Read on for my Delta Downs picks and betting tips for Tuesday, March 9, 2021.

Pick for Race 2 at Delta Downs

This is a starter optional claiming race for four-year-olds and upward running a distance of seven furlongs for a purse of $24,000.

I like the 5/1 underdog in this race — Tabia, ridden by Alex Birzer. This six-year-old gelding moneyed 10 of his 20 career starts, winning six. Against the rest of this field, that’s leader-of-the-pack statistics.

I don’t see any longer-odds entries in this race that could finish in the money, so let’s save ours.

  •  Win: Tabia 5/1

Picks for Race 5 at Delta Downs

This is a maiden special weight race for fillies and mares three years old and upward running a distance of 6-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $37,000.

I’m sticking with the 2/1 favorite in this race — Hallajoori, with Joel Dominguez in the irons. This four-year-old filly moneyed in six of her career starts and has comparatively superior speed figures versus the rest of this field.

At 12/1, Blue Ridge Moon, with Emanuel Nieves aboard, looks like a good value show wager. This three-year-old filly moneyed two of her four career starts and has shown good performance levels in recent workouts, as well as chalked up competitive speed figures.

  •  Win: Hallajoori 2/1
  •  Show: Blue Ridge Moon 12/1

Picks for Race 6 at Delta Downs

This is an allowance race for fillies and mares four years old and upward running a distance of 6-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $39,000.

I agree with the morning line here, and my money’s on the 6/5 favorite — Shi O’Shi, ridden by Diego Saenz. This four-year-old filly finished in the money for four of her five career starts, winning two.

And at 12/1, I like Queen Gigi, with Luis Batista aboard, for a value show ticket. This four-year-old filly moneyed four of her eight career starts, winning two.

  •  Win: Shi O’Shi 6/5
  •  Show: Queen Gigi 12/1
