2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
October 23, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #5
Thursday 10/23 03:10 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (NORTH OF OSWEGO) (6-1) - Lightly raced colt has been freshened up since a wide & even effort sprinting on the Los Alamitos dirt Sep 5. Working well for this and he's by a grass champ in "Leroidesanimaux". Can take this at a square price.
2nd pick: #5 (Willing to Travel) (2-1) - The morning line favorite, he raced evenly while checking in 5th of 10, beaten five lengths racing here at this level going "down the hill" Oct 10th. It was his first since coming west from Arlington Park and first for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. Bejarano stays aboard and this colt is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #4 (Film Freak) (8-1) - Home bred has raced evenly while not involved in a pair of sprints to begin his career. Longshot is working fast for this as trainer Tom Proctor stretches him out in distance and switches him to the grass. Price play.
4th pick: #1 (Miltee ) (5-2) - No speed type rallied to finish 3rd here at this level going a mile Sep 27. Colt should love this longer distance and son of "Arch" must be left in the mix.
