2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
March 23, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #1
Sunday 03/23 12:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (PARTY TIME) (7-5) - $330K yearling missed by a "neck" last out in a dramatic four-horse photo. Speedy sort moves off the rail, and son of "Pulpit" looks set in what looks like a two-horse race on paper.
2nd pick: #1 (Rprettyboyfloyd) (6-5) - Promising runner was beaten a "nose" last out in the same March 7 contest that saw "Party Time" miss by a "neck." Has the rail and he's finished second in all three starts on this course when facing fellow maidens. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Lord Lochinvar) (8-1) - Longshot showed little when debuting here at this level going 7-furlongs on Feb. 15th. Son of "A.P.Indy" has been working fast since and should improve going around two-turns.
4th pick: #4 (Matt the Hammer) (8-1) - Lightly raced, he set/pressed a fast pace and tired late to finish fourth facing $50K foes on Feb. 21st. Working fast since, he may grab a share at a square price.
