Horse Racing Picks

Most Likely Winner: (Race 4: Summer’s Indy #1, Ashley’s New Shoes #1A, 8/5):

Karl Broberg has a double entry that is going to be tough to beat. If you get 8/5 at post time that would qualify as an overlay. It is not going to happen, but we can hope against hope. Broberg will have Tim Thornton on one of these runners, and whichever shows, looks promising. I think Ashley’s New Shoes #1A is the horse-for-the-course, as a DD specialist. That mare gets my vote.

Wager: $100 Win, #1/1A

 

Favorite I Am Against: (Race 1: Race Craft #3, 9/5):

A son of Street Sense, Race Craft #3, from the barn of Steve Asmussen is going to get the nod as favorite in this MSW race. He has yet to break his maiden after 6 lifetime races. I don’t think it is a foregone conclusion that he will win. The price is just going to be too low for my taste. I want the buffet… where is it? Ah, how about Desoto’s War #7 from Grant Forster’s able outfit? I like this runner because even though he turned in a clunker in his first out at the Fair Grounds, at least he took a trip around half an oval in an actual race. Coming to DD will be just the trick. He has worked well, and Alex Birzer is a pretty capable rider. Much better price… how about a filling 20/1 for your belly?

Wager: Bankroll: $100, Graduated Wager, WPS #7 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)

 

Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 9: Apalachee Bay #7, 10/1):

Rylee Grudzien continues to build her resume, and she is proving that she is not a training prodigy anymore. Of course, she still has more to do, but anytime she brings one her runners into a DD race, everyone needs to take notice. Apalachee Bay #7 is a horse that is seasoned, and was running well towards the end of 2020 at Remington and before that, Prairie Meadows. Joe Stokes rides an entry with odds of 10/1… here’s to a higher price at post time!

Wager: Bankroll: $100, Graduated Wager, WPS #7 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)

 

Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 2: Dirt, 5F, ALLW39k, 3F):

A group of 8 fillies are part of this ALLW sprint… Once again, Karl Broberg has the favorite, and it makes sense that Scampering Grayce #3 obtains that mantle because last out @Sam Houston she didn’t run. When you stop halfway through a race, something is amiss. Even though it wasn’t her night, her prior races were stellar at Delta, but she has to get back to it. I would trust her, but not at a price like this one… Let’s go with a filly named Clearly Sailing #1 from the barn of Brett Calhoun. She has 3 starts under her belt, with the last 2 coming in ALLW Co. @FG. Those efforts were mixed at best… Getting back to DD might be just the ticket, as Diego Saenz picks up the mount.   

Wager: $2 Exacta Cold, 1 w 3
