Best Horse Racing Bets for Tuesday, June 15, 2021

| June 15, 2021 5:52 am PDT

You’ll find some very interesting underdogs among the contenders for my thoroughbred racing picks for Tuesday.

I found my choices at Indiana Grand Race Course, Mountaineer Racetrack, and Parx Racing. You might want to pay particular attention to the 6/1 sleeper I found at Parx Racing in race ten.

Remember that you can always find all the races at my chosen tracks with a quick visit to any of the best horse racing wagering sites.

Good luck!

Betting Picks for Indiana Grand Race Course

Starting on the main track with race three—one mile and 70 yard run for Indiana-bred fillies and mares three years old and upward—I’m betting on the second-favored (at 5/2) Dontyouremember, ridden by Marcelino Pedroza.

This four-year-old filly has moneyed eight of her 15 career starts, winning one—and she wasn’t working simple claiming or allowance races either.

She had a string of third-place finishes in Black Type stakes races. This includes the Hoosier Breeders Sophomore Stakes, the Ellen’s Lucky Star Stakes, and the Indiana First Lady Stakes last summer at Indiana Grand.

The thoroughbred Swiss Army knife of married couples—Michael E and Penny S. Lauer—are behind Dontyouremember’s success. The couple are the filly’s breeders; Michael is the trainer, while Penny handles the ownership responsibilities.

Incidentally, the couple fulfills those same functions with the 9/5 favorite in this race—Everyotherwon.

Moving on to race five, a one-mile and 70 yards run for Indiana-bred three-year-olds and upward. I’m calling it for the 2/1 morning line favorite, El Bohemio.

This four-year-old gelding has the best record in this seven-horse field: 15 money finishes in 22 career starts, with three wins. Also helping him is the apprentice allowance his jockey, Albert Lopez brings to the team.

Ranked among the top 100 trainers each of the past four years, Genaro Garcia trains El Bohemio for owners Southwest Racing Stables and Steve H. Lewis.

Switching to the turf for race six—a one-mile grass run for fillies and mares three years old and upward—I’m buying a win ticket on the second-favored Bloody Mary Mornin at 7/2.

This six-year-old mare finished in the money 19 of her 28 career starts, winning six.

Owner-trainer Randy Matthews has tapped jockey Rodney A. Prescott to fill the irons aboard Bloody Mary Mornin for this run.

My Tuesday Picks for Mountaineer Racetrack

Starting on the turf with race two, a one-mile grass run for fillies and mares three years old and upward, I’m backing the 3/1 morning-line favorite, Happy Bee.

This four-year-old filly finished in the money three of her seven career starts.

This gives her a statistical advantage over the rest of this 12-horse field.

Owner-trainer Jay P. Bernardini, who has been ranked in the top 100 trainers in wins for the past five years, has jockey Guillermo Rodriguez aboard for this race.

We switch back on the main track for race seven, a 5-1/2 furlong run for fillies and mares three years old and upward. I’m laying my money down for the 4/5 morning-line favorite, Oneprettything, ridden by top jockey Luis H. Colon.

This eight-year-old mare finished in the money five of her seven career starts, winning three.

Osborne Smith trains Oneprettything for owner Matthew Binning. Smith has put Colon aboard for Oneprettything’s two most recent races—both wins.

Race eight is a one-mile main track claiming race for three-year-olds and upward. My money is on the second-favored Dream Saturday (at 4/1), with Noel Vigil in the irons.

This ten-year-old gelding moneyed 39 of his 78 career starts, winning 19. That gives him the best statistical record in this ten-horse field. His speed figures have remained consistently high his entire career, and his recent workouts show he can still bring it. He’ll do.

Owner-trainer Dennis Van Meter had Noel Vigil aboard Dream Saturday for his most recent start, a May 31 claiming race on the main track that resulted in a disappointing fifth-place also-ran. Not great news, but he still compares favorably to the other top contenders.

Tuesday’s Picks for Parx Racing

I’m starting with race two at Parx—a one-mile and 70 yards main track run for three-year-olds and upward. My money is on the second-favored (at 7/2) Midnight Act, ridden by Abner Adorno.

This five-year-old gelding moneyed 27 of his 36 career starts, winning eight.

He’s placed second in all seven of his 2021 runs; both his record and speed figures compare favorably to those of the morning-line favorite.

Midnight Act’s trainer, Flint W. Stites, has been ranked among the top 100 trainers for wins for 15 of the past 21 years. Midnight Act is owned by James and Kelly Davis.

Race six is a 6-1/2 furlong main track run for three-year-olds and upward. My win ticket is on the 2/1 morning line favorite, La Wuan.

This six-year-old gelding finished in the money 25 of his 46 career starts, winning 14. His speed figures are consistently high, and his recent workout times are equally encouraging.

Ernesto Padilla-Preciado—who picked up his first professional win just last October with Kingsville—trains La Wuan for owners John E. Parker and Mike Pimentel. Padilla-Preciado has had Jeremy Laprida in the irons aboard La Wuan for his last four starts, two of which resulted in wins.

For race ten, a mile-and-70-yards main track run for three-year-olds and upward, I’m betting my two dollars on one of the fourth-favored entries (two at 6/1) in this race—Irish Cork, ridden by Ruben Silvera. While there are more experienced jockeys in this race, there is no horse in this race with a record comparable to Irish Cork’s.

This four-year-old gelding finished in the money for 14 of his 15 career starts, winning five. For comparison, the morning-line favorite finished in the money nine of his 18 starts, winning six.

Also, Irish Cork has posted triple-digit speed figures in four of his five most recent races.

John C. Servis, who campaigned Smarty Jones for the 2004 Triple Crown (only to miss it with a second-place finish in the Belmont Stakes), trains Irish Cork for Irish Three Racing, LLC.
