Free Pick of the Day for Thursday, Jan. 9

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Thursday, Jan. 9

Santa Anita
3rd race--
Finding value has been extremely difficult the past week or so at Santa Anita but let's give a slight edge to recent Hollendorfer claim. The 4-year-old gelding comes off a runner-up try over the HP grass and goes to a barn that hits at nearly 40% first off the claim. Switching to Bejarano doesn't hurt, either.

Sunday's Result: HANNA NO SIR finished second in 9th race.

Live Longshot: AMINA PERFECT (8th race)

ShowVivor: MONASTIC (7th race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/0 features:
--Daily Graded Handicap Selections
--Premium Selections on Weekends and Monday holidays
--Free Pick of the Day
--Useful Links and Racing Info
