Indiana Grand Betting Picks – Wednesday, August 19, 2020

| August 19, 2020 2:13 am PDT

Indiana Grand Race Course in Shelbyville, Indiana brings us a ten-race card of thoroughbred matches on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, and I have the best bets for the richest races.

The forecast for Wednesday in Shelbyville, Indiana is sunny skies, a slight chance of rain, temps in the low 80s, and winds around eight mph.

I cover the three richest races here, but you can always find the full card of Indiana Grand’s races, including entries, jockeys, and betting options, at our recommended horse racing betting sites.

Post time for the first race Wednesday at Indiana Grand is 2:20 PM (EDT), so let’s get right to my horse racing predictions.

Picks for Indiana Grand Race 5

This is a maiden special weight race for Indiana Grand Race Course for three-year-olds and upward running six furlongs for a purse of $31,000.

I like the second favored (3/1) entry in this race: Rob the Rich, with Rodney Prescott aboard. This three-year-old gelding moneyed in three of his four career starts.

I also like the 20/1 longshot Bold Adventure, ridden by Malcom Franklin for a show ticket. This four-year-old gelding moneyed two of his five career starts.

  • Win: Rob the Rich 3/1
  • Show: Bold Adventure 20/1

Picks for Indiana Grand Race 6

This is an allowance race for three-year-olds and upward running 1-1/16 miles on turf. The purse is $32,500.

Go ahead and bet the 4/1 morning line favorite to win: Logical Myth, ridden by Declan Carroll. This four-year-old gelding finished in the money five of his 13 career starts, winning three of them. Plus, Carroll is the winningest jockey in this race.

Still, I like an across-the-board wager on the 20/1 longshot Toss of Fate, with Malcom Franklin aboard. This four-year-old gelding moneyed nine of his 13 career starts and won four of them.

  • Win: Logical Myth 4/1
  • Across-the-Board: Toss of Fate 20/1

Pick for Indiana Grand Race 8

This is a maiden special weight race for Indiana-bred fillies and mares three years old and upward running on turf for a distance of 1 mile to win a piece of the $35,000 purse.

I’m backing the morning line’s second-favored (5/2) entry: Naughty Justice, with Deshawn Parker in the irons. This three-year-old filly moneyed one of her three career starts, setting her statistically ahead of the favorite. Additionally, Parker has the best wins/WPS stats in this race.

Incidentally, with all those long odds, I would think there would be at least one payday among them. I would be wrong.

  • Win: Naughty Justice 5/2
