2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
March 30, 2013
SANTA ANITA Race #8 (THE ECHO EDDIE)
Saturday 03/30 04:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (COULD BE TROUBLE) (4-1) - She looked very sharp last out when wiring a field of "open" high-level starter-allowance foes here on March 15th. Not sure why trainer Pete Miller has her facing males as she probably could have won the "Evening Jewel" stakes earlier on this card for the same $200K purse. Still think she'll be tough to defeat if she can repeat her latest figure.
2nd pick: #9 (Omega Star) (7-2) - He was "in over his head" last out facing "open" company here in the "San Felipe" stakes (G2) and should find the move back with fellow Cal.-breds an agreeable one. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Indian Classic) (5-1) - Gelding has been sharp in both appearances and was a maiden winner here on March 1st in his first start since June 10th. Heavily bet in his return and he's worked fast since. In the win mix.
4th pick: #3 (Surfcup) (4-1) - He moves back to the dirt and shortens up in distance after a sharp win going a mile on the grass here on March 1st. In the Baffert barn, and this Dizney home-bred can factor with his best.
5th pick: #7 (Raised a Secret) (12-1) - Longshot hasn't run since he finished third in a $65K stakes at Emerald Down in late Sept. He has a new trainer (Mark Glatt 31% with new arrivals) and is working fast for his return. Price play.
