Parx Racing

Race 6 // 2:22 pm ET // $200,000 Plum Pretty Stakes // 1-1/16 miles

#5 Trolley Ride (6-1 ML)

If the star sprinter Chub Wagon stays in the race, I like my mare even more. There’s plenty of pace in this two-turn race and I love the rider change to former Parx leading jockey Kendrick Carmouche in a homecoming of sorts. Win-place bet. Consider daily double 5-2 to this pair of picks.


Park Racing

Race 7 // 2:51 pm ET // $200,000 Parx Dirt Mile // 1 mile

#2 West Will Power (5-1 ML)

Big respect for trainer Kelly Breen. He has a horse on the rise with this 4-year-old, who was runner-up to Code of Honor in the Iselin. Look for a mid-pack trip with a stalk-and-pounce style. Win bet. Exacta box 2-6 with classy Met Mile winner and race favorite Silver State.
