Santa Anita Park Autumn Meet
Santa Anita will host another Breeder’s Cup before it takes its act back on the road again, but the most important news for handicappers is the installation of a new racing surface.
The surface which has been dubbed “El Segundo Sand” because of where it was excavated near LAX is supposed to be a drought friendly type natural material, which will also be the new surface for Del Mar Race Track next year.
14 % Pick 5 is back again
Once again the Pick 5 is back with its low 14 percent takeout and is the best bet at the track (Sorry Santa Anita it is not the Late Double with its 20 percent takeout). The Pick 5 is a 50 cent minimum bet and covers the first 5 races of the card. Until Santa Anita lowers its take out on its other wagers, you are much better off making Win-Place-Show wagers with its 15.43 takeout.
More on this takeout fiasco on a future post.
Don’t forget to sign up for our e-mail newsletter. The newsletter will be sent around 11 am every racing day of the meet. I promise to have some interesting insight into the day’s races at Santa Anita.
