2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 13, 2014
LOS ALAMITOS RACE COURSE Race #8 (THE STARLET STAKES (G1))
Saturday 12/13 04:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (FEATHERED) (5-2) - Daughter of "Indian Charlie" comes off a fine effort at Santa Anita in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) on Nov. 1. She had some problems at the break and recovered to miss by a length to today's rival "Take Charge Brandi." Believe she has the best chance at upsetting that filly this afternoon.
2nd pick: #6 (Take Charge Brandi) (8-5) - She was the surprise gate-to-wire winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) at odds of 67-1 Nov. 1 at Santa Anita. She followed that up with a win in the G3 "Delta Princess" at Delta Downs three weeks later at odds of 2-1. An obvious win candidate and the probable favorite.
3rd pick: #5 (Majestic Presence) (8-1) - She had a very wide trip Nov. 1 at Santa Anita but came back to finish third to "Brandi" at Delta Downs on Nov. 22. Filly had a tough outside post in her latest and was only 2 1/2 back of that rival. Contends this afternoon at a square price.
4th pick: #2 (Don't Blame Me) (12-1) - Longshot has been competitive in four straight and has fine early speed. May grab a share at a big price from on or just off the pace.
