Free Pick of the Day for Sunday, Jan. 26


Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Sunday, Jan. 26

Santa Anita
7th race--
#1 CHELIOS (9-5)
Excellent runner-up try in debut outing for this Proctor-trained homebred. The sophomore colt by Distorted Humor was second to a sharp winner and only figures to improve off the race for red-hot connections.

Yesterday's Result: BIG MACHER ($6.20) won the 8th race.

Live Longshot: BLACK SPIRIT (4th race)


ShowVivor: FOREST BOY (1st race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/4

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Saturday, Jan. 25

Santa Anita
8th race--
#10 BIG MACHER (3-1)
Ultra-sharp sprinter from underrated Baltas barn comes off a fine runner-up try vs. open allowance runners and is drawn perfectly outside. Bejarano rides back, so let's “single” him in the Pick Six (carryover more than $74,000).

Yesterday's Result: YANKEE REBEL finished second in 5th race.

Live Longshot: AWESOME RETURN (10th race)


ShowVivor: NOOTEN (1st race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/3

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Friday, Jan. 24

Santa Anita
5th race--
#5 YANKEE REBEL (9-5)
Seems almost automatic when Hollendorder takes one off the claim that they come back to win their next start. 'Rebel comes off a runner-up try for $40,000 (4-year-olds), catches a lackluster field and retains leading rider Bejarano.

Yesterday's Result: THROUGH MY EYES finished fourth in 5th race.

Live Longshot: TRUELEE SCRAPPIN (6th race)


ShowVivor: CORINTHIAN MELODY (1st race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/2

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Thursday, Jan. 23

Santa Anita
5th race--
#8 THROUGH MY EYES (4-1)
Gelding from Mullins stable turned in a nice runner-up effort vs. open MC$40,000 sprinters in his comeback race and might be the one to beat as he steps up into this Cal-bred maiden special weight. He will try stretching out on turf but offers some value at the morning line price.

Yesterday's Result: CLOSET E ran out in 4th race.

Live Longshot: DO SOME MAGIC (5th race)


ShowVivor: RUNAWAY QUE (8th race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/1

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Monday, Jan. 20

Santa Anita
4th race--
#2 CLOSET E (6-1)
Second O'Neill-trained entrant in the race (also sends out 2-1 favorite Bury Pacer) but expecting a solid run from this son of Street Sense. He puts blinkers back on, figures to make the lead as he stretches out in distance again and retains top turf rider Nakatani.

Yesterday's Result: SHARED MAGIC finished third in 3rd race.

Live Longshot: MORE COMPLEXITY (7th race)


ShowVivor: INDIANAPOLIS (2nd race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/0
