2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
October 18, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #4
Saturday 10/18 02:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (WATDIFRENZDZITMAKE) (3-1) - She rallied to finish fourth here going 6-furlongs for a $40K tag Oct. 4. Solid effort and trainer Phil D'Amato brings her back quickly, drops her a bit, stretches her out, and removes her blinkers.
2nd pick: #1 (Gem of a Gal) (8-1) - Filly lost all chance here when she "bobbled" at the start going a mile Sept. 28. She's worked since, draws the rail, and veteran Art Sherman adds blinkers.
3rd pick: #7 (Misty Warrior) (4-1) - Another that "bobbled" last out and she raced evenly once in stride to finish a distant fourth here at this tag going 6-furlongs. Another that's being brought back on short notice and she's also going longer. In the mix.
4th pick: #5 (Zippinaroundtown) (9-2) - Owned/trained/and bred by Kristin Mulhall filly ran poorly here on Sept. 28 while almost three back of "Misty Warrior." She had finished in her previous pair and is yet another stretching out around two-turns. Don't just dismiss her.
