Best Horse Racing Bets – Wednesday, October 7, 2020

| October 7, 2020 1:16 am PDT

All three of the tracks I’m covering today offer some good wagering options. Indiana Grand, for example, is featuring four ungraded stakes races on their ten-race schedule, but Parx and Thistledown also step up with some moneymaking opportunities of their own for Wednesday betting.

We’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s move on to my horse racing best bets for Wednesday, October 7, 2020.

Good luck!

Today’s Best Bets for Indiana Grand Race Course

  • Race 6: Unbridled Class 4/1 (win)
  • Race 6: Ever Wonder 10/1 (show)
  • Race 7: Magical Peapod 9/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Pretty Assets 15/1 (show)
  • Race 8: Flatter Hymn 7/2 (win)
  • Race 9: Redskiesatnight 6/1 (win)
  • Race 9: Plainfield 15/1 (show)

Each of the four stakes races at Indiana Grand today is holding out a $75,000 purse for the winners, and I found underdogs in all four worthy of win tickets. My choice for race 6 is the third-favored, races 7 and 8 revealed two second-favored entries, and race 9 presented me with a solid 6/1 underdog I believe will take the winner’s share of that $75,000 purse.

My Wednesday Best Bets for Parx Racing

  • Race 2: Just a Thought 8/5 (win, if running)
  • Race 2: Memory Bouquet 9/2 (win, otherwise)
  • Race 4: Jumpintoaction 2/1 (win)
  • Race 8: Democratic Norms 6/5 (win)

Parx was a little skimpy with the long-odds prospects as well as underdogs, but in race 2, I found a potential underdog worth a win bet—but only if Just a Thought does not start. Frankie Pennington is the named jockey for both the 2/2X coupled entries, but only Just a Thought is worth a win bet. If Pennington rides the 2X entry—Smokum Peace Pipe—switch your win bet to Memory Bouquet.

My Choices for Today at Thistledown Racino

  • Race 2: Flat Calm 3/1 (win)
  • Race 5: Circus Rings 5/2 (win)
  • Race 5: I’m Feeling Lucky 10/1 (show)
  • Race 7: Funnel Cake 5/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Coincidentally 10/1 (show)

I found an underdog to root for in race 2, but otherwise, I stuck with the morning line for my winners. I did, however, find a couple of longer-odds bargain show bets in races 5 and 7. Not longshots, by any means, but 10/1 pays off nicely.
