Best Horse Racing Bets for Thursday, March 4, 2021

| March 3, 2021 2:47 pm PDT

I went with Charles Town Races, Delta Downs, and Fair Grounds Race Course for my Thursday review tracks, and all three had plenty of underdogs as well as a couple of 8/1 sleepers to keep our wallets happy. I even found two 15/1 value show tickets for a little spice to add to the mix.

Let’s move on to the summary of my racing picks and predictions for Thursday, March 4, 2021.

Good luck!

Thursday’s Predictions for Charles Town Races

  • Race 5: Rockin Anna Rollin 5/2 (win)
  • Race 6: Power Forward 2/1 (win)
  • Race 6: Cameron Street 15/1 (show)
  • Race 7: Strong Heart 5/1 (win)

While I found myself agreeing with the morning line in race 5, I still managed to find a couple of underdogs at Charles Town, including a second-favored horse in race 6 (at 2/1) and a fourth-favored (at 5/1) in race 7.

And then there’s that 15/1 value show bet in race 7, which should help keep our bankrolls happy.

My Thursday Picks for Delta Downs

  • Race 3: Custom Pancho 7/2 (win)
  • Race 7: A.K.A. Grams 9/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Lil Eva Jane 8/1 (sleeper)
  • Race 8: Unwanted Intruder 4/1 (win)

It was underdogs all the way for me in the three races I assessed for Thursday at Delta Downs. I found second-favored winners in races 3 and 8 and a third-favored (at 9/2) in trace 7.

Not only that, but I discovered an 8/1 sleeper with a winner’s record in race 7.

Thursday Picks and Predictions for Fair Grounds Race Course

  • Race 5: Inajiffy 5/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Tulane Tryst 5/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Gulfstream Way 8/1 (sleeper)
  • Race 8: Raven’s Cry 5/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Stop War 15/1 (show)

Like the other two tracks, Fair Grounds served up two underdogs, although I did back the morning line favorite for race 8.

In race 5, I found a fourth-favored entry (at 5/1), and then I discovered a second-favored prospect in race 9 (also at 5/1).

Plus, I uncovered an 8/1 sleeper in race 7 — something of a rarity for a maiden race. Add in my value show bet recommendation at 15/1 in race 8, and it’s another good day at the races.

Check out the complete story behind my betting choices for the richest three races at Fair Grounds Race Course on Thursday.
