2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 28, 2013
SANTA ANITA Race #9
Saturday 12/28 04:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #11 (EXOTIC BEHAVIOR) (2-1) - She's disappointed a number of times, but has finished third in three straight when facing tougher and will be dropping to a new low in price. In the Baffert barn, draws well, and is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #5 (Miraculous Mindy) (6-1) - She's rallied to finish third in her first pair on the Hollywood "poly" and will be racing on her home base today. Drops, has good early speed, and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Red Barris) (9-2) - She's finished second in two of three and will be racing fresh off a Steve Knapp claim. Speedy sort has Bejarano aboard and is in the three-horse win mix.
4th pick: #13 (Yesterday Sings) (8-1) - On the also-eligible list, she needs one scratch in the main body to get in. Filly was away slowly in her debuut and raced evenly once in stride. Drops slightly, moves to real dirt, draws well, and Talamo is back on the re-ride.
5th pick: #10 (She's Flush) (8-1) - Nibbler has finished second in both local starts and her flexible style is a plus. Must be left in the mix at a square price.
