A Reluctant Vote for Shug’s La Madrina


Today's Belmont Park feature, a NW3X going a mile for fillies and mares features a group with spotty form and any number of weak-up possibilities. e have no clue as to which one of the group will jump up and thus we're taking the safe way out with La Madrina (9-5).

This fillies certainly is bred for the added ground and has earned the field's best Energy Ratings under similar one-turn conditions. We will be treading lightly, however.

Taking La Madrina to win at early line odds or greater and key-boxing her with potential price shots Natalie Victoria (8-1), coming back on short rest for Michelle Nevin with a switch to the talented apprentice Eric Cancel, and Hot Stones (6-1), making her third start off the layup for Bruce Levine with Johnny V. on a return call.


Number of Selections since 2007: 1767 [Sunday's turf selection was later rescheduled to main track]

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 532-336

Amount Wagered: $3,534 [to win only]

Not Betting Against the Win…so to speak


Today's Parx Racing feature race is brought to you through special promotional arrangement with 123gaming.com

But we are betting Against the Win (5-2) in today's featured eighth race at Parx Racing.

The gelded 4YO has gotten a late start in his career but he has shown some promise as a visually impressive maiden breaker at Tampa in April. Lightly raced and seemingly well managed by Delacour--batting 25% with his repeaters and he gives the white hot Acosta the call.

Today's ground should be to his liking and should score his third straight turf victory without a defeat in this perfectly suitable spot.

Taking Against the Win to win at 8-5 or greater and a boxed exacta with the sharp Park Avenue Appeal (9-2)

Number of Selections since 2007: 1767

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 532-336

Amount Wagered: $3,534 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,638.00

Profit to Date: $104.00

A Grand Bed o’ Roses Matchup


Today's Grade 3 Bed o' Roses is a two-horse race on paper and likely will be that way to the wire. Will it be speed filly Verdad (2-1) lead throughout for her sixth win over the Elmont surface, or will Grade 1 winner Dame Dorothy run her down in the shadow of the wire? We taking the latter proposition.

Dame Dorothy will spot her main rival one pound as the 123-pound high-weight but La Verdad must spot Room For Me seven pounds, a filly she beaten by a half-length in their last meeting. The latter might be able to press her enough to set things up for the late runner.

Taking Dame Dorothy to win, on price restrictions, an exacta box with La Verdad, and adding Street Story (6-1) and Expression (12-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1766

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 531-336

Amount Wagered: $3,532 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,634.50

Profit to Date: $102.50
