2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
March 21, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #3
Friday 03/21 02:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (AUTUMN VIEW) (8-5) - The probable favorite, she's finished second in three of four on the grass and is 2-0-1-1 at this "down the hill" trip. Speed/stalker has just missed in her last pair and should get the job done in this spot.
2nd pick: #4 (Provenance) (3-1) - Dangerous filly is lightly raced, improving, and last out ran third of six here at this level and distance. It was her first race in almost 7 weeks and trainer Marty Jones has her working both fast and frequently.
3rd pick: #2 (Oughttobenaughty) (9-2) - Very lightly-raced filly has raced evenly in both starts and last out at Hollywood on Nov. 21 she finished a close up third at this level going 6-furlongs in a switched contest. Bred for the grass and must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #1 (Epistemology) (10-1) - Longshot coast $310K back in 2012 and is racing for the first time since late June. Daughter of "War Front" has shown early speed in both starts and is a pace factor if ready off the nine month layoff.
