2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
August 16, 2014
DEL MAR Race #10
Saturday 08/16 06:45 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (BAYVIEW DRIVE) (5-1) - He tired after chasing the pace from a tough outside post facing tougher on July 26th. It was his first off an 8-week break and trainer Jeff Mullins brings him back quickly, drops him in class, and colt draws a much better starting slot.
2nd pick: #9 (Classified Weapon) (7-2) - Lightly-raced colt began his career in England and raced evenly here in his North American debut on July 26th. Useful effort came off a 10 1/2 month layoff and he's brought back quickly, drops in class, has blinkers added, and retains Bejarano.
3rd pick: #4 (True Visionary) (6-1) - He's finished fourth in both starts since coming off an eight month layoff in late May. Blinkers go on and trainer Mike Puype drops him in class.
4th pick: #8 (Zim n the Mailman) (15-1) - Longshot has had tough posts in all three starts and they all came facing better. Drops and think he'll factor from off the pace at a big price.
