2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
October 06, 2014
MOUNTAINEER PARK Race #3
Monday 10/06 04:50 PM Eastern
Top pick: #2 (TEXAS TOWN) (2-1) - Gelding is taking a big drop in class and is racing for the first time since late Feb. New York bred has a new trainer (Al Dodge) and a fine recent work at Baltera Park. 3yo by "Cowboy Cal" has the rail, early speed, and he meets a weak field. Takes this if ready.
2nd pick: #3 (Builtforgirls) (8-1) - Barn (Russell Randall) comes off an excellent meet at Presque Isle Downs and did well in the maiden category. This grey gelding by "Rubiyat" had a sharp half-mile gate breeze here Sept. 16 and looks ready to factor first out.
3rd pick: #9 (Ninety Grand) (5-2) - Long time maiden finished a pace-pressing third here on Sept. 16. It was his first at Mountaineer and first at this $5000 price tag. 5yo by "Birdstone" should factor again this evening.
4th pick: #6 (Mayhem Man) (6-1) - He's yet to finish "in the money" in thirteen lifetime starts, but does have some early speed and may hang on for a minor award.
