Best Horse Racing Bets for Wednesday, February 3, 2021

| February 2, 2021 2:55 pm PDT

I chose Fair Grounds Race Course, Gulfstream Park, and Tampa Bay Downs for review for Wednesday, and while the pickings for value show wagers were slim, I found plenty of underdogs to tout at all three tracks.

Read on for the summary of my picks and predictions for Wednesday, February 3, 2021.

Good luck!

Wednesday Predictions and Picks for Fair Grounds Race Course

  • Race 6: Shades of Truth 9/5 (win)
  • Race 7: Sweet Blindness 4/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Dramatizer 4/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Faded Memories 12/1 (show)

Fair Grounds Race Course had a couple of profit opportunities for us to explore, including a second-favored underdog in race 7, and even better, a 12/1 likely money finish in race 8. Other than those, we had some longer-than-usual odds for the morning line favorite in race 8 and an obvious win for the 9/5 favorite in race 6.

My Wednesday Predictions for Gulfstream Park

  • Race 4: No Que No 7/2 (win)
  • Race 8: Include the Beast 5/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Splash Cash 20/1 (show)
  • Race 9: Hopeful Growth 2/1 (win)
  • Race 9: Crumb Bun 12/1 (show)

Gulfstream Park really came through for us, with a third-favored pick in race 4 and a fourth-favored sleeper in race 8. I had to agree with the morning line in race 9, but I found a solid 20/1 longshot for a money finish in race 8, as well as a 12/1 value show bet in race 9. Not great, but not bad at all. For a Wednesday, anyway.

Tampa Bay Downs Picks for Wednesday

  • Race 5: Lake Parima 7/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Morgan’s Z Va 5/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Starship Reina 5/2 (win)

Tampa Bay Downs had a couple of underdogs for me to tout, including the second-favored entry in race 5 and the third-favored (at 4/1) horse in race 7. Speaking of race 7, if you’re a regular reader of my predictions, you’ll note that I was way off with my touting of a win from Morgan’s Z Va a couple of weeks ago, but stats don’t lie, even when they don’t predict with 100% accuracy.

Unfortunately, the tracks I reviewed were all (with the notable exception of Gulfstream Park) very withholding on value show prospects, so with Tampa Bay Downs, all we have are the underdogs.
