Thistledown Racino Picks for Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Thoroughbred racing at Thistledown Racino continues Wednesday, June 17, 2020, with an eight-match card of mostly claiming and maiden races.

The forecast for Wednesday in North Randall, Ohio, calls for mostly sunny skies, temperatures in the low 80s, and winds around eight mph.

While I cover the top three races here, you can always find the complete list of Thistledown Racino’s scheduled matches, including entries, connections, and wagering options, at these top online horse racing betting sites.

Post time for the first race at Thistledown Racino on Wednesday is 12:50 PM (EDT). Let’s take a look at my predictions, picks, and tips.


  • Post Time: 12:50 PM
  • Purse: $27,500
  • Distance: 5-1/2 furlongs
  • Conditions: For Accredited Ohio Foals Maidens, Fillies And Mares Three Years Old And Upward

Race 1 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Edge, L Machado, 8/1
  • 2 Vaquerita, H Berrios, 6/1
  • 3 Delightful Pride, F Salazar Becerra, 9/2
  • 4 Nan’s Rose, J S Toledo, 7/2
  • 5 True Light, E Barbaran, 3/1
  • 6 Sassy Sister, Y L Correa, 6/1
  • 7 Bainbridge, D J Haldar, 10/1
  • 8 Way Back When, J M Magrell, 12/1
  • 9 Weekend At Last, E Paucar, 15/1

Race 1 Prediction and Pick

I’m going to stick with the 3/1 moneyline favorite for this maiden race—True Light, ridden by Eric Barbaran. This three-year-old filly has but two career starts, one of which she moneyed.

Race 1 Tip

None of the long-odds entries in this race are worth the risk, so save your longshot money for later.

  • True Light


  • Post Time: 3:50 PM
  • Purse: $29,300
  • Distance: 5-1/2 furlongs
  • Conditions: For Registered Ohio Foals Three Year Olds And Upward Which Have Never Won A Race Other Than Maiden, Claiming Or Starter Or Which Have Never Won Two Races

Race 7 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Danefield, W Alencar, 5/2
  • 2 Chief Big Head, E Barbaran, 6/1
  • 3 Split My Britches, S Jimenez, 9/2
  • 4 Osteens Message, L R Rivera, 8/1
  • 5 Bearpath, A Bracho, 6/1
  • 6 City Volume, J J Velez, 3/1
  • 7 Joes a Rockin, H Berrios, 7/2
  • 8 Run for Cash, F Salazar Becerra, 10/1

Race 7 Prediction and Pick

I like the third-favored (7/2) entry in this race: Joes a Rockin, with Hector Berrios in the irons. This four-year-old gelding has finished in the money five times out of 12 career starts, with one of those a win. It helps that Berrios is one of the top jockeys in this race.

Race 7 Tip

The riskiest I’ll get on long odds in this race is 6/1, and that’s for a show ticket on Bearpath, ridden by Agustin Bracho. This four-year-old gelding has moneyed four times out of six career starts, one of them a win. Not much of a payout, but if you go home with more than you showed up with, that’s a win, right?

  • Joes a Rockin


  • Post Time: 4:20 PM
  • Purse: $27,500
  • Distance: 5-1/2 furlongs
  • Conditions: For Accredited Ohio Foals Maidens, Fillies And Mares Three Years Old And Upward

Race 8 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Succotash, E Barbaran, 3/1
  • 2 Tom’s Tune, B L Hollingsworth, 12/1
  • 3 Welloiledcat, J J Velez, 10/1
  • 4 Island Chic, Y L Correa, 8/1
  • 5 Grazia Who, H L Rosario, Jr., 7/2
  • 6 Miss Kettle Zip, R Feliciano, 6/1
  • 7 April Marie, E Paucar, 9/2
  • 8 Baccarat, L R Rivera, 15/1
  • 9 Ma Kettle, F Ceballos, 6/1

Race 8 Prediction and Pick

I’m putting my money on the third-favored (9/2) entry in this maiden race: April Marie, ridden by the winningest jockey in this race, Edgar Paucar. This filly has one money finish in three career starts.

Race 8 Tip

I don’t see any long odds in this race worth the risk, and I suspect strongly that the three money finishers will match the moneyline predictions, but in reverse order (#7, #5, #1).

  • April Marie
