2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
June 28, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #6 (THE TRIPLE BEND STAKES (G1))
Saturday 06/28 03:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (CYCLOMETER) (3-1) - He comes off a sharp effort here on May 26 when he won the G3 "Los Angeles" stakes going six-furlongs. Veteran has a speed/stalking style and draws a nice outside post at this seven-furlong distance. Gets a slight edge in a strong field.
2nd pick: #7 (Wine Police) (9-2) - He set a pressured pace in the same May 26 race won by "Cyclometer" and held gamely to finish second. At one time in his career he would have been hard to beat against this type, and he appears to be headed in the right direction again.
3rd pick: #4 (Sahara Sky) (8-5) - Veteran has been freshened up since a wide and non-threatening effort at Churchill Downs on May 3 in a G2 stakes. He loves this main track (8-5-2-0) and has gone 8-3-3-1 at this distance in the past. Win candidate from off the pace at a short price.
4th pick: #1 (Declassify) (5-2) - Lightly raced and speedy, he has the rail, and will be sent hard at the start and take them as far as he can. In the Baffert barn, and this colt had hit triple digit "figures" in three of his four appearances.
