December 30, 2014
TURF PARADISE Race #3
Tuesday 12/30 12:50 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (DIVE DOWN) (3-1) - Lightly-raced and speedy, trainer Eric Kruljac will stretch this gelding by "Broken Vow" out around two-turns for the first time. Three-year-old has been sharp in three straight sprints and will be tough on the front end.
2nd pick: #5 (Brother Wesley) (8-1) - Longshot is in career best form and is moving from turf to dirt for this attempt. He ran well earlier this year on the dirt and can factor today at a square price.
3rd pick: #3 (Finally Diamonds) (4-1) - Very lightly-raced, he's stretching out in distance after finishing second here at this level going 6-furlongs on Dec. 16. It was a career best and came off a 2 1/2 month break. Win candidate.
4th pick: #7 (Canopus) (4-1) - Well bred grey gelding ran a career best when finishing second here at this level on the turf on Dec. 9. Three-year-old by "Mizzen Mast" was making his local debut and is a threat from off the pace.
