2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
June 22, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #4
Sunday 06/22 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (SPIRIT OF TEN) (2-1) - She hasn't seen action since early Nov., but showed ability at that time facing slightly better. Filly is working fast locally, drops a bit in class, and a bullet half-mile local gate breeze on June 15 suggests her readiness.
2nd pick: #5 (Nikki Allyn) (7-5) - The probable favorite, she takes a big drop in class, and is going turf to dirt. Trainer Pete Miller has been hot here the past week, and this daughter of "Bernstein" is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Giddy Up Cowgirl) (4-1) - Home-bred has been away since tiring in her debut at Hollywood Park 13 months ago. Working nicely, she's in a capable small barn (Dan Blacker), and he adds blinkers.
4th pick: #7 (La Brisa) (6-1) - She's another that's shown early speed and is also taking a big drop in class. Filly draws a tough outside post at this five-furlong trip, and will need to be sent hard from the gate.
