Parx has an 11-race card on tap for this Tuesday afternoon. Post time for the opener is 12:55 p.m., and we’ve got a couple horses to watch and Parx Racing picks.
We also have a play in a late Pick 3, which starts in the fifth race (post time 2:43).
HORSES TO WATCH
RACE 7 – MAIDEN SPECIAL WEIGHT
- Three-year-old #3 Double Doink (3-1) is a Ghostzapper filly out of the stakes-winning Petionville mare Villette. Her first two starts are middling, though her last, a third-place finish behind a $175,000 Tiznow filly, might be better than it looks. A $150,000 auction purchase, this miss has been training well enough for a trainer, John Servis, who can get them ready to win first time off the bench.
- The most likely winner here might be the 1A Ice Diamond (9-5, part of entry), who arrives after a third-place finish at Delaware behind two super-well-bred rivals in Be Present, a $400,000 Bernardini filly, and Allende, who’s out of the Hall of Famer Ashado. Ice Diamond doesn’t figure to see any of those in here.
|Race 5||4, 5, 6, 9||The Claudio Gonzalez-trained #4 Atlantic Avenue (3-1) makes her third start since the break and arrives following a win… #6 Elissas Secret (20-1) generally has been going the wrong way but has better efforts on the page and may benefit from the four-month break… Look for jockey Silvera to put #9 Skookie (2-1) on the lead early; if she gets there, she can be tough, but if not – well, you’ll know pretty quickly with this one…|
|Race 6||4, 5, 6||It’s quite possible the post-time favorite might end up being #3 My Best Friend (5-2), who’s second choice on the morning line; but this runner’s been away since January ’19, a space of 18 months, and will offer no value. If she returns as the filly she was, she’s a major player here. If not, well, not. We left her off the ticket in favor of a trio of horses to her outside… A.m. favorite #4 Come and Get It (2-1) gets Lasix for the first time and goes out for the first time for trainer Ness… We’re inclined to think the Beyers for #5 Up Just in Time (6-1) might be a bit lighter than they ought to be; a couple of the horses she’s competed with aren’t bad at all… Not sure what to make of that last from #6 Will Take Over (4-1), but we’ll draw a line through it and give her one more crack; good to see jockey Bisono remain aboard…|

|TOTAL COST||$24 for a one-dollar base||Good luck!|
