Read on for my Indiana Grand Race Course picks and tips for Tuesday, October 27, 2020.
Pick for Indiana Grand Race Course Race 2
This is a maiden special weight race for Indiana-bred and -sired two-year-olds running a distance of one mile for a purse of $35,000.
I’m in agreement with the morning line, so I’m buying a win ticket for the 8/5 favorite, Sudden Shift, with Albin Jimenez in the irons. This gelding moneyed two of his three career starts—both of them seconds.
Of the eight horses in this race, five are 20/1 or 30/1 longshots, and while I suppose anything is possible, in this race, I wouldn’t bet on it.
- Win: Sudden Shift 8/5
Picks for Indiana Grand Race Course Race 3
This is an allowance race for Indiana-bred three-year-olds and upward running a distance of six furlongs for a purse of $34,500.
I’m going to have to stick with the 1/1 favorite in this race—Prepare for Glory, with Deshawn Parker aboard. This three-year-old gelding finished in the money for two of his six career starts, winning one.
At 12/1, I believe Truckin’ On, ridden by Marcelino Pedroza, is a real contender. This three-year-old gelding broke his maiden on his single career start earlier this month.
- Win: Prepare for Glory 1/1
- Show: Truckin’ On 12/1
Pick for Indiana Grand Race Course Race 9
This is a maiden special weight race for Indiana-bred three-year-olds and upward running a distance of six furlongs for a purse of $33,000.
Looks like the morning line is right again, so I’m backing the 8/5 favorite—Flying Samurai, with Jermaine Bridgmohan in the irons. This three-year-old gelding finished in the money four of his six career starts.
None of the longshots in this race (no, not even the 50/1 longshot with the clever name of Even Money) is worth the risk.
- Win: Flying Samurai 8/5

Indiana Grand may have been stingy with the underdogs and the longshot moneymakers, but that doesn’t mean the other two tracks I reviewed today were likewise ungenerous:
