Parx has an 12-race card on tap for this Tuesday afternoon. Post time for the opener is 12:55 p.m., and we’ve got Parx Racing picks.
It’s a solid card, with several allowance races and a couple of intriguing runners.on the docket.
|Race 8||2, 4, 5||Speedy #2 Romanoff (4-1) should appreciate the class relief on the drop-down from two-other-than company… Once-promising #4 Inter Miami (5-2) was an easy winner last time out, looks to recapture earlier form, and can improve in first in Guerrero barn… Value proposition here might be #5 Brilliant Chase (5-1) who showed little in first 11 tries of career but then obliterated a maiden field by nine with big speed fig last time; the runner-up from that test graduated in his follow-up…|
|Race 9||1, 3, 7||The John Servis-trained #3 Appealing Future (5-2) looks to recapture form that made him a Claiming Crown winner in ’18; easier group offered up today should help… Perfect spot for #1 All Star Red (3-1), who bested $5k starters two back and then rallied last out into fourth, beaten less than three, against $20k claimers; half-step drop here could put this one in the winner’s circle… #7 Manolete (10-1) has beaten similar, enters off a win against lesser…|
|Race 10||1A, 2, 3, 5, 9||Here’s a wide-open affair with a couple of recent claimbacks looking to recapture earlier form. Those include the speedy #2 Fix Me a Sandwich (12-1), whose recent form isn’t great but who did run some good races for past and current trainer Joseph Taylor; and onetime stake winner #3 Navy Commander (12-1), who won the ’18 Long Branch for trainer Butch Reid, who’s looking for this 5yo to recapture that form in his second since the Covid break… Taylor’s other runner in here, #1A True Boldness (5-2) is the most likely winner in the group with two straight good efforts against better in the bank…|
|Race 11||2, 3, 5 10||Curious to see how the cutback works for #2 Ashraq (7-2), who was a pretty good second last time out after leading a long way going 6 1/2 furlongs; Shadwell homebred is by Medaglia d’Oro out of an unraced Elusive Quality mare… Second start since January for #5 Bojingle (4-1), who was fourth behind the promising Skol Factor last time out and still looks to be improving… Let’s give another crack to #10 Lucky Hero (15-1); he showed some late interest after lagging well back early; like to see him a bit more involved early in this one…|
|WAGERING…||The track offers rolling Pick 3 wagers and rolling doubles, and P3s using all of our horses above starting in races 8 and 9 would cost $22.50 for 50 cents for a buck and $30.00 for the same amount. Good luck!|
