2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
November 13, 2014
DEL MAR Race #8
Thursday 11/13 04:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (TRUE VISIONARY) (7-2) - Grey gelding enters off a career best when he pressed the pace and held gamely to finish second at Santa Anita Oct. 13 when racing for twice this tag. Working nicely since and he gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #3 (Vavoom) (4-1) - Speedy sort has improved noticeably in his last pair and just mussed at Santa Anita at this tag on Oct. 5. A win candidate and he should be involved every step.
3rd pick: #4 (Storm the Channel) (3-1) - Gelding takes a big drop in class and is switching from five straight on the grass to a synthetic surface. His figures fit with these and he's a major player if he handles the new footing.
4th pick: #10 (Burning) (5-1) - He's dropping in class after a poor effort on Oct. 13 at Santa Anita. Gelding by "Candy Ride" was eight back of "True Visionary" that afternoon but had finished close up seconds in his previous pair.
5th pick: #13 (Canopus) (12-1) - Not a strong win candidate, blinkers go on in an attempt to get him involved a bit earlier. His post is of no help and he'll need a fast and/or contested pace for any shot at the win.
