2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
November 20, 2014
DEL MAR Race #2
Thursday 11/20 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (HERE'S BELLA) (3-1) - She's finished second in both starts since dropping down to this $20K tag. She was competitive in one of two here during the summer when facing tougher and gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #3 (Hollywood Royalty) (9-2) - Stalker improved in her second start when she finished an even fourth while 4 1/2 lengths back of "Bella." She's taken betting action in both appearances and had a sharp 1/2 mile breeze on Nov. 9. A major factor if filly handles the "poly" surface.
3rd pick: #2 (Alice Roadtrain) (6-1) - Speedy sort hasn't raced since early April. Daughter of "Tribal Rule" tired badly that day but had finished a pacesetting second in her previous effort. Training well and a threat if ready.
4th pick: #1 (Ski's Copper Penny) (8-1) - Price play raced evenly from a tough inside post in a large field (12) at Santa Anita Oct. 13. She was racing for the first time since April 11th and probably needed the effort. May factor at a square price.
