2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
January 12, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #1
Sunday 01/12 12:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (TRELAWNY) (2-1) - He's racing second off a Jeff Mullins claim, and he drops him back to the purchase price and stretches him out in distance. He looks like the main speed, but is capable of stalking. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #1 (Polytechnicien) (5-2) - Lightly raced 8yo has never been able to repeat the form he showed when racing in France back in 2011, but will be dropping to a new low and racing with blinkers on from the inside post. Working fast for this, and a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #3 (Yomybato) (4-1) - He goes "poly" to turf in his first off a private purchase by owner/trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. Very strong finisher enters off his best race in 18 months, and he would love a fast and/or contested pace to develop.
