Free Horse Racing Picks and Betting Tips for Louisiana Downs – Monday, June 22, 2020

Louisiana Downs Picks for Monday, June 22, 2020

Thoroughbred racing continues at Harrah’s Louisiana Downs on Monday, June 22, 2020 with a seven-race card of maiden, claiming, and allowance matches.

The forecast for Bossier City, Louisiana on Monday calls for scattered thunderstorms with a 40% chance of rain, temps in the low 90s, and winds around 12 mph.

While I cover the three richest races here, you can always find the complete list of races, entries, jockeys, and wagering options for Louisiana Downs at our recommended horse racing betting sites.

My Louisiana Downs picks and betting tips for today follow below.

RACE 1

  • Post Time: 3:05 PM
  • Purse: $19,000
  • Type: ALLOWANCE
  • Distance: About 5 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet)
  • For Fillies And Mares Three Years Old And Upward Which Have Never Won A Race Other Than Maiden, Claiming, Or Starter Or Which Have Never Won Two Races. If deemed inadvisable by management to run this race over the turf course, it will be run on the main track at Five Furlongs.

Race 1 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Saint Kennedy, H Del-Cid, 5/1
  • 2 My Sister Annette, A Castillo, 7/2
  • 3 Boston Cadillac, J Gilligan, 7/5
  • 4 Sienna Breeze, E Martin, Jr., 12/1
  • 5 Shallow River, J Dominguez, 7/2
  • 6 Altered Dream, C Lozada, 6/1

Race 1 Prediction and Pick

My money’s on the 7/5 favorite, Boston Cadillac, with Jack Gilligan aboard. Sometimes—particularly in maiden races—you’re forced to go with the least unlikely to win, and that’s the case here. This three-year-old filly moneyed five times in her 11 career starts, three of them wins. Boston Cadillac is carrying less weight (115 lbs) in this race, which helps.

Race 1 Tip

Speaking of weight allowance helping, I think 12/1 slightly undervalues Sienna Breeze, ridden by Eddie Martin, Jr. This three-year old filly is also carrying 115 pounds (most of the other entries are carrying 122 pounds). For the record, Sienna Breeze has finished in the money once (a win) in her six career starts.

Pick
  • Boston Cadillac
    7/5

RACE 3

  • Post Time: 4:01 PM
  • Purse: $18,000
  • Type: MAIDEN SPECIAL WEIGHT
  • Distance: About 5 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet)
  • For Maidens, Three Years Old And Upward. If deemed inadvisable by management to run this race over the turf course, it will be run on the main track at Five Furlongs.

Race 3 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Starzip, J Dominguez, 3/1
  • 2 Rivers Rising, J A Guerrero, 4/1
  • 3 Imeanttopay, SCRATCHED
  • 4 Theperfectsamurai, F Rodriguez, 20/1
  • 5 Thelma and Annie, E Martin, Jr., 9/2
  • 6 Choppa Style, J Gilligan, 5/1
  • 7 Alterana, G Mora, 7/2
  • 8 Top Hat Titan, A Green, 8/1

Race 3 Prediction and Pick

I’m going with the second-favored (7/2) entry in this race: Alterana, with Gerardo Mora in the irons. I think the shorter distance will be an advantage to this three-year-old gelding, who finished in the money three times in nine starts.

Race 3 Tip

I don’t see any long-odds entries in this race worth the risk.

Pick
  • Alterana
    7/2

RACE 7

  • Post Time: 5:49 PM
  • Purse: $19,000
  • Type: ALLOWANCE
  • Distance: About 5 furlongs (turf, rail at 20 feet)
  • For Three Year Olds And Upward Which Have Never Won A Race Other Than Maiden, Claiming, Or Starter Or Which Have Never Won Two Races. If deemed inadvisable by management to run this race over the turf course, it will be run on the main track at Five Furlongs.

Race 7 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Whacudposblygowrng, E Nieves, 9/2
  • 1A Canihaveitlikethat, C Lozada, 9/2
  • 2 Tough Charlie, A Green, 3/1
  • 3 Pat Me Down, J Dominguez, 12/1
  • 4 Mister Strange, A Castillo, 10/1
  • 5 Fuelinjectedprayer, O Martinez, 10/1
  • 6 Cape Town Willy, R Flores, 20/1
  • 7 Secret Biscuit, G Mora, 5/2
  • 8 Beta Lake, F Rodriguez, 3/1

Coupled Entries – 1 – Whacudposblygowrng, 1A – Canihaveitlikethat

Race 7 Prediction and Pick

I like the second-favored (3/1) entry in this race, Tough Charlie, ridden by Aubrie Green. This four-year-old gelding has moneyed four of his seven career starts, two of them wins.

Race 7 Tip

Not exactly a long shot, but 9/2 Whacudposblygowrng, with Emmanuel Nieves aboard, is a definite show ticket, if not a win bet. This  three-year-old gelding has three money finishes out of six career starts—two of them wins. Provided the coupled entry holds to post time, you get two entries that have moneyed three times in six starts for the price of one.

Pick
  • Tough Charlie
    3/1
