Free Pick of the Day for Friday, Dec. 7

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Friday, Feb. 7

Santa Anita
7th race--
Assuming this race stays on the turf, let's give an upset chance to this Gutierrez-trained filly. She ran evenly when sprinting in her debut and her sire (Affirmative) does well with turf runners. She should improve going long on the grass, so tab at a square price.

Yesterday's Result: PROVENANCE was DQ'd from third in 2nd race.

Live Longshot: DREAM BABY (8th race)

ShowVivor: CARIBE D'ORO (3rd race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/0 features:
--Daily Graded Handicap Selections
--Premium Selections on Weekends and Monday holidays
--Free Pick of the Day
--Useful Links and Racing Info
