2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
October 10, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #1
Friday 10/10 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (PLAZARITA) (7-2) - Veteran mare has finished second in two straight at this level, the latest a narrow loss at Los Alamitos on Sept. 13. Back in form following a pair off layoffs and there's plenty of speed signed on to help her stalking style out.
2nd pick: #4 (Silk in Silver) (8-5) - Speed/stalker was a winner at Del mar for an $8000 tag Aug. 27. Claimed that day by Kristin Mulhall, she has her working fast, switches her to real dirt, and has Bejarano aboard. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Sydney's Darling) (7-2) - Stretch-out sprinter has won here in the past going two-turns and has some back class to call upon. Mare is dangerous from close range as she drops to a new low.
4th pick: #6 (Putahexonher) (3-1) - Lightly-raced 4-year-old drops off a troubled trip on Sept. 6 at Los Alamitos. She broke her maiden here and is capable of impacting with a clean trip.
