October 21, 2014
MOUNTAINEER PARK Race #2
Tuesday 10/21 04:25 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (ODOM) (3-1) - Very strong finisher has gone 5-1-3-1 here at this tag dating back to late August. Gelding by "Pulpit" doesn't need a fast pace to be competitive and he can win this with a late kick turning for home.
2nd pick: #9 (Tax Man Sam) (5-1) - Stretch out sprinter was a winner here at this tag going 6-furlongs Oct. 4 and he's won at this longer distance in the past. In a high percentage barn (Josh Faulkner) and it's a plus to see Pilares back on the re-ride.
3rd pick: #3 (Twining Hearts) (5-2) - Gelding enters in career best form and he was an impressive 9-length winner here at this trip facing slightly weaker Oct. 8. In his previous start he finished 2nd to "Odom" and must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #1 (Stereo in Motion) (10-1) - He has sharp speed and is moving from an outside post to the rail. Nicely bred 5-year-old has gone 4-1-1-1 since coming from Indiana and his early speed in this rather paceless field is a plus.
