2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
July 26, 2013
DEL MAR Race #3
Friday 07/26 05:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (SALT POWER) (2-1) - Speedy gelding has tired in his first pair facing tougher and trainer Vann Belvoir will drop him into a claimer for the first time. Day gelding by "Salt lake" is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #1 (Short Sword) (3-1) - One of four making their debuts, home-bred is in the barn of Mike Mitchell who has started off hot at this meet. Two of his works indicate speed is present and he breaks from the rail.
3rd pick: #3 (Z Z Way) (10-1) - Home-bred by "Aragorn" is in a barn (Janet Armstrong) that's better than its record and this gelding has been training steadily since mid-May. Can threaten at a nice price.
4th pick: #7 (Black Tie) (8-1) - He drops down a bit after an even effort following a slow start when debuting at Hollywood on July 4th. He's worked twice since and normal second out improvement can have him competitive.
