One of the best kept secrets in all of Thoroughbred racing starts another week ... it's Delta Downs! Last week, we saw jockey Tim Thornton win a record 7-races on 1 card  ... what an accomplishment! 

Located near Lake Charles, Louisiana, the Boyd Gaming site features a 6 furlong "bull ring" that is ready for action. This week running during the day continues, while they sort out the problems with their new lighting system. We will see how that impacts the rest of the Meet ... 

At we have you covered, including all of the action! It is a good time for some of the best that North American racing has to offer. Stay tuned!

Most Likely Winner: (Race 1: Priddis #6, 5/2):

The outfit of Robertino Diodoro continues to maintain a “national” footprint, as he enters a number of key markets. This filly is still looking for her 1st win, and the time seems right for a score. With Ry Eikleberry “sending” her early, the aggressive team appears poised for a maiden victory. Diodoro had her running at Oaklawn, Churchill, and most recently over the summer at Canterbury Park. The “Tale of the Tape” looks promising, especially if you are a fan of speed figs. Those continue to increase over the course of her last 3 races, and I am betting she has what it takes to cross the wire 1st.

Wager: $100 Win, #6


Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 3: Bodee Bodee #2, 9/1):

Our long shot pick of the afternoon is this young gelding by Bodemeister. The best news is that the Hodges Barn charge already has his debut race out of the way. Now, he knows what he is about … as a racehorse, I mean. Getting the services of Emanuel Nieves is a plus too, since he is an able rider. If he can get his mount out of the gate in good order, and lay close to the lead, then he could have a shot at the win at a nice price. Here's to hoping that this one’s fitness is sharp as a tack.

Wager: Graduated Wager, WPS, $100 Bankroll, #2 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)


Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 9: Dirt, ALLW42k, 3+ LA Breds):

The focal point on the Wednesday card is this tough little LA Bred contest. The entrants will be turning and burning down the backstretch at Delta, hoping to be on or close to the lead. When it comes to those that like to go “early,” I am partial to the Ramirez Barn’s Knockalittlelouder #3. The gelding by Ole Rebel was not too shabby (6/3-1-0) in 2021, and if Kevin Roman can control the pace up front, then he might be on a winner that is double-digit odds when this one goes off.

This one is a player, but I am like a couple of other rivals that could be in the mix late in the game. Trainer David Gomez sends his fairly-new member of his barn into action. Pickens #4 was in the keep of Steve Asmussen before leaving the HOF conditioner in August. The 1st time out with Gomez in an OC17.5k event, the 4-yr-old ran 2nd. By Goldencents, who is a Spendthrift sire of some renown, the colt has the chance to step-up in this moment.

Last but not least, I am pretty intrigued by Bret Calhoun’s 3-yr-old by Mass Media. Micajah #8 looks like the type who could appreciate a drop when it comes to class. He should be primed after running last in a “Non-G” over at Evangeline Downs. That might sound like specious reasoning, but if you look back at his pair of races prior to that bump up, then you find some more than “game” efforts. Using this one at the top of any ticket seems more than sensible, especially with a jockey like Diego Saenz in the saddle.

These 3 entries should make for a nice “Trifecta” ticket at the end of the day … what a payout it should be!

Wager: Trifecta Box, $2, 3/4/8


Delta Downs is back for another week of racing … enjoy some racing from SW Louisiana!
