Best Horse Racing Bets for Monday, September 21, 2020

| September 21, 2020 12:43 am PDT

I chose Louisiana Downs, Parx Racing, and Thistledown Racino for my horse racing predictions and picks today–and I’m glad I did.

I found a trifecta at Thistledown, some very juicy underdogs at Parx, and even a value longshot show bet at Thistledown. All in all, a good day at the races.

Now, let’s get to the summary of my picks and tips for all three tracks today.

Good luck!

My Picks for Parx Racing

  • Race 6: Thundershook 9/5 (win)
  • Race 6: Get the W 20/1 (show)
  • Race 8: National Honor 7/2 (win)
  • Race 8: Flat Bill 20/1 (show)
  • Race 9: Monaco Princess 5/1 (win)

Sure, I agreed with the morning line in race 6, but I also found a good longshot play in that match, and another in race 8. Additionally, I picked underdogs to win in races 8 and 9. 

Not too shabby for Parx Racing. Maybe it’s an end-of-summer blowout.

Today’s Predictions for Louisiana Downs

  • Race 5: Beyond d’Oro 7/2 (win)
  • Race 6: Alterana 7/2 (win)
  • Race 7: Sterling Miss 3/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Girl Thirsty 30/1 (show)

Pickings were a little lean for the races at Louisiana Downs today, but I did find a slight underdog to back in race 5. I echoed the morning line for races 6 and 7, but I did find a juicy 30/1 longshot for a value show ticket.

Best Bets at Thistledown Racino for Monday

  • Race 2: Mjolnir 5/2 (win)
  • Race 5: Going With Style 3/1 (win)
  • Race 5: Going With Style, Chief Randal, Bucket Beat (trifecta, 5-1-6)
  • Race 7: Candy Exchange 5/2 (win)

Any day I find a good trifecta to recommend is a good day for me, so I’m happy to report that Thistledown Racino has a lucrative trifecta wager in race 5. That’s partly due to my winner being a slight underdog, but also because the horse filling the “show” position of the trifecta is a 9/2 underdog, as well.

I guess it’s only fair that my choices in race 2 and race 7 were morning line favorites.
