The Parx Racing Feature with Malice Aforethought


Today's Feature Race from Parx Racing is brought to you via special promotional arrangements with 123gaming.com

We are well aware that Tiz'naz (6-1) could be damaged goods given today's sizable drop into open claimer for the first time for John Servis. But Servis is a profitable 27% effective in that scenario and has figures are superior. Maybe he's trying to qualify him for starter handicaps; whatever.

Three words: Best if fit. Taking Tiz'naz to win at 5-2 or greater.

Sorry, Spa fans, but between the tough-trip return at a completely inappropriate distance, the spacing to this event, the return to Saratoga and at his optimal distance, we cannot in good conscience try to defeat Palace Malice (5-2).

Taking Palace Malice to win with no price restrictions.

Ready for Action


Interesting Quick Call Stakes, per usual, this 5-1/2 sprint on the grass. And since he made his turf debut I've been awaiting Ready For Rye's (5-2) return. More than a good turf figure, he was visually impressive and, of course, he is a top sprinter on either surface but his biggest upside appears going short on the green.

His biggest obstacle, in addition to the competition, will be the 123 pounds he shoulders. But under these conditions--even if it gets rained off...

Taking Ready for Rye to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with talented Cyclogenesis (4-1), exiting a key race.

Buying Into W-I-D-E Open Shine Again


There are some fast returnees, Stonetastic (5-2), and classy returnee's, Unbridled Forever (5-1) and sharp stalkers, Wavell Avenue (4-1)--all making this an interesting heat.

But we need to throw deep here with a low profile outfit that's highly profitable with its shippers, whose style and post, a filly whose style fits the speedy race shape, as does the presence of pilot Jose Lezcano.

But it's the early price (8-1), and the likelihood of getting it at post time, that makes You Bought Her our choice.

Taking You Bought her at early line odds or greater, and key-boxing her in all multiples with the rivals listed above.
