Free Pick of the Day for Sunday, Mar. 9


Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Sunday, Mar. 9

Santa Anita
4th race--
#4 ALPHA BULLET (9-2)
Recent maiden winner from Grayson barn looked good graduating and now takes on starter allowance foes around two turns on turf. If he handles the new game he looks like a very solid fit with these.

Yesterday's Result: OLIVER'S TALE ran out in 10th race.


Live Longshot: ROLO TAMACI (6th race)

ShowVivor: DUNMORE EAST (1st race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/2

Free Pick of the Day for Saturday, Mar. 8


Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Saturday, Mar. 8

Santa Anita
10th race--
#3 OLIVER'S TALE (3-1)
Lightly-raced horse from underrated Tsagalakis barn obviously has his share of problems but fires his best shot every time he runs. First or second in all four starts, 'TALE has trained well, has good early speed and is capable of firing his best shot fresh.

Yesterday's Result: RHAGORI ($4.80) won the 3rd race.

Live Longshot: BIG MACHER (7th race)

ShowVivor: CALIFORNIA CHROME (5th race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/1

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Friday, Mar. 7

Santa Anita
3rd race--
#5 RHAGORI (5-2)
English import joins Callaghan barn and lands leading rider Bejarano for her U.S. debut. A four-time winner (from 14 starts) in her native country, including a win vs. the boys, she figures to fire a good shot first time out.

Yesterday's Result: Missed exacta box in 5th race.


Live Longshot: SHACKLEFORD BANKS (2nd race)

ShowVivor: APPEALING RESUME (6th race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/0

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Thursday, Mar. 6

Santa Anita
5th race--
Exacta Box 3-5
On another card offering very little value, I will make an exacta box with KOZANI (5-2) and NUMBER FIVE (9-2). The former has run well in two starts for Sadler and should take to the hillside course while the latter has been gelded, gets Lasix and goes route to sprint for this.

Yesterday's Result: SHOER HUGH ran out in 4th race.


Live Longshot: NIAGARA FALLS (7th race)

ShowVivor: OUR DREAM QUEEN (6th race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/0

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Sunday, Mar. 2

Santa Anita
4th race--
#4 SHOER HUGH (4-1)
In a very wide-open heat, let's give a slight edge to this Miller-trained 4-year-old. He was no match for an easy winner when finishing second at this level last time and looks as good as any in a difficult contest.

Yesterday's Result: L X SUNRISE finished second in 6th race.

Live Longshot: FULL CONSENT (2nd race)

ShowVivor: TIME FOR ANGIE (3rd race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/1
