2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
December 18, 2013
TURF PARADISE Race #10
Wednesday 12/18 03:25 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (MAZZY) (4-1) - She missed by a "neck" here at this level Nov. 25, but tired in her latest when sent hard at the break and involved in speed-duel. Filly draws outside of the other pace and at this 6.5-furlong distance, that's a big plus.
2nd pick: #3 (Simply Secret) (2-1) - The probable favorite, she enters off a career best "figure" when she ran second here at this leval going a mile on Dec. 9. That was her first locally and first for trainer Angel Silva. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #4 (Naughtical) (8-1) - English-bred is racing back into shape after returning from almost a 5 month break in late Oct. Fits, has speed/stalking ability, and is a nice price play.
4th pick: #2 (Thisbe) (5-1) - Very lightly-raced Cal.-bred finished a distant second here at this level and distance Dec. 1. Race was her first ever on the dirt and first for trainer Jared Brown. Must be left in the mix.
