2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
January 26, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #3
Sunday 01/26 01:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (EXCLUDE) (2-1) - He's the "class" of a weak field, and is working very fast on this surface for his first start since Nov. 22nd. $550K son of "Tiznow" drops to a new low in price, and he should beat this group.
2nd pick: #1 (Murmansk) (7-2) - Debuting 4yo gelding by "Northern Afleet" is working steadily and above average on this surface, and draws the rail. With an alert break, he should contend, and he need not be much to factor against this crew.
3rd pick: #4 (Alsace) (9-2) - This is start #13, and so far he's finished second in two of his twelve outings. Gelding by "Salt Lake" ran third here at this tag & trip on Jan. 1st, and a repeat of that effort should land him a share.
4th pick: #3 (Copote's Royalty) (8-1) - Lightly raced home-bred ran evenly at this tag & distance at Hollywood on Nov. 30th, and has been on the sidelines since. He has a new trainer (Oscar Garcia), is working nicely, and has blinkers on today.
