Friday’s Santa Anita Pick 6 & Pick 4 Tickets – Feb. 14

Thursday’s Santa Anita Park Recap – Feb. 13

Fast main track played fair (1 wire job @ 8f). Stalkers captured both turf races (8f, 6.5f). The turf rail was set at 30 feet.

Brice Blanc booted home a pair.

Using the Primary/Secondary ticket strategy on Thursday, I tabbed two Primary winners (Quiet Force, Bayern) and one Secondary winner (Clearly Confused).

forgot to add: the wider the lanes, the closer up the gate is placed and those positions have all been worked out as closely as possible.
MOST tracks have a compensatory mechanism to get as close to the final distances as possible. The Teletimer tech and Woodbine showed me how they have 5 different timer sensors to correspond to the five positions of the inner rail and they have worked out where to re-position the 8th poles to the equiavlent positions. All of these alteration is NOT DONE ROUTINELY at every turf course as the cost, he told me, ran around 2.5 million to initially install it. I hate having them run in lane 5 (furthest out from the rail) since the finish up almost directly below me and I have a very hard time accunting for stragglers. So long answer short: the overall distance are the same with these compensations at most MAJOR ovals.
I have a question. How does it impact the track when the rail is moved? Not sure what the difference is between the rail being at 15 or 30 feet.
