Horse Racing Picks



LEG 1: (Race 6: Dirt, 6F, MC20k)

My Tigress #4, Umberto Rispoli/JJ Sierra (4/1)

Siena Silk #10, Trevor McCarthy/Ryan Hanson (6/1)

Notes: both these runners are lightly-raced, which is a solid feature in these MC events … Trainer Hanson pairs with McCarthy who is now putting down roots in SoCal …

Selections: 4/10 (2-Deep)


LEG 2: (Race 7: Turf, 1 Mile, American S. (G3)

Neptune’s Storm #3, Flavien Prat/Peter Miller (4/5)

Notes: Flavien Prat’s hegemony on the SoCal circuit is like the NE Patriots of old in the AFC East; Miller has the prohibitive fave in this one … it’s a “Single” …

Selections: 3 (Single)


LEG 3: (Race 8: Dirt, 5F, Fasig-Tipton Debutante S. $100k)

At the Spa #2, Tyler Baze/Jorge Periban (2/1)

Notes: Out of these young fillies, this Periban Barn member is graduating quickly from the MSW ranks into this “Non-G” spot … she has major speed and ability after breaking her maiden … Vet Tyler Baze is going to try to guide her to victory … short field, highly possible …

Selections: 2 (Single)


LEG 4: (Race 9: Turf, 1 Mile, Wilshire S. (G3)

Brooke (CHI) #2, Umberto Rispoli/Mike McCarthy (5/1)

Querelle #4, Trevor McCarthy/Peter Miller (12/1)

Leggs Galore #6, Ricardo Gonzalez/Phil D’Amato (3/1)

Stela Star (IRE) #7, Flavien Prat/John Sadler (4/1)

Notes: An open edition of the Wilshire (G3) is up for grabs … my lead horse is a mare out of No Nay Never … the accomplished conditioner, Mike McCarthy’s year continues to get better and better for the Preakness-winning trainer … good price on this former Chilean runner …

Selections: 2/4/6/7 (4-Deep)


LEG 5: (Race 10: Dirt, 6F, MSW61k)

Lisette #5, Umberto Rispoli/Paddy Gallagher

Shell Shock #6, Abel Cedillo/Carlo Vaccarezza

Rev Rita #8, EA Ellingwood/Tim Yakteen

Notes: Tim Yakteen has a filly out of Orb that looks like an excellent worker; this is her debut, but she could jump up at a square price and break her maiden … this is the toughest race in the whole sequence in my opinion … consider hitting the “All” button if you can afford it …

Selections: 5/6/8 (3-Deep)


LEG 6: (Race 11: Turf, 6½F, AOC20k)

Big Clare #1, Umberto Rispoli/Phil D’Amato (5/1)

Empress of Fire #2, Ricardo Gonzalez/John Sadler (6/1)

Shylock Eddie #6, Trevor McCarthy/Brian Koriner (6/1)

Gypsy Blu #7, Flavien Prat/Peter Miller (3/1)

Smiling Annie #8, Abel Cedillo/Mark Glatt (6/1)

After Midnight #12, JJ Hernandez/Carla Gaines (12/1)

Notes: Nothing like ending on a classic turf sprint @SA … leave no stone unturned, and that is what I have tried to do in this situation. I like Carla Gaines’ entry the most because of who is riding (Hernandez), and this young one is as fresh as can be. She was excellent as a 2-yr-old last season, and could mature into a top grass runner … time will tell … Good luck tabbing a winner in the last!

Selections: 1/2/6/7/8/12 (6-Deep)


Ticket Construction:

$1.00 P6 TICKET COST: $144.00


Enjoy the last Sunday of the Santa Anita Meet for the 2020-2021 Season! Mandatory payouts are here! On to Del Mar!
