Best Horse Racing Bets for Monday, September 28, 2020

| September 28, 2020 1:04 am PDT

I’ll be straight with you: Today was not a great day in Underdogs & Longshots History—at least not for the three tracks I chose to cover for Monday.

Of those three tracks—Indiana Grand Race Course, Parx Racing, and Thistledown Racino—Parx was the most forthcoming with the hidden moneymakers. Hats off to Parx!

Still, I managed to find some good opportunities to improve our bankrolls at all three, so read on for a summary of my predictions and picks for today’s selected horse races.

Good luck!

My Picks for Indiana Grand Race Course Today

  • Race 2: Azipass 4/1 (win)
  • Race 7: Harlan’s Princess 7/2 (win)
  • Race7: Revs Run 30/1 (show)
  • Race 8: Diamonds Are A 5/1 (win)

Indiana Grand was actually more generous with the hidden opportunities than my intro might suggest. I picked the third-favored to win in Race 2, for example, and the fourth-favored in race 8.

Sure, I may have backed the morning line fave in race 7, but then I spotted that sweet 30/1 longshot with a solid chance to finish in the money in that race, and all was forgiven.

Predictions and Tips for Monday Races at Parx Racing

  • Race 7: Hockey Puck 4/1 (win, Pick 3)
  • Race 7: Jump for Alex 8/1 (show)
  • Race 8: Flat Out Beautiful 2/1 (win, Pick 3)
  • Race 8: Flat Out Beautiful, Forest Fire, Yes It’s Roo (trifecta, 5-4-1)
  • Race 9: Isabella Smile 3/1 (win, Pick 3)
  • Race 9: Mini Scoop 10/1 (show)

Parx was—comparatively, at least—my go-to track for moneymaking wagers. I picked the fourth-favored in race 7, and while I stuck with the morning line favorites for both race 8 and race 9, I found a good trifecta combination in race 8 to brighten our day.

Oh, and I found some smaller long-odds show ticket possibilities in races 7 and 9. Plus, I found a nice Pick 3 wager for races 7, 8, and 9 to round out the day’s betting festivities.

My Picks for Thistledown Racino for Monday

  • Race 1: Win: Blistering Pakshi 3/1 (win)
  • Race 5: Win: Nan’s Rose 7/2 (win)
  • Race 8: Win: Tom T 3/1 (win)

I pretty much listened carefully to the morning line here and wagered as instructed, going with the favorites in both race 1 and race 8. I disobeyed in race 5, however, finding the third-favored entry much more to my liking. Sorry, no longshot moneymakers at Thistledown today.
