Read on for my tips, picks, and predications for horse racing at Indiana Grand today.
Pick for Indiana Grand Race Course Race 2
This is an allowance race for Indiana-bred and sired fillies and mares three years old and upward running a distance of 5-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $37,000.
I like the third-favored (4/1) entry here—Azipass, with top jockey Deshawn Parker in the irons. This three-year-old filly won her single career start, and her current workout records indicate she has no intention of quitting while she’s ahead.
There are several longer-odds horses in this race, but I don’t see any likely to surprise us with a money finish.
- Win: Azipass 4/1
Picks for Indiana Grand Race Course Race 7
This is a maiden special weight race for two-year-old Indiana-bred fillies running a distance of six furlongs for a purse of $33,000.
I’m sticking with the 7/2 morning line favorite in this race—Harlan’s Princess, with Thomas Pompell aboard. Like most of the competitors in this field, this filly has no starts on record, but her recent workouts show good performance in longer breezes.
In a maiden race for two-year-olds, I consider odds in the longshot category—20/1 or longer—to be worth a show bet. There are three fillies at 30/1 in this race, and I think the best choice among them for that sort of wager is Revs Run, ridden by veteran jockey Jose Montano. This filly may not have a record for racing, but Montano certainly does—he’s by far the winningest jockey in this race.
- Win: Harlan’s Princess 7/2
- Show: Revs Run 30/1
Pick for Indiana Grand Race Course Race 8
This is an allowance race for fillies and mares three years old and upward running a distance of one mile on turf for a purse of $34,500.
I like the fourth-favored (5/1) Diamonds Are A, ridden by top jockey Albin Jimenez. I’m a little concerned that this three-year-old filly’s two 2020 starts were not in the money, but with Jimenez aboard, I believe she will turn in the best performance she can—which should more than suffice against this unimpressive field.
The longest-odds in this race are 10/1, and I don’t see a happy ending for that entry.
- Win: Diamonds Are A 5/1
