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


>>Friday April 8th| 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 2:

Maid Easy:

10-1 on ML:

We think she might be a little better than she looks on paper. Has decent speed figures two and three races back. Has trained surprisingly well since her last start. Has enough speed to stay in touch. Chance to get into exotics at a price.

Race 3:


8-1 on ML:

Back in form and is not facing tougher here. Just earned a decent figure down the hill and is an exotics threat right back.

Race 5:


8-1 on ML:

Has faced tougher and has reasonably competitive speed figures. In light with apprentice and can make a late run if she gets a decent trip.
