2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
October 11, 2013
SANTA ANITA Race #8
Friday 10/11 04:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #2 (MUM'S TRUCKEE) (7-2) - The probable favorite, she stretches out off a pair of fine efforts at this level going shorter and she's run well at this trip in the past. Stalker is lightly raced, talented, and gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #3 (The Only Key) (9-2) - Veteran moves back to the turf after a poor effort at this level on the Fairplex dirt Sept. 15. Mare likes this surface, has blinkers added, and is one of three entered who has won at this distance in the past.
3rd pick: #8 (Somethingabouther) (8-1) - Daughter of "War Front" is working nicely for her first race since late August. Stakes placed filly fits on "figures" and the level and distance are fine.
4th pick: #4 (Marcyjane) (6-1) - She's won two in a row and moves up in class for this attempt. Strong finisher should love this distance, which she's attempting for the first time.
5th pick: #1 (Level Headed) (4-1) - Very lightly raced home-bred ships from Chicago where she made up some ground in a grass sprint on Aug 8th in her first start since late Nov. Dangerous if ready on the stretch-out.
