TURF PARADISE Race #5
Wednesday 12/04 01:35 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (UNION WORKER) (5-2) - Zia Park invader enters off a win there at this distance on Nov. 5 to clear the 2l condition. He's from a high-percentage barn (Justin Evans) and this well-bred 5-year-old can make his local debut a winning one.
2nd pick: #4 (Unusual Mystery) (5-1) - Stretch out sprinter was a winner here two back going 6-furlongs to get his second win, then raced evenly to run third at this 3l condition in his latest. His form is improving and gelding had a very sharp half-mile breeze eight days ago.
3rd pick: #5 (Guns and Religion) (4-1) - Another sprinter that's stretching out and this veteran has done well without winning at this trip in the past (9-0-4-2). In shape, has back class, and is in the win mix.
4th pick: #6 (Prohibiting) (12-1) - Longshot runs third back off a 2 1/2 month layoff and yet another that's stretching out. He's raced wide and evenly in his return pair going shorter and could grab a share at a big price.
