Best Horse Racing Bets – Tuesday, October 13, 2020

| October 12, 2020 3:18 pm PDT

Indiana Grand Race Course, Parx Racing, and Thistledown Racino all contributed some solid opportunities for a payday today. Surprisingly, while Indiana Grand was the stingiest with the underdogs and the long-odds show ticket surprises, Parx and Thistledown made up for that with a couple of fourth-favored underdogs that should result in some happy-making finish-line performances.

Read on for the summary of my picks and predictions for Tuesday, October 13, 2020.

Good luck!

Today’s Predictions for Indiana Grand Race Course

  • Race 2: Win: Benny Boo Boo 8/5 (win)
  • Race 4: Win: Nates Heartthrob 2/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Win: Mishko 7/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Show: Snake Bite 15/1 (show)

I stuck pretty close to the morning line at Indiana Grand today, wandering away a bit only in race 7 to call it for the second-favored Mishko. That race also provided the only viable long-odds show wager for the day, the 15/1 Snake Bite.

Picks for Parx Racing

  • Race 7: Win: Ashraq 9/5 (win)
  • Race 8: Win: Breezy Gust 9/2 (win)
  • Race 8: Show: Aspen Xtreme 12/1 (show)
  • Race 9: Win: Blow the Whistle 7/2 (win)
  • Race 9: Show: Salt It Here 10/1 (show)

Unlike Indiana Grand, Parx Racing was a gold mine of underdogs and bargain show bets. I went with the M/L favorite in race 7, but in races 8 and 9 I chose the third-favored and fourth-favored entries, respectively. I didn’t find any longshots, so we’ll have to settle for show tickets on the 12/1 Aspen Xtreme (race 8) and the 10/1 Salt It Here (race 9). Hey, if it was easy, everybody’d be doing it.

My Tuesday Picks for Thistledown Racino

  • Race 5: Win: Dark Temptress 7/2 (win)
  • Race 6: Win: Dyna’s Holiday 5/2 (win)
  • Race 6: Show: Little Matilda 8/1 (show)
  • Race 7: Win: Buckeye Bullet 6/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Show: Mr. Pete 10/1 (show)

Thistledown was another pleasant surprise today in the underdog/long-odds department. I liked the second-favored entry in race 5, and the fourth-favored (at 6/1) entry in race 7. Race 6 was my only salute to the morning line, and I found some rather shortish long-odds contenders in both race 6 and race 7.
