Free Pick of the Day for Friday, Feb. 14


Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Friday, Feb. 14

Santa Anita
6th race--
#8 BROWSING (9-2)
Recent maiden claiming winner from Sadler barn stretched out in distance and easily proved best. He should fit well at this starter allowance level, gets plenty of pace in front of her and switches to red-hot rider Desormeaux.

Yesterday's Result: HOLIDAY N NEWPORT finished second in 4th race.


Live Longshot: CODE OF PLEASURE (3rd race)

ShowVivor: PEACE AND JUSTICE (5th race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/2

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Thursday, Feb. 13

Santa Anita
4th race--
#6 HOLIDAY N NEWPORT (2-1)
Pender-trained filly drops a peg as she shortens back up to a sprint distance and appears to be the controlling speed from her outside post. No excuses in this spot.

Yesterday's Result: FAITH HOPE LOVE finished second in 3rd race.


Live Longshot: STENOA (8th race)

ShowVivor: BAYERN (7th race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/1

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Sunday, Feb. 9

Santa Anita
3rd race--
#6 FAITH HOPE LOVE (5-2)
Sophomore filly from Dollase barn comes off a runner-up try going 5 1/2 furlongs and is strictly the one to beat as she makes her third career start today. She retains leading rider Bejarano and will have to beat a couple fast-working debut runners to her outside.

Yesterday's Result: NAZARETH finished third in 4th race.


Live Longshot: XUANG FENG (7th race)

ShowVivor: RANULF (1st race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/0

Bob Ike's Free Pick of the Day for Saturday, Feb. 8

Santa Anita
4th race--
#6 NAZARETH (3-1)
Sophomore filly from Puype barn turned in a nice third-place effort (beaten just a length) in her debut and should be ready to show her best on the stretch out. She is bred to route top and bottom and gets a major rider upgrade to Smith, so tab in this competitive maiden heat going nine furlongs.

Yesterday's Result: WARREN'S EMPIRE ran out in 7th race.


Live Longshot: DUBAI YOU X Y Z (7th race)

***Live Longshot DREAM BABY ($16.20) won the 8th race.

ShowVivor: GAME ON DUDE (5th race)

Longest Streak/Current: 8/1

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

Santa Anita
7th race--
#4 WARREN'S EMPIRE (8-1)
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
