November 22, 2014
DEL MAR Race #5
Saturday 11/22 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (MAHALO ARTURO) (7-2) - Colt has been freshened up since being placed first on Sept. 12 at Los Alamitos when getting his maiden win. Speed/stalker is working steadily and finished second here in late July.
2nd pick: #5 (Intaxication) (3-1) - He was a sharp maiden winner here for an $18K tag going 6-furlongs on Nov. 8. Lightly-raced and in a good barn (Pete Miller)he's brought back quickly and has room for upside.
3rd pick: #8 (Secret Command) (5-2) - The morning line favorite, he's been sharp in both local appearances 2-1-1-0. One-run type has been freshened up for almost three months, goes turf to "poly" and drops in class.
4th pick: #1 (Raise the Hoof) (12-1) - He has the rail, a bit of early speed, and is racing 3rd back from a 3 1/2 month layoff. Capable of grabbing a share at a big price.
