2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 14, 2014
LOS ALAMITOS Race #9
Sunday 12/14 04:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (TAKEIT TOTHE LIMIT) (7-5) - The probable, speedy sort has finished second in four straight starts at this tag. The last pair were on the Del Mar "poly" with the previous two coming here in Sept. He meets a very weak field and is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #4 (Indian Monkey) (4-1) - He also has early speed, but has not raced since Jan. 1st. Gelding has finished second in three of his last four with all of those placings coming on conventional dirt. A threat if ready.
3rd pick: #5 (Cat One) (5-1) - Debuting gelding has some quick works on view and is from a capable small barn (Lin Melton). The presence of Tyler Baze indicates the barn likes this 3yo's chances.
4th pick: #2 (Hot as a Cat) (8-1) - Grey gelding has shown fine early speed in both career appearances. He breaks just off the rail and can be involved from gate-to-wire at a square price.
