Best Horse Racing Bets for Wednesday, October 28, 2020

| October 27, 2020 3:21 pm PDT

Indiana Grand came through for me today in spades with four ungraded stakes races full of underdogs and longshot prospects to make any track-rat happy.

Even Churchill Downs had a 20/1 longshot for my favorite bargain show bet. Unfortunately for me, it was Parx Racing’s turn, apparently, to turn off the spigot of underdogs and long-odds prospects, but even so, they coughed up a single underdog (race 10) and a rather weak 12/1 long-odds possibility.

Read on for an overview of all of my tips, predictions, and picks for Wednesday, October 28, 2020.

Good luck!

Wednesday’s Picks and Predictions for Churchill Downs

  • Race 6: Shashashakemeup 8/5 (win)
  • Race 7: Santa Cruiser 5/2 (if starts)
  • Race 7: Lake Mamba 3/1 (otherwise)
  • Race 9: Coilean Bawn 7/2 (win)
  • Race 9: Brunella 20/1 (show)

While I stuck by the morning line for races 6 and 7, I found a 7/2 underdog in race 9 worth a win ticket. You’ll notice I have an either-or in race 7, with an also-eligible for my first choice (if he starts) and a second choice if that doesn’t happen.

Then there’s that juicy 20/1 longshot that should bring home some show money in race 9.

Today’s Predictions for Indiana Grand Race Course

  • Race 7: Hungarian Princess 2/5 (win)
  • Race 7: American Rules 20/1 (show/across the board)
  • Race 9: Unbridled Class 4/1 (win)
  • Race 9: Prescience 30/1 (show)
  • Race 10: Betsdownletsride 1/5 (win)
  • Race 11: Unbridled Beast 1/1 (win)
  • Race 11: Forwhomthebelltoll 30/1 (show)

Indiana Grand had a 12-race schedule today, including four ungraded stakes races–so naturally, I went with reviews of those stakes matches. I only differed with the morning line favorites once, in race 9, but I found solid bargain show bets in races 7, 9, and 11. One of those is the 20/1 longshot in race 7, which is probably worth an across the board bet.

My Picks Today for Parx Racing

  • Race 1: Company Clown 8/5 (win)
  • Race 8: Principino 5/2 (win)
  • Race 10: Pitching Ari 7/2 (win)
  • Race 10: Market Mover 12/1 (show)

Parx was not particularly generous with value show tickets, but I did find a second-favored underdog in race 10. Other than that, I was the morning line’s BFF.
