2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 30, 2014
TURF PARADISE Race #1
Tuesday 12/30 11:55 AM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (MILITARY MOTHER) (4-1) - Veteran mare moves from turf to dirt after a solid third-place finish at this tag on the local lawn Nov. 30. It was her first back from a 3 1/2 month break and has worked fast twice since. She's won seven times on the dirt and I like her chances.
2nd pick: #4 (Pretty Witty) (2-1) - Speedy mare has had a solid year 13-3-5-1 and is racing first off a Dale Greenwood claim. Well bred 5-year-old has an outstanding record on the dirt at this distance 7-3-4-0 and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #3 (Le Fascinator) (5-1) - She's making her first start ever on conventional dirt. Filly has beaten much tougher on the grass and last out was only 2 1/2 back of "Military Mother" on the local infield. Can factor if she handles the new surface.
4th pick: #5 (Lostinthemoment) (7-2) - Very consistent mare has gone 25-9-7-2 over the past two years. Freshened up since mid-October, mare likes it here 11-6-3-1 and runs at her favorite distance 12-5-5-0. Must be left in the mix.
