2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
June 23, 2014
PRESQUE ISLE DOWNS Race #8
Monday 06/23 05:20 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (HOPEHARD) (3-1) - Lightly raced gelding drops in class and goes turf to "poly" in his second back from a 8 1/2 month layoff. 3yo by "Dunkirk" draws a nice outside post and ran evenly in his return grass sprint at Pimlico. Gets the call.
2nd pick: #1 (Tangointhesnow) (6-1) - He chased and weakened here at this tag going five-furlongs on June 5 in his first since mid-Sept. Speed/stalker has worked well since and can factor tonight with normal second back improvement.
3rd pick: #5 (Guy On the Go) (4-1) - Grey gelding has finished close in in his last pair here facing better. Onwner/trainer Wayne Rice drops him to a new low, and this 6yo should be competitive against this field. Win candidate.
4th pick: #4 (Tappintothemusic) (5-1) - Well-bred gelding has been sub-par in his last pair and will need to get back on track for anything more than a minor award.
