2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
April 27, 2014
SANTA ANITA Race #9
Sunday 04/27 05:15 PM Eastern
Top pick: #9 (WEST COAST STORM) (7-2) - Home-bred raced both wide & evenly when debuting here against tougher March 13. She's working nicely for her first in almost seven weeks, drops down a notch, and it's a plus to see Tyler Baze aboard on the re-ride.
2nd pick: #8 (My Wish Come True) (4-1) - She also raced wide and evenly when making her debut, and trainer Marty Jones wins at a 23% rate second time out. She's working steadily, and "hot riding" apprentice Drayden Van Dyke is back aloft.
3rd pick: #7 (Shared Image) (3-1) - Speedy filly has been freshened up since tiring in a pair facing tougher here earlier this year. Working well for this, and breeder/owner/trainer Rory Owens drops her down into a career soft spot. Win candidate.
4th pick: #6 (Cleverly Beverly) (5-2) - Longtime maiden has gone 7-0-2-1 racing on real dirt and will be cutting back in distance after running fourth here at this level going 8.5-furlongs April 13. She should factor in this weak field.
