On The Contrary: Santa Anita’s Most Playable Longshots on Thursday


>>Thursday April 7th| Go To TFUS PPs for today’s races at Santa Anita

Note: The goal of “On The Contrary” is to point out several horses every day who may be overlooked in the wagering and who can possibly add value to trifectas and superfectas (in high holes and low) and to Pick 3s, Pick 4s, etc. We will not be making “selections” per se in “On the Contrary.” Rather, we’ll encourage readers to give extra consideration to certain horses who may seem a little overmatched at first glance–but who are in fact the type of horses we often build our bets around. >>See related interview on betting longshots.

 Race 4:

Gloria’s Angelo:

12-1 on ML:

Choked by slow pace in comeback race down the hill. Has a chance to slip into the super at a big price if going forward today and getting a trip from this lousy post.

Race 5:


6-1 on ML:

First-time starter lands in a field that looks quite shallow. She has been showing decent gate speed in the morning. Rider will help the price.

Race 6:

Stole My ‘Art:

20-1 on ML:

Received a difficult trip first off the layoff. Has strong back figures on synthetic and can possibly get into exotics at a giant price if she goes forward off that last race. In light with talented apprentice.
