The “Sky” Won’t Fall At Santa Anita (6/28/15)

Jun 28th, 2015 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Sunday card — trying something different since the local racing is still very wet and off the turf and this card at Santa Anita is a competitive handicapping challenge, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 5, Grazen Sky (#3) is back on dirt, has the best speed and the best local jockey — wires these as the second choice.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 7.

In race 8, Salah Champ (#6) ships on for crafty trainer and has the speed to lead these all the way — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 7, 8 and 6

Race 2: 7, 2 and 4

Race 3: 7, 4 and 6

Race 4: 5, 6 and 2

In race 6, Joking (#8) will never get a better pace to set up late run and may be 5-1.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
