Throwing Deep in Memories of Silver


It takes nerve to bet against Chad Brown in these overnight turf stakes. Ditto Christophe Clement when unveiling the newest Euro ship-in. But that's the plan.

Kawfee Fa Marfa (12-1) could be seriously underrated here. A sharp main track winner at a mile in her season's debut at Parx, she earned a competitive Pricci Energy Rating in her lone start sprinting on turf at 2.

She beat more than half her 12 rivals after breaking from a wide slip going 5-1/2 furlongs, losing by less than 5 lengths. She wants today's added distance.

Taking Kawfee Fa Marfa to win at 8-1 or greater and key-boxing her in exactas with Consumer Credit (3-5) and Colour Party (5-1).


Number of Selections since 2008: 1729

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 522-331

Amount Wagered: $3,458 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,570.50

Profit to Date: $112.50

Take Barker, Bemata in Big A Feature


Today's 8th race feature at the Big A is a tricky read. There are returnees, those suspect at the distance and unproven quantities at the NW2/optional level. That's why we're opting on the side of recent form.

Trainer Eddie Barker doesn't get nearly enough credit for the job he does and he's apparently done some very good work with Bemata (4-1), which he claimed from David Jacobson Jan. 3.

After winning on the raise off the claim, he regressed in his second start but last out was resurgent, missing by a nose in an overnight stakes despite another class rise. He's come back with a bullet five-eighths since and draws a switch to Irad Ortiz.

Taking Bemata to win at 7-2 or greater and an exacta box with Coach Inge (5-2), coming off a New Pace Top for the Todd/Johnny team.

Preciado Holds Key to 123bet Parx Pick Six


Today's featured 9th at Parx Racing is Siete De Oros (5-2) to lose providing, of course, he runs back to either of his last two efforts. He's won 3 of 4 this season for super-trainer Preciado who has found the hole card to this former Derby campaigner. In present form, he should stretch out effectively with this group.

Taking Siete Do Oros to win, no price restrictions, key-boxing him in exactas with Ragtime (10-1), who's had a terrific 4YO campaign for John Servis, and Rienzi (6-1), on a bounce-rebound pattern and dropping to winning level. Also using Celebrated Talent (7-2), shipping in from NY for Linda Rice, in the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2008: 1727

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 521-331

Amount Wagered: $3,454 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,566.00

Profit to Date: $112.10
