2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
May 24, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #1
Saturday 05/24 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (HAMILTONIAN) (2-1) - Gelding has been freshened up since a troubled break and even effort at Turf Paradise April 14th. Stalker drops way down in class, has a new trainer (Bob Diodoro), and 5-year-old by "Bellamy Road" has some sharp works on view.
2nd pick: #6 (Xuang Feng) (7-5) - Lightly-raced gelding by "Speightstown" moves up in class following an easy win here racing for an $8000 tag on May 4th. He has some back class and is more than capable with a repeat of his latest figure.
3rd pick: #1 (Close to the Edge) (3-1) - Veteran has won more races (7) than any other in today's opener and has gone 12-3-2-0 on this course when facing tougher in the past. Seven-year-old has the rail, and drops to a price-tag that he's been successful at before. Must be left in the small win mix.
