Best Horse Racing Bets for Wednesday, December 9, 2020
Parx Racing was my favorite track out of the three I picked for review for Wednesday; the other two were Gulfstream Park — easily my second-favorite — and Tampa Bay Downs, which, well, let’s just say they were in third place and leave it at that, m’kay?
Incidentally, remember that I cover the three richest races at three of my favorite tracks nearly every day, and you can always find those races and those tracks — including the entries, jockeys, M/L odds, and the wagering option — at one of our recommended online racebooks.
We’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s get right to the summary of my picks, tips, and predictions for Wednesday, December 9, 2020.
Gulfstream Park Predictions for Wednesday
- Race 3: Putman 5/2 (win)
- Race 3: Papa Luke 5/1 (sleeper)
- Race 4: High Speed Stef 3/1 (win)
- Race 8: Roman Empire 6/1 (win)
- Race 8: Target Tales 15/1 (show)
Gulfstream Park provided us with plenty to wager about, including a rare sleeper in race 3. Sure, there’s an obvious morning-line favorite there with stats to prove he’s got what it takes, but what are we to make of that 5/1 entry with similarly impressive stats? Win, place, show, across the board–you make the call.
Plus, make a note of the fact that I picked a fourth-favored horse in race 8 for the win and a 15/1 show wager in that race as well.

Wednesday’s Picks and Predictions for Parx Racing
- Race 3: Tiz Gracie 7/2 (win)
- Race 3: Glory Dia 12/1 (show)
- Race 7: Mia Bella Rossa 5/2 (win)
- Race 7: Canoochee 15/1 (show)
- Race 8: La Wuan 5/2 (win)
- Race 8: Powerfully Built 10/1 (show)
I went with the morning line’s advice on races 7 and 8, but in the third race, I discovered a second-favored underdog with a real shot.
And I found a long-odds value show bet in each of the three races I reviewed. Now, the odds weren’t all that long — 12/1, 15/1, and 10/1, respectively — but a ticket that pays is money in the bank, right?

My Wednesday Picks and Predictions for Tampa Bay Downs
- Race 2: Rag Tag 3/2 (win)
- Race 5: Danceronthebeach 7/2 (win)
- Race 6: Thrown for a Loupe 3/1 (win)
Tampa Bay Downs continues to fall short this meet — at least for the races, I’ve been reviewing. Where are the underdogs? Where are the value show bets? Heavy sigh.
Okay, so I still have a job to do, and so I went with the morning line favorite in race 2 and race 6, then found the second-favored underdog in race 5 more to my liking. Not much of a glorious march to victory, but sometimes you have to take it where you find it.
