2013-EAST-COAST Season Horse Racing Past Picks
April 15, 2013
Turf Paradise Race #5
Monday 04/15 02:55 PM Eastern
Top pick: #1 (THREE BUTTONS DOWN) (5-2) - Speedy and lightly raced, 5yo gelding draws the rail and trainer Dan McFarland will drop him down to a new low in price. He'll be tough to beat from either on or just off the pace.
2nd pick: #2 (You Make Me Blue) (2-1) - Another that's stretching out, but unlike "Buttons" he's been around two turns in the past. Fits, is in shape, and stalker should be involved from start-to-finish.
3rd pick: #3 (Higgs) (9-2) - Gelding raced poorly last out in a 6.5 furlong sprint, but in his previous start he finished 3rd at this level and distance. One of two entered that has won at this trip in the past and he'll be a square price.
4th pick: #7 (Pelican Hill) (4-1) - 5yo finished 3rd of 7, beaten two lenghts racing here at this level and distance on April 1st in a solid effort. Can factor right back with a repeat of that performance.
