DEL MAR RACE PICKS!
Mark Muir: AKA; Fuego Chiefo
Overweight and outta shape, but, by far the smartest and most likable horse on the track. Hometown horse would be a community favorite. But, horse really doesn’t wanta run to the finish line. Soon to be retired to greener pasture, watch horse to make comeback from retirement. Watch for easy favorite to pull himself out of the race.
Chris Hazeltine: AKA; Hall Ball
Strong and young horse that makes many mistakes down the stretch, as the race gets down to the nitty gritty, Hall Ball will get first run on his long-time friends, take the lead at the top of the lane, and have enough to hold off all comers. This horse is a favorite with the current prize winner.
Larry Watt: AKA; Arborist Choice
Arborist Choice, nominated but unlikely, will be trying to prove he fits in company, as a horse raised and taught by the county, may prove to be a poor training ground for this type of race track. Although a quick learner, sideline trees may blur Arborist Choice from even making it to the finish line. Also, not a favorite with the stable hands.
Jace Limbaugh: AKA; Moola Green
Moola Green is an unexpected entry, most likely more concerned with the purse, greenback or prize than the race itself. This low profile horse will bring up the back or fix the race in order to increase his rate of return.
Gary Murphy: AKA; Crazy Horse
Although, this is my favorite, horse has lotta energy, but his lack of experience and wild behavior (kicking and bucking) will most likely cause the horse to not even make it to the gate.
Odds: Better chance that BP will fix oil spill by this weekend
Speed bumps, trees, parks, flooding and revenue figures to be prominent in this year race, also key to this race may be the unknown Kentucy imports...
