2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 20, 2014
LOS ALAMITOS RACE COURSE Race #4
Saturday 12/20 01:55 PM Eastern
Top pick: #8 (ROLO TAMACI) (2-1) - He's working nicely for his first since debuting this past March at Santa Anita. He showed good early speed that day racing on the grass and held to finish close up. He returns on real dirt and it's noted that Bejarano is aboard.
2nd pick: #4 (Siberian's Rule) (5-1) - Colt has shown fine early speed in both starts on the grass going longer. He's working fast locally for this and trainer Paul Aguirre shortens him up in distance and moves him from turf to dirt.
3rd pick: #6 (Fort Cady) (4-1) - Experienced maiden has a stalking style and has been competitive in two straight outings. He fits on figures and the surface and distance are fine. Stretch threat.
4th pick: #5 (Couldashouldadid) (8-1) - Longshot tired in his debut after rushing up following a slow start. Claimed that day for $50K trainer Tim Yakteen has him working sharply and gelding can impact at a square price.
