Horse Racing Picks

Most Likely Winner:  Central Park (Race 2) - There are two Robertino Diodoro horses entered in this race, which usually doesn’t bode well for any challengers, however I see no reason why Central Park shouldn’t beat this field. He was a little up and down last year over this track, but he put together a very strong meet at Tampa Bay Downs over the winter and his trainer David Van Winkle should have him primed for an even better effort here, though all he needs to do is maintain his current form to win.

Best Value:  Superior’s Boy (Race 7) - This starter optional claiming turf dash is a tough race to get a feel for, but if Superior’s Boy really does end up near his morning-line odds of 12-1 he’s going to be an irresistible bet. This horse did close out 2020 on a low note, however he’s a confirmed turf sprinter in a race lacking such runners, and he even finished fourth in a stakes race over this course last year. If he shows up with his usual effort over turf, he should have no trouble beating this group at a square price.

Other Races of Interest:  Race 3 - Similar to Race 7 later on the card, this turf sprint is conspicuously lacking contenders with good form over this surface. Almost by default, I have to side with Lilfeatheredindian (#1), who really woke up on this turf course last year, when she broke her maiden with a 66 Beyer Speed Figure. The rest of her meet was rather forgettable, but she did at least run another decent race at this trip, and if she can get back to her better turf races she’s going to have a huge advantage on this lackluster group, none of whom have much pedigree for this surface.

Race 5 - It’s pretty much impossible to trust anyone in this maiden claimer on turf, which is why I’m going to take a shot with a first-time runner on the surface, Daigle (#3). Her sire Can the Man is one of the most underrated turf influences going right now, and she also has some pedigree for the surface on her damside. The biggest question I have with her is whether or not she’ll be able to handle this distance, however I think her abundant turf breeding could potentially overcome a lack of stamina, along with her trainer Tony Rengstorf, who is one of the best on the grounds.
