2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
February 08, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #5 (THE SAN ANTONIO (G2))
Saturday 02/08 02:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (GAME ON DUDE) (4-5) - The probable heavy favorite, "Dude" is nearing the $6,000,000 mark in earnings and has won 7-of-9 starts on this main-track. Working fast and when last in action he was a "head" back of the hard-hitting "Will Take Charge" at Churchill in the G1 "Clark" on Nov. 29. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #3 (Blueskiesnrainbows) (3-1) - He's in career best shape and won the "San Pasqual" (G2) on this course Jan. 11. Five-year-old has gone 9-3-3-2 overall on this surface, has a speed/stalking style, and is working fast.
3rd pick: #6 (Blingo) (6-1) - Lightly-raced gelding doesn't have any early speed, but almost always is making up ground late. May rally for a minor award.
4th pick: #4 (Majestic Harbor) (6-1) - Six-year-old runs second back off a long layoff and in his return start he finished second to "Blueskiesnrainbows." Working fine since and this former stakes winner is a threat with his best.
