2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks

TURF PARADISE Race #1
Monday 03/17 01:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (LU'S LALABYE) (5-2) - Filly goes turf to dirt, drops in class, and shortens up in distance. Speed/stalker is nicely spotted and has a fine local work showing six days ago.
2nd pick: #6 (Hot Little Thang) (4-1) - Filly is from the same barn (Mike Silva), and has finished second in five of seven starts here on the dirt. Speed/stalker has never raced this far before, but should be involved from start-to-finish.
3rd pick: #3 (Swiss Sugar) (7-2) - From the barn of leading trainer Bob Diodoro, filly ships in from Golden Gate Fields where she's been tiring racing on the "poly." Cal-bred ran well last fall on the Fairplex dirt, and Diodoro wins at a 25% clip with new arrivals.
4th pick: #1 (Peach Strings) (3-1) - She comes off a career best when rallying while wide to finish third here at this level and distance Feb. 24th. Fits and is a threat, but think she'll be over-bet.
