2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 12, 2014
LOS ALAMITOS RACE COURSE Race #1
Friday 12/12 12:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #2 (ABETS ABET) (2-1) - The field's most experienced maiden enters off a career best when beaten a "head" at this level on the Del Mar "poly" Nov. 20. Stretch runner has done well on conventional before and meets a rather weak looking group on paper. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #1 (Maid Esay) (6-1) - She's one of two making their debuts and this filly is bred for speed. Working fast locally, she draws the rail and is a win candidate if ready.
3rd pick: #4 (Racing Hope) (3-1) - She's been freshened up since mid-October after a pair of non-competitive starts facing tougher. Training well for her return, filly's connections drop her in class and remove her blinkers.
4th pick: #5 (Mariska No More) (8-1) - Filly has displayed good early speed before tiring in all four appearances. Freshened up since early October, she has a shot at going all the way at juicy odds if allowed to get an uncontested lead in the first quarter-mile.
