Parx Racing has an 11-race card this afternoon, and Joe Parisi is on board to handicap. Post time is the normal 12:25 p.m. Good luck!

Carryovers: None

Note: Joe likes multi-race wagers, so horses in these may be considered for doubles and Pick 3s, in particular.

RACE 1

  • #7 Mustn’t Grumble-Woodbine shipper dropping. Should improve on second after 2 month layoff. Linder has good stats under these circumstances.
  • #2 Ebo Special-Second race after class drop. Ness good stats on first after claim.

RACE 2

  • #8 Angel Embrace-Tampa shipper trying dirt for the second time. Has been working well in the morning.
  • #2 Squealer-May improve first time Lasix and facing a weak field.

RACE 3

  • #6 I Saw It All– Trouble last race. Second time at this level with new trainer should lead to improvement.

RACE 4

  • #4 Fine One Won-Won for fun in her last race. Will win again if she can repeat that effort.
  • #5 Padrinoneverquits– Coming off hot early fractions in last race. Will be competitive if she can get an easy lead.

RACE 6

  • #5 Castle Casanova– Dropping to lowest claiming level of career. Will be a threat if he can run back to earlier speed figures.
  • #7 Here Wego-Has four wins in 15 lifetime starts and  will be a threat if he gets loose on the lead.

RACE 10

  • #6 Chub Wagon-Led at every call in first two races and no reason for that to change against these.
  • #3 Cardi G-PA Bred has been running well against open company.
