2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
August 11, 2014
PRESQUE ISLE DOWNS Race #2
Monday 08/11 02:50 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (JADE MASTER) (9-5) - The probable favorite, if you take away his three sub-par grass starts, his record is 10-7-2-0 racing on dirt and synthetic surfaces. Stalker was a winner here at this level and distance July 27, and owner/trainer Arcadio Lopez brings him back quickly for this attempt. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #5 (See I A) (3-1) - Hard-hitting veteran has visited the winner's circle 23 times in 57 starts and has gone 8-3-3-1 here at Presque Isle Downs. Speed/stalker has beaten tougher in the past and is an obvious threat in this spot.
3rd pick: #4 (Tiree) (2-1) - He was only a "neck" back of "Jade Master" last out and earned his highest "figure" since July of 2013. Grey gelding does his best work locally (11-4-2-3), and a repeat of his latest effort makes him a strong factor.
4th pick: #3 (Power Blast) (8-1) - No speed type raced evenly from the rail last out and was soundly beaten by both "Jade Master" & "Tiree." He may grab a minor award if the pace is fast and/or contested.
