2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 12, 2014
LOS ALAMITOS RACE COURSE Race #3
Friday 12/12 01:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (REALLY A PRINCESS) (3-1) - She disappointed as the favorite last out at Santa Anita racing at this level. However, she broke poorly from an outside post and tired while racing wide after trying to play catch up. Filly was beaten a head in her previous start and a repeat of that wins this.
2nd pick: #1 (South Texas) (5-2) - She has some gate speed and is breaking from the rail in her second back off an 80-day layoff. Her best race in three starts came here on Sep 5th and she's win threat in this spot.
3rd pick: #7 (Gold Journey) (4-1) - She finished a strong second at this level at Santa Anita on Oct 30, then regressed three weeks later on the Del Mar "poly." The return to conventional dirt makes her a major player.
4th pick: #8 (Treasured Jewels) (6-1) - One of four fillies making their debuts and she's from an excellent first out barn (Craig Dollase 30%). Can factor if ready.
