    San Antonio Stakes (02/06/15)

    By Dan Zucker


    The Grade II San Antonio Stakes is the first major race of the year for older horses (4 years-old and up). In its 81st year, the San Antonio is run at 9 furlongs on the dirt at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California with a purse of $500K.

    And while the legendary Seabiscuit won this contest 75 years ago, The 2015 edition has been dubbed the San Antonio Showdown as Horse of the Year, California Chrome faces superstar Shared Belief. These two squared off just a few months ago in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic, and finished third and fourth respectively.

    Live coverage begins on Fox Sports 1 at 5:30 EST with post time at 7pm EST.

    At first glance this is a two horse race; however we'll discuss two other runners that could make exotic wagering more interesting.

    Hoppertunity (4-1)


    The morning-line second choice (6-1 odds behind California Chrome) in the 2014 Kentucky Derby, Hoppertunity was scratched a few days before the race due to a foot injury. He came back to the track with a vengeance winning both the Grade I Clark (11/28) and Grade II San Pasqual (1/10/15). Trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by Martin Garcia, this notorious tandem guided Bayern to the winner's circle in the controversial 2014 Breeders' Cup Classic.

    From a Pace Figure perspective his lifetime top was a 79/65.9 (final/4f) on 11/28, followed by a 75/68.2. Founder Cary Fotias would give horses like this a pattern of his own - NDAW, Never Done Anything Wrong. And while the notion is simple, the underlying principle NDAW is a runner who continues to improve regardless of the step up in competition.



    The Play: Fringe Contender – The rail, 28 days rest, Baffert and a juicy price that will be north of his morning line odds make him worth a look.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
