Best Horse Racing Bets for Wednesday, November 4, 2020

| November 3, 2020 1:57 pm PDT

While I was putting together Wednesday’s picks for the three tracks I selected — Churchill Downs, Indiana Grand Race Course, and Parx Racing — I got the feeling that I was just mirroring the morning line, but by the time I was finished, I saw that I’d actually picked more underdogs than favorites, so I guess I get to keep my Rebel Card a few more days.

More importantly, I spotted a few moneymakers and even a trifecta at Parx Racing that could make the difference between an okay day at the races and a very good day at the races.

Read on for an overview of my tips, picks and predictions for Wednesday, November 4, 2020.

Good luck!

Wednesday’s Picks for Churchill Downs

  • Race 3: Risky Reward 7/5 (win)
  • Race 6: Sail On Ellen 5/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Oak Hill 5/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Cash Logistics 30/1 (show/across the board)

Churchill Downs was stingy with value show bets but offered up a couple of solid underdogs (races 6 and 8).

The single longshot I found in race 8, however, turned out to be even better than I initially imagined: Cash Logistics has a record that should have put him at or near the top of the morning line’s choices. Ah well, the morning line’s oversight is our bankroll’s delight, eh?

My Wednesday Predictions for Indiana Grand Race Course

  • Race 6: Nates Heartthrob 9/5 (win)
  • Race 6: Fashion Nugget 12/1 (show)
  • Race 8: Benny Boo Boo 9/2 (win)
  • Race 10: Cash for Gold 4/1 (win)

Indiana Grand was surprisingly devoid of bargain show bets, yielding only a weak 12/1 show wager in race 6. They did, however, offer us the opportunity to make win bets on a third-favored (race 8) and even a fourth-favored horse (race 10), so all is forgiven.

My Parx Racing Picks for Wednesday

  • Race 5: Adhwaa 3/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Rock On Luke 8/5 (win)
  • Race 9: Wicked Awesome 9/5 (win)
  • Race 9: Wicked Awesome, Dreamer’s Moon, Promised Storm (trifecta, 5-7-4)

I actually agreed with the morning line at Parx Racing more often than not, only wagering on a second-favored entry in trace 5. Races 8 and 9 were the morning line’s favorites all the way, but I did spot a trifecta waiting to happen there, so I’m happy.
