2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
August 31, 2014
DEL MAR Race #9 (THE DEL MAR DERBY (G2))
Sunday 08/31 06:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (ENTERPRISING) (2-1) - Strong finisher has won five of six starts on the grass and has won back-to-back turf stakes at this meet. In career best shape, and this 1 1/8th distance is not a problem.
2nd pick: #6 (Aventador) (8-1) - One of three French imports entered, he's by far the most experienced member of this field (16-2-4-2), and earlier this year he held his own against some top company in his native country.
3rd pick: #1 (Home Run Kitten) (5-1) - Another strong finisher, he's been on the sidelines since winning a small stakes on the Santa Anita turf June 21. Steady performer is an off the pace threat with his best.
4th pick: #2 (Sawyer's Hill) (8-1) - He has more early speed than most, and has won three of four on the grass including two in a row at this meet. Think he'll be involved from start-to-finish at a square price.
