2014-WEST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
January 13, 2014
TURF PARADISE Race #3
Monday 01/13 12:10 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (GENERAL HUSTON) (5-2) - Lightly raced and improving, he pressed the pace while racing between horses last out, and held gamely to finish fourth of eight, beaten almost three lengths racing here at this level. That was a career best, and he earned the highest "figure" of any that have run. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #3 (Denton) (3-1) - He drops down again, and in his two previous races at this $5000 tag, he'd finished third and was only beaten a "neck" in one. Stalker is an obvious threat and should enjoy this 6.5-furlong trip.
3rd pick: #1 (Plain Buck) (6-1) - Price play is from a winning barn (Manny Ortiz), draws the rail, and comes off a very wide trip after breaking from an outside post.
4th pick: #6 (Slew Dee Slew) (4-1) - He raced evenly while wide last out, and believe the extra furlong he runs at today is in his favor.
