Thoroughbred Thursday- Pick 5 at Santa Anita

Gotta love the 50 cent pick 5 wager at Santa Anita Park, no matter what the outcome it seems to always pay very good. Just find a couple prices here and there and you are already looking at a payout in the thousands.
Here is my early pk5 play for today:

Race 1: Baffert has two entries here and i am going to single #6 Sir allison with martin garcia aboard and i like this 3yo las race here at santa anita where he showed good speed going 7 furlongs. Cuts back in distance today to 6 furlongs. Gone.

Race 2: 3 deep in this event to cover my ticket with #2 lodi red, #4 its no unusual and #7 gatheratthealtar.
lodi red is my top pick off consistent efforts but like its no unusual third off the layoff and getting the services of Garret Gomez. Gatheratthealter goes first off the claim for baffert. Baffert doesent usually claim and when he does we have to take notice.

Race 3: most wide open race in my opinion. Four deep to cover my play. #1 Great Rising Star, #2 tiz a trip, #7 Fordham road, and #8 silver dragon.

Race 4: two deep in this event with #7 Dream Caught which is dropping in class, second start, good works over santa anita dirt, and rosario sticks with mount for a low profile barn. Also using #9 Showmethemoneyjim which is a first time starter for the Jeff Mullins barn. Mullins is always dangerous but this time i like the earlier works showing for this 3yo and i like that apprentice Eswan Flores is riding.

Race 5: To close out our ticket I am going two deep. #1 last sting has some consistent efforts at this level and the rail draw with the club house turn being close after the start gives some advantage to this guy who has Joel Rosario aboard. My top pick however is #4 Blue samurai, i like his last couple of races and like Gomez taking the call for a hot barn.

pick 5 recap $24: 6/2,4,7/1,2,7,8/7,9/1,4
