Horses on my radar today at Parx Racing:
1st American Roma – coming off two wins and the last was dq’d, he’s a re-claim by Scott Lake. Has been claimed seven times in the past year and did not fare well. Look for a price elsewhere.
2nd Miami Tiger – first off the claim, again, for Scott lake. This is a better situation for him retaining the mount of Gerardo Milan, where he’s won on this gelding its last two. Machtree – first off claim for Kathleen DeMasi and had a freshening recently. Demasi 20% off claim, 21% off one to two months and 23% overall in claiming races.
10th Geebert – Joseph Taylor only 12% off the claim, yet is 28% with a last out winner. Mychael Sanchez up who is 23%.
Today’s highlight race is the eighth from Parx.
This is a $25K starter allowance for four-year olds and above which started for a claiming price of $25K or less and which have never won a race other than maiden or claiming or NW4.
What the numbers tell us:
#1 Aspen Extreme (2/1) and #8 Flat Out Flying (4/1) get best last with #1a Commandering (2/1), #7 Long Gray Line (4/1) and #9 True Blue (6/1) getting near best last numbers.
Flat Out Flying is best overall speed and Aspen Extreme is best overall class. There is a hodgepodge of best last two.
Long Gray Line is a bet I’ll make Since SmartCap was configured by a West Point grad, I have profitably bet him these past three races. As I wrote on Saturday about horses bouncing, this Grayday gelding will have a much-improved race today.
#6 Dance For Oro (8/1) is best money at the track with $13,625 per race.
Who will I bet today? Truthfully, this is a not a solid betting race for me and I’ll stick with a menial bet on my associate’s alma mater.
