Best Horse Racing Bets for Wednesday, January 13, 2021

I went with reviews for Gulfstream Park, Parx Racing, and Tampa Bay Downs for Wednesday — and learned a valuable lesson: Some days you’re the tornado, some days you’re the trailer park.

I mean, I found just one long-odds value show bet between the three tracks—and those are my favorite recommendations to make. Luckily, though, I still found plenty of underdogs, including second- and third-favored among the evenly-matched contenders in most of the races I reviewed.

Read on for the summary of my horse racing picks and predictions for Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

Good luck!

Gulfstream Park Predictions for Wednesday

  • Race 6: Soldollie 2/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Spill the Tea 4/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Tatweej 5/2 (win, if starts)
  • Race 8: Artie’s Rumor 4/1 (win, otherwise)
  • Race 8: Identifier 15/1 (show)

Gulfstream gave me the most varied and interesting choices, including a couple of third-favored underdogs (races 7 and 8), a 15/1 value show ticket wager, and of course, my favorite, the if-then choice between the morning line’s third-favored turf choice and its favorite dirt track also-eligible.

Delve deeper into the reasoning and statistics behind my Gulfstream Park choices for Wednesday’s three richest races.

Wednesday’s Picks for Parx Racing

  • Race 1: This Round’s Mine 3/1 (win)
  • Race 5: Myhessexpress 9/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Bravo Regina 2/1 (win)

Although I couldn’t find a long-odds prospect in any of the three races I reviewed at Parx Racing, I did find underdogs in races 1 and 5 (second-favored and third favored, respectively). Of course, that practically required me to back the morning line choice in race 7, but whatcha gonna do.

The truth may be out there, but my reasons for the picks I made for the three races I reviewed for Parx Racing’s Wednesday fare are much closer.

My Wednesday Picks and Predictions for Tampa Bay Downs

  • Race 1: Chills and Fever 2/1 (win)
  • Race 3: Alpha Chi Rho 3/1 (win)
  • Race 3: Ticket to Alaska (sleeper)
  • Race 7: Cammack 5/2 (win)

I found two second-favored underdogs (races 1 and 3) and then followed them up with a morning-line favorite for race 7.

Oh, and I spotted a sleeper that could, just possibly, be a spoiler for the other hopefuls in race 3. Since that horse’s record is very much up-and-down, I make no recommendation, but I see it as a 50-50 shot hidden behind 6/1 morning line odds. I know what I’m gonna do.

Learn the numbers behind my choices for Wednesday’s three richest races at Tampa Bay Downs.
