2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks

November 15, 2014


DEL MAR Race #1

Saturday 11/15 12:30 PM Eastern

Top pick: #3 (FASCINATING) (7-5) - Filly is one of two entered by trainer Bob Baffert and appears to be the much better of the pair. Stakes placed as a 2-year-old she recently returned from an injury and finished an even fourth at Santa Anita at this distance on Oct. 10. It was her first in 12 1/2 months and she's worked fast since. Much the horse to beat.

2nd pick: #6 (Sky Mega) (7-2) - Stretch out sprinter just missed when debuting at Santa Anita at this level Oct. 3. She was involved from start-to-finish that afternoon but finished an even and disappointing fourth there two weeks ago. Daughter of "Sky Mesa" is brought back quickly and will be racing on a "ploy" surface and attempting a two-turn trip both for the first time.

3rd pick: #5 (Go Get Em Babe) (5-1) - The second of the Baffert fillies she's had trouble at the start in two of three outings and in the other she had some serious traffic issues. Four-year-old continues to work fast and is a factor from off the pace.
