2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
August 31, 2014
DEL MAR Race #5 (THE TORREY PINES STAKES(G3))
Sunday 08/31 04:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (JOJO WARRIOR) (2-1) - Zayat home bred has been freshened up since winning the G2 "Summer Oaks" on the Santa Anita dirt June 21. Stalker won her debut here a year ago and is working fast locally for this attempt. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #1 (Delta Flower) (4-1) - A double stakes winner on conventional dirt, she has early speed and is working fast locally for her first ever on a synthetic surface. Has the rail, and she runs for a strong trainer (Hollendorfer)/jockey (Bejarano) combo.
3rd pick: #3 (Fashion Plate) (9-5) - After winning a pair of stakes during the winter meet at Santa Anita, filly was sent east where she performed poorly in a pair of G1 stakes. Freshened up since June 7, she's training fast and is a threat if she handles the "poly."
4th pick: #7 (More Complexity) (12-1) - Cheaper sort has won two in a row going shorter, the latest coming here on Aug. 8. That earned her a career best "figure," and she may grab a share at a big price.
