2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks

November 21, 2014


DEL MAR Race #8

Friday 11/21 04:00 PM Eastern

Top pick: #8 (THESHEETSGUY) (2-1) - He enters off a career best when he missed by a "head" at this tag and trip on the Santa Anita dirt Nov. 2. One run type has all the speed to his left in the gate and can win this turning for home.

2nd pick: #4 (Broadcaster) (12-1) - Irish bred gelding had some traffic issues last out when finishing a distant third at this tag on Oct. 12 at Santa Anita. He had finished second in his previous race on the Golden Gate "Tapeta" and has a shot at a square price.

3rd pick: #1 (Brackendale) (15-1) - Very fast from the gate he's dropping in class, draws the rail, and is trying a synthetic surface for the first time. His early speed and the inside post makes him a "live" longshot.

4th pick: #5 (Cernobbio) (6-1) - Dizney home bred just missed at Santa Anita at this tag on Oct. 19. A career best it came in his second back from a 7-week freshening and he's a threat if he can repeat it on this "poly" surface.

5th pick: #6 (Play Maker) (8-1) - Gelding enters in shape but he appears to have a bit of "hang" in him at crunch time. Can grab a share, but needs to do better for any shot at the win.
