Best Horse Racing Bets for Wednesday, March 3, 2021

| March 2, 2021 2:48 pm PDT

I went with Delta Downs, Mahoning Valley Race Course, and Parx Racing for my three tracks to assess for our Wednesday wagering entertainment.

Mahoning Valley was the most forthcoming with underdogs and value show bets, although the other two tracks weren’t all that stingy when it came to sleepers and other assorted upsets.

Read on for the summary of my picks and predictions for the likely moneymakers for Wednesday, March 3, 2021.

Good luck!

Delta Downs Predictions for Wednesday

  • Race 2: Sheriff Brown 6/5 (win)
  • Race 2: Langs Day 15/1 (show)
  • Race 4: Cool Spring 7/5 (win)
  • Race 4: Lady Rad 5/1 (sleeper)
  • Race 7: Turn On the Magic 8/5 (win)
  • Race 7: Muffin Nuts 8/1 (sleeper)

Delta Downs definitely has plenty of sleepers and show ticket surprises in store for us Wednesday — which is a relief since I found myself agreeing with the morning line in all three of the races I reviewed.

Despite that, I found a 5/1 sleeper in race 4 with a solid chance for a win and an 8/1 sleeper likewise viable for a win.

Oh, and don’t overlook that 15/1 value show ticket in race 2.

Wednesday’s Picks for Mahoning Valley Race Course

  • Race 3: Kettle King 7/2 (win)
  • Race 6: Act Like a Lady 3/1 (win)
  • Race 6: Lucky to Have Me 12/1 (show)
  • Race 8: Big Al’s Express 5/1 (win)

My shortlist of picks belies the multitude of underdogs I discovered at Mahoning Valley for Wednesday’s predictions.

You’ll find a second-favored underdog in race 3 and then two third-favored entries in races 6 and 8 (at 3/1 and 5/1, respectively).

Throw in that 12/1 value show bet in race 6, and we’ve got a pretty good day at the races.

My Wednesday Picks and Predictions for Parx Racing

  • Race 1: Don’t Recall 9/5 (win)
  • Race 9: Indian Lake 3/1 (win)
  • Race 10: Iywaan 2/1 (win)
  • Race 10: Pennsylvania Steel 20/1 (show)

Parx Racing was mostly morning-line favorites, although I did find a second-favored (3/1) underdog in race 9.

And of course, let’s not forget that 20/1 longshot I discovered in race 10 that is well worth a show wager.
