2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
July 25, 2014
DEL MAR Race #7 (THE COUGAR II HANDICAP (G3))
Friday 07/25 07:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (SKY KINGDOM) (5-2) - He's really put it together of late and has run well at this 1 1/2 mile trip in the past. The surface is not an issues, he's working fast, and is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #9 (Soi Phet) (9-2) - Well bred veteran has become a different animal since being claimed by Len Powell in May of 2013. Gelding has won six times since then and is a perfect three for three locally. Speed/stalker should be involved from start-to-finish and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Longview Drive) (8-1) - Steady performer from the Hollendorfer barn, he rallied to win a nine-furlong stakes last out at Pleasanton and has run well on "poly" in the past without winning (8-0-2-4). Stretch threat.
4th pick: #7 (Bailoutbobby) (15-1) - Longshot has no early speed, but is the type that can "run all day." Capable with his best, and he could grab a slice at a big price.
