2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 29, 2014
TURF PARADISE Race #1
Monday 12/29 11:25 AM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (BENCH RULING) (3-1) - Filly is one of two entered by trainer Eric Kruljac and the pair race uncoupled. Speedy and well bred, she's racing second back from a three month break. Daughter of "Successful Appeal" is stretching out in distance and moving back in with her own sex. She chased and tired last out and looks all set for her first try around two-turns.
2nd pick: #1 (Garnisheed Wages) (8-5) - The second of the Kruljac fillies, she's been competitive in four grass starts at this meet and will be racing on the dirt for the first time. Daughter of "Scat Daddy" has trained fast on the dirt and is an obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Weekend Winger) (9-2) - Improving filly enters off a career best when she rallied to finish second here at this level on the grass Dec. 8. She's raced evenly in her last pair on the dirt and must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #4 (Love Cautiously) (6-1) - Very lightly-raced, filly has some speed and last out on Oct. 31 when was just under two lengths back of "Garnisheed Wages" in a local grass contest. May grab a minor award if she handles the dirt.
