Transition starts now as it’s Re-Opening Day at Santa Anita Park where I’ve completely handicapped all 9 races with Pick5, Pick4 and Pick3 wagers suggested. Full fields await as racing starts again across the USA.
Torrential rain all weekend at Gulfstream Park will limit the selections down there but once scratches & changes go up for today’s races, I’ll take a look at the Late PK5. If it looks worthy and presents some value, I’ll post it. I am done with Gulfstream Park as my primary focus.
Saturday the fun really begins as Churchill Downs re-opens to jam packed fields with an All Star Cast of characters. With NY still closed, the will be a reverse Saratoga meet until NY comes back on line. Normally KY is closed so all those horses migrate to Saratoga, add in the sharp Mid-Atlantic shippers – and that’s what makes Saratoga so competitive and tough. The reverse happens this year with NY closed, all the winter locales have stopped and horses have congregated at Churchill Downs. These races will now be the focus on America’s Day at the Races telecasts which air Friday through Sunday from 1:30 to 8:30 on FS1. NBCSC also shows races Friday through Sunday showing the TVG broadcast – so lots of action on TV and I have you covered.
The races promise to be deep and competitive so that’s where I’ll be focused. They only have one turf course so I expect three turf races a day. On Saturday, one of the turf races drew 12 Starters, 8 Also Eligibles & excluded 22 other runners! 40 turf horses ready to go shows you how deep and fun these races will be. I’ll have Santa Anita Park again on Saturday with Full Card Selections so we’ll have plenty of action to make some money.

For Friday’s Free Pick ~
Santa Anita Race 1 – #4 PARTY TOWN – This gelded son of Cupid’s Revenge by Shackleford had one race in 2020 but it was against the monster named Nadal. He regroups today at the proper class level as a first time gelding. He will be forwardly placed from the bell and should hold off the closers for victory to start the afternoon.
The very best of luck!
