2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
October 28, 2013
TURF PARADISE Race #4
Monday 10/28 02:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (BUDDING AFFAIR) (3-1) - He's been freshened up since late June, and has a new trainer (Val Brinkerhoff) for his local debut. New barn drops him to a new low, adds blinkers, and has him running on conventional dirt for the first time. Gelding is the horse to beat if ready.
2nd pick: #7 (Mr. Oopha) (6-1) - Lightly raced and in a winning barn, gelding is improving, and comes off a career best here when finishing third on Oct. 14th. Owner/trainer Justin Evans brings him back quickly, and 3yo can contend at a square price.
3rd pick: #1a (Go to Guy) (4-1) - He has some early speed, and ran third here after chasing the pace on Oct. 16th. Washington-bred by "Katowice" should be involved from start-to-finish.
4th pick: #2 (M Smart) (5-1) - Unraced since mid-August, gelding has some talent, and finished second going a mile at Arapahoe Park on July 20. Owner/trainer Deb O'Brien drops him to a new low, and he can factor with his best.
