Sivali, off since last April he returns for a trainer who is 29% off long breaks

Race 9: Mistressofthenight, 15-1 for a Baltas with bullet best of the days works into this race for a jockey/trainer combo winning 33% from a large sample, stumbled at the start last out in a Grade 3, I’ll bite!


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $6 with horses listed in preference.







Race 6



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.
