Parx Racing has a 10-race card on tap for this afternoon. Post time for the opener is 12:25 p.m., and we’ve got Parx picks.

How’d we do last time at Parx?

Race 18-1-3-5State-bred juvenile maidens square off in the opener, and we’ll take a bit of a swing with #8 Eddie’s Charge (8-1). Trainer Lupe Preciado recently won his 2,000th race and has a good record — 6-for-28 — with debut runners in special weight company. This Jump Start colt has been training forwardly and is a full to the hard-hitting allowance runner Jump for Alex, who won at first asking… #1 Louie’s Law (9-2) showed decent speed early in his debut to be up close for the opening portion of the race but was forced to absolutely jam on the brakes nearing the three-eighths and couldn’t recover from that. He did run on willingly enough thereafter and just missed fourth… We’ll give another crack to #3 Smokum Peace Pipe (3-1). The John Servis trainee disappointed last out as the chalk but gets Lasix on today… #5 Big Daddy Buzz (4-1) has run a pair of middling races in claiming company…
Race 67-2-3-9Top choice #7 Remain Anonymous (7-2) was a decent second last time out in the Malvern Rose on the synthetic surface at PID; winner Caravel is now four-for-five. This miss, who won at first asking, makes just her third start of the year in this spot… You can make a case that no horse here has run a better race than did #2 Crazy Bea (4-1) three back in a local allowance; that race produced three next-out winners, including Fly On Angel, who took the G3 Charles Town Oaks in her follow-up; this one then was perhaps outmatched on the slop in a stake at DEL and last out tired to second going a mile at Parx. She gets back to her best game here and can step forward… #3 Key Light (3-1) has won a couple of open allowance races, and while her recent form hasn’t been great, she was a decent second last out and could be moving back towards better races… #9 My Lily Pad (5-1) has won three straight, all pretty easily, and makes just her second start of 2020 here.
