Wednesday Horse Racing: God's Tipster offers up three free picks for Canterbury Park
We are back in action for a balmy Wednesday of racing in Minnesota.
We are expecting sunny skies and fast and firm conditions.
Let’s get to work:
Race 1: Charlie’s Missile - 1 pt win - (US Morning Line Odds: 5/1)
Maidens sprint 5 1/2 furlongs on the main track to begin our week and four of these runners face one another last time out. That day, Celtics Wildcat ran too good to lose dueling til the very late stages when she was collared and beaten by a neck. This time she breaks from the outside and I think she’ll be at a disadvantage for that reason. Charlie’s Missile on the other hand finally gets to break inside of Celtics Wildcat after breaking outside of her in the first two starts of her career. Trainer is winning at 22%. Highest Tomlinson in the field is worth another look.
Race 3: Firstmate - 2 pts win - BEST BET (US Morning Line Odds: 6-1)
Allowance turf runners go 7 1/2 furlongs here and I found an interesting stat in this race for our selection who’s 6-1 morning line for an unheralded barn who wins with 18% of their turf sprinters. Not only does Firstmate have the field’s top speed figure on turf (earned here last year at this distance) but she’s got the field’s second highest speed figure on turf too and she’s one point away from having the field’s third highest speed figure on turf and here’s the kicker – she’s only run on the grass three times! Similarly prepped last year off a 6 furlong sprint race Firstmate stretches out and switches to the same rider she won with here last year.

Race 5: Squared Straight - 1 pt win (US Morning Line Odds: 15-1)
Maidens sprint 5 furlongs on turf here and we’ve got a field of 8, 5 of whom have started on turf. Of those, Squared Straight owns the fields top two speed figures on turf. His career best (and therefore the top speed figure in the field) was earned at 5 1/2 furlongs – the shortest distance he’s ever run on grass. Today he shortens up to 5 furlongs. Low profile trainer seems to do one thing well and that’s turf sprints with 33% wins sprinting on the surface. He also wins with 2 of 8 maiden runners. A 21% rider is signed on and they step this one back up to straight maidens from maiden claimers which shows some confidence. Lots to like for a 15-1 shot.
Good luck 🍀🍀🍀 to all our members playing Wednesday’s races from Canterbury Park!
