Best Horse Racing Bets for Tuesday, October 20, 2020

| October 19, 2020 3:01 pm PDT

Of the nine races I reviewed for Tuesday from Indiana Grand Race Course, Parx Racing, and Thistledown Racino, I found a trifecta, two across-the-boards, and several longshots to make my bankroll happy.

Parx Racing was the surprise of the day–for the past several race-days, Parx has provided few opportunities for bargain show bets or underdogs at profitable morning lines, but today they offered up a trifecta, an across-the-board prospect, and a solid underdog moneymaker.

Thistledown may only have eight races scheduled, but they made up for that with some solid underdogs and a tasty across-the-board prospect.

And Indiana Grand offered up a solid 30/1 longshot as well as an underdog to root for in race 9.

So let’s get to it—read on for a summary of my picks and predictions for Tuesday, October 20, 2020.

Good luck!

Tuesday’s Picks and Tips for Indiana Grand Race Course

  • Race 5: Our Neighbor Boys 7/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Private Union 7/5 (win)
  • Race 9: Mariah’s Princess 5/1 (win)
  • Race 9: Khozys Crown 30/1 (show)

I stuck with the morning line’s choices in races 5 and 7, but I found a third-favored underdog in race 9 that has a real chance. Plus, race 9 delivered a solid 30/1 longshot for a value show wager.

Picks for Parx Racing

  • Race 6: Magic Mule 3/1 (win)
  • Race 6: Magic Mule, Citizen West, Pategory One (trifecta, 2-3-1)
  • Race 8: Irish Cork 5/2 (win)
  • Race 9: Maythehorsebwithu 3/1 (win)
  • Race 9: Pensamiento 8/1 (across the board)

Parx had everything today except a good longshot, but I can forgive them because they had a second-favored prospect at 3/1 in race 6 that allowed me to build a profitable trifecta prediction for that race.

I then had to agree with the morning line for races 8 and 9 but I did find a good across-the-board wager in race 9 that made me smile.

My Tuesday Picks for Thistledown Racino

  • Race 4: Ohio Munny 7/2 (win)
  • Race 4: Master Volume 10/1 (show)
  • Race 5: It’s Official 7/2 (win)
  • Race 5: Khalfani 6/1 (across the board)
  • Race 7: Richiesinthehouse 8/5 (win)

Thistledown virtually bristled with underdogs, at least in race 4 (second-favored at 7/2) and race 5 (also at 7/2). I was forced to agree with the morning line in race 7 about the 8/5 favorite, but I did manage to find a modestly profitable 10/1 show bet in race 4, and a likewise modestly profitable across-the-board flyer in race 5.
