2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
July 23, 2014
DEL MAR Race #2
Wednesday 07/23 02:35 PM Eastern
Top pick: #9 (SUSAN BE GOD) (3-1) - Lightly-raced filly comes off a career best when she finished second of 12 at this level and distance on the Santa Anita turf on June 29th. Stalker defeated a half-dozen fillies that are lined up against her that day and she's worked well since. The top pick.
2nd pick: #1 (Euroclydon) (5-1) - She finished third to "Susan" last out and had to be sent hard from an outside post at the break. Forced to set fast fractions, she held well until the final 1/16th. She moves from the 12-post to the rail and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Three Blondes) (9-2) - Mare rated just outside of "Euroclydon" last out and tired after making a final bid at the 1/4 pole. Speed/stalker has ability, is racing third back from a very long layoff, and Bejarano gets aboard this afternoon.
4th pick: #8 (Lethal Story) (15-1) - Longshot rallied while very wide in the same last race as the top three selections. She had a bad post, draws better today, and is a stretch threat at a big price.
5th pick: #10 (Jenny's V) (8-1) - Not a win candidate, but she's been competitive in all three grass starts and stalker may bet a minor award if she can avoid a wide journey.
