2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks

November 08, 2014


DEL MAR Race #2

Saturday 11/08 12:30 PM Eastern

Top pick: #6 (HOLIDAY MAKER) (2-1) - Filly just missed after a slow break when racing for a $25K tag at Santa Anita Oct. 23. Claimed that day by Julio Canani, he brings him back quickly, moves him up in class, and she had a fast half-mile breeze six days ago. The horse to beat.

2nd pick: #2 (Grand Yodeler) (7-2) - Very fast from the gate, filly went wire-to-wire when debuting here in late July. She tired next out in a $150K stakes a moth later and has been freshened up for the past 70 days. Drops for this and is a threat on the front end.

3rd pick: #1 (Racing for Chasen) (6-1) - Price play has proven that she can pass other horses in a field where several will be backing up turning for home. Abrams home bred has the rail, likes it here 3-1-1-1, and is a stretch threat.

4th pick: #4 (Do the Danse) (4-1) - In the Hollendorfer barn, he drops her in class for her first since Sept. 20. She won her first pair then regressed a bit when facing tougher in two starts since then. Fits with her best, this will be her first on a synthetic surface.
