2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
July 31, 2013
DEL MAR Race #3
Wednesday 07/31 03:10 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (SPRING UP) (5-2) - Lightly-raced and speedy, colt was an impressive maiden winner here going 6 furlongs for a $20K tag on July 17th. The race was his first since April 6th and he was claimed out of his recent score by John Sadler. New trainer wins at a 24% rate first off the claim and brings him back on short notice.
2nd pick: #2 (Solid South) (7-2) - One of two entered by trainer Marty Jones and both are contenders. Strong finisher was compromised by a very slow pace when running third last out at this level and should get a more favorable pace set-up this afternoon.
3rd pick: #7 (Magnum Force) (4-1) - The second of the Jones pair, he broke his maiden at Hollywood two back, then raced evenly last out after a troubled start. Fits and improving 4-year-old can factor with his best.
4th pick: #6 (Awesome Address) (4-1) - Gelding has been freshened up since breaking his maiden at Hollywood on June 30th. Working well since and he has more early speed than most.
