2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
January 25, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #2
Saturday 01/25 12:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (TURN ON THE PUMPS) (6-1) - Price play has been freshened up for almost two months and has been working steadily for his return. Stalker breaks from the rail and has been competitive at this level several times in the past.
2nd pick: #8 (Volkonsky) (7-2) - Lightly-raced gelding was purchased privately by trainer Jerry Hollendorfer sometime in the past month and this gelding has a very sharp half-mile work on Jan. 22. Fits at the level and so far he's gone 7-1-2-2 when racing on the grass.
3rd pick: #2 (Woodmans Luck) (7-2) - Strong finisher rallied from far back into a hot pace to win at Hollywood on Dec. 22 facing "open" mid-level starter-allowance foes. Score came in his third back from a year's layoff and he would love a fast and/or contested pace to develop.
4th pick: #3 (Christopher Street) (8-1) - He also defeated "open" company at Hollywood last out when he rallied late to win by a "head" there Dec. 21 racing for a $50K tag. Working fast since and must be left in the mix.
