2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks

August 21, 2014


DEL MAR Race #4

Thursday 08/21 03:35 PM Eastern

Top pick: #5 (COUNTING DAYS) (5-2) - He moves up a bit in class after just missing here at this mile trip for a $16K tag July 24th. It was his first start in three months and ran his record on synthetic tracks to 4-1-1-1. The top pick.

2nd pick: #1 (Run Hide) (4-1) - He races first back off a re-claim by Vlad Cerin after losing him for one race. He ran a solid third when sprinting at this tag that afternoon and Cerin will be stretching him out in distance in his third back from almost a 10-month layoff. Win candidate.

3rd pick: #7 (Volkonsky) (3-1) - No-speed type is racing first off a Ted West claim after finishing second here at this $25k tag the day he was taken. That was his first ever on a synthetic surface and it's nice to see Bejarano back on the re-ride.

4th pick: #3 (Jacksom Sundown) (10-1) - Longshot has been racing evenly facing a bit tougher and will be taking a much needed drop in class for this attempt. May grab a share at a nice price.
