Horse Racing Pick - February 16, 2012
We again have two races apiece from Aqueduct and Tampa Bay Downs.
From the west we return to Santa Anita for four premium races.
Get on board with all picks here.
East Coast Results: Tampa Bay Downs Race #3 Top Pick #2 (Reigning Livia) $3.20.
Top pick: #6 (CORONADO CHARLIE) - Trainer Jane Cibelli is having a strong meet here (39-10-5-4) and she's known for having her maidens ready second time out. This gelding by Bwana Charlie tired when going two-turns on the grass racing for $32K on Jan. 25 when making his first start. Cibelli drops him down to race for $8000 and switches him from turf to dirt. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #3 (Baby Letters) - Grey 3-year-old by "Alphabet Soup" chased a wire-to-wire winner last out and held to finish second in a small field (5). Gelding was heavily favored that day and hit the side of the gate at the start. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Extra Brew) - He's showing some signs of getting the "hang of things" and his trainer (Lynne Scace) is quietly having a solid meet (49-10-4-8). This colt by "Milwaukee Brew" is stretching-out for the first time and he improved a bit last out when wearing blinkers for the first time.
4th pick: #7 (Woods Hole) - He looked like the winner last out racing at this price and distance eight days ago, but the heavy favorite nailed him by a nose right on the wire. This is start No. 18 for him and this field is a bit tougher than he faced in his narrow defeat.
