2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
May 12, 2014
PRESQUE ISLE DOWNS Race #3
Monday 05/12 02:20 PM Eastern
Top pick: #9 (RAPID DAN) (5-2) - Gelding has taken some money in all four starts and enters off a career best at Penn National when he rallied to finish second there on Feb. 1st. Working well leading into this, he draws a nice outside post at this distance, and gets the call.
2nd pick: #1 (Mr. Freud) (7-2) - Debuting colt has some very sharp works on view at both the Ocala Training Center and at Keeneland. 4yo drilled six-furlongs from the gate in Lexington April 26, and that's a big time number.
3rd pick: #6 (Dude About Town) (3-1) - One of two entered by trainer Teresa Connelly, and the pair race uncoupled. Gelding ran evenly when debuting at Tampa Bay Downs on April 19 and worked a solid local half-mile on April 30. Can factor in this spot.
4th pick: #4 (Tampa Bay Blue) (8-1) - The second of the Connelly pair, grey gelding showed good early speed before weakening on the Tampa turf when debuting March 28. 3yo has worked sharply on this surface since shipping north and can impact at a square price.
