Parx has a 10-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.

How’d we do last Tuesday at Parx?

Race 11, 2, 3The horse to watch in this maiden event is #2 Dance for the Gold (3-1). The daughter of Medaglia d’Oro is the first foal out of the Speightstown mare Dance to Bristol. Back in 2013, Dance to Bristol compiled an eight-race win streak, capped by a win in the Grade 1 Ballerina, her third consecutive graded victory. The Ollie Figgins trainee, who was based at Bowie, later ran in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. This one’s trained by Jorge Duarte, who is 5-for-26 with first-timers in special weight company… You’ll have to respect the favorite in here, #3 Dare to Try (6-5), who’s been in the money all four starts and last out was second versus similar after a wide journey… #1 Brooklyn Heights (5-1) gave a much-improved account of herself last time after running against the bias the race before; that last race was slightly faster than allowance fillies ran the distance one race later…
Race 82, 3, 6, 8We’re not all that enthralled with the horses that have run previously in this maiden, so we’ll look to the newcomers. #3 Zeyaraat (7-2) is a Shadwell homebred who’s been training pretty well for trainer Mike Pino (5/24 1st start, maiden special weight)… #6 Peyton Elizabeth (5-2) is a $155,000 Flatter filly making her debut for trainer John Servis (14% with 2yo 1st-timers in special weight company). She’s been training forwardly… Of those who’ve started, #2 Bravo Regina (6-1) completely puked last time but had a pretty good debut when second to an Into Mischief firster who was an RNA at $340k… #8 Catti La Belle (20-1) looked to have been running against the bias last time and was very green throughout, but let’s not judge too harshly: the runner-up came back to win the G1 Spinaway next out and the show horse graduated next out, as well. Lasix on for this filly, who’s a half to G3 winner Cairo Cat.
Race 95, 6, 10Look for #5 Cinnabunny (8-1) to be sent for the early lead here after failing to make the front and then stopping last time. We’re inclined to draw a line through that last; her other tries compete here… #6 Madam Meena (2-1) has been a win machine for trainer Ness (5-for-8) while gradually taking on tougher competition, and she crushed state-bred allowance foes last time… Can #10 Portal Creek (7-2) repeat her career-best effort from last time? She’s not likely to get so easy a lead, but if she does, sye might be tough to reel in…
WAGERING…We’re inclined to use Dance for the Gold on top if the value is there versus taking short odds on Dare to Try in the first… The eighth offers a couple of chances to get longer-priced horses in the mix, which could make exactas or doubles enticing…
