2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 19, 2014
LOS ALAMITOS RACE COURSE Race #1
Friday 12/19 12:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (ANN'S GOLD) (7-5) - Long time maiden finished an even fourth here at this tag and trip on Dec. 5. She had a tough outside post and also "bobbled" at the break. Filly meets a weak field and moves to the rail. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #5 (Katy's Plum) (9-2) - Filly rallied from far back to finish third here in the same Dec. 5 contest as "Ann's Gold." She was 1 1/2 lengths better than that rival and was racing off almost a 100-day layoff. Contends today.
3rd pick: #2 (Warren's Goldennugget) (5-2) - Warren home bred raced both wide and evenly on the Del Mar grass facing tougher on Nov. 21. It was her first in four months and she probably needed the effort. Barn drops her down, switches her back to the dirt, and removes her blinkers.
