Horse Racing Picks Santa Anita – Saturday, January 11, 2014


ACK ACK, ANCIENT TITLE, PRECISIONIST, CRIMINAL TYPE, FARMA WAY, TWILIGHT AGENDA, SILVER CHARM and CONGAREE are just a few of the horses that have won this race in years past. Here’s my Horse Racing Picks .

Horse Racing PicksRace 8 (Saturday, January 11, 2014: post time: 7:00 p.m./ET; 4:00 p.m./PT)
1 1/16 mile on main track (four-year-olds and up)

#1 BLINGO ran just twice in 2013, but was victorious in his last start at 19/1 at Belmont Park for trainer John Shirreffs.

#2 BLUESKIESNRAINBOWS is one of two in here trained by ‘King Jerry’ Hollendorfer and looks to be the controlling speed from his inside post.

#3 MAJESTIC CITY was a precocious two-year-old but only has one win in his last 10 starts (over a speed biased Santa Anita track during Breeders’ Cup week).

#4 SPUD SPIVENS hasn’t been postward since July 7, 2012 and is winless on any surface other than synthetic.

#5 MAJESTIC HARBOR returns to Southern California from the Midwest for his first start since late May.

#6 ROUSING SERMON is the leading money earner in the field, gets the services of leading rider Rafael Bejarano, likes this track and is the second runner in the field trained by Mr. Hollendorfer.

#7 DRILL is trained and owned by the same connections that won this race last year (COIL).

Horse Racing Picks

1. #2 BLUSKIESNRAINBOWS – Gate to wire possibility.
2. #6 ROUSING SERMON – Just missed to top choice.
3. #1 BLINGO – Same connections as Zenyatta.

LONG SHOT VALUE Horse Racing Picks PLAY: #5 MAJESTIC HARBOR – T. Baze in the saddle.

As a horseplayer, you should be always worried when something looks too obvious on paper, but that’s the dilemma I face here as no matter how much I try to think outside the box, I continually circle back to the two Jerry Hollendorfer runners. I’ll wager accordingly. Bet on Horse Racing.
