2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
January 27, 2013
SANTA ANITA Race #1
Sunday 01/27 12:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (BLACK WITCH) (6-5) - The first of many heavy favorites on today's card has finished 2nd in both her starts and did so on this surface and distance on Jan 4th. She's worked fast twice since and this Baffert trained filly is the choice to break her maiden.
2nd pick: #1 (Temptress) (6-1) - Price play showed good early speed before tiring when debuting in a sprint at this level on Nov 4th. $190K daughter of "Tapit" is training both steadily and above average for Steve Asmussen and think she'll run well at a square price.
3rd pick: #5 (Iconic Spirit) (5-2) - One of two fillies enterd by trainer John Sadler and she comes into this stretch out attempt off a rallying 3rd place finish here going 7 furlongs on Jan 12th. Late threat.
4th pick: #2 (Lady Asano) (15-1) - The 2nd of the Sadler pair, she races first off a claim (a strong 33% winning angle by the barn)and he's freshened her up for the past two months. Could grab a share at a big price.
