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


>>Friday May 20th | 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:

Holiday Movie:

8-1 on ML:

Ran on bad rail at Los Al. Still managed to improve her speed figure. Has a longshot look in here if she can shake loose early.

Race 3:

Zuri Chop:

15-1 on ML:

Stretches back out today and might be able to secure a good spot behind questionable ML favorite Batti Man. If so, and if he’s at his best, he can hang around at a price.

Race 5:

Gloria’s Angel:

20-1 on ML:

Ran well down the hill off a long layoff. Returned to train superbly for a capable trainer. Draws the perfect post. Would not exclude from exotics at a big price.
