2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
March 28, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #2
Friday 03/28 01:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (COUSIN RICKY) (3-1) - He's lightly-raced and has been freshened up since a sharp maiden win here on Feb. 6. Nicely spotted and a repeat of the "figure" earned in his win can take another.
2nd pick: #5 (Image of Joplin) (6-1) - Gelding tired facing tougher here on Feb. 27 in his first off a Steve Miyadi claim. Drops back down and he had a very fast 45-furlong work here on March 18.
3rd pick: #1 (Takem by Surprise) (5-1) - Speed/stalker has the rail and will drop slightly in price for this attempt. He ran second at this tag two back and should be involved every step.
4th pick: #3 (Still Unbroken) (5-2) - Fla.-bred is in the same barn (Steve Miyadi) as "Joplin" and will be cutting back in distance after missing by a neck here at this tag going two-turns Feb. 28. In the mix.
