Parx Racing Picks – Wednesday, February 24, 2021

| February 23, 2021 2:52 pm PDT

Parx Racing brings us 11 mostly bread-and-butter claiming races, although all three of the richest runs are starter races.

After what seems like weeks, Bensalem, Pennsylvania, will enjoy a mostly sunny day Wednesday, with highs in the fifties and winds around 12 mph — all of which should de-sloppify the tracks a bit.

Remember that while I review the three richest races here, you can find Parx Racing’s entire 11-race card for Wednesday — including entries, jockeys, morning line odds, and wagering options — at one of our recommended horse racing betting sites.

Read on for my Parx Racing picks and betting tips for Wednesday, February 24, 2021.

Pick for Race 6 at Parx Racing

This is a starter optional claiming race for three-year-old fillies running a distance of six furlongs for a purse of $25,000.

With the contenders so evenly matched, this should be a tight race, but I’m still calling the win for the 5/2 morning line favorite — Hay Nineteen, ridden by Jaime Rodriguez. This filly moneyed two of her three career starts, breaking her maiden in her first race back in December and then a second-place finish in January.

The longest odds in this seven-horse race are 10/1, and those odds are not long enough to warrant risking a show bet, not against this field.

  •  Win: Hay Nineteen 5/2

Pick for Race 9 at Parx Racing

This is a starter optional claiming race for four-year-olds and upward running a distance of 6-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $25,000.

I like the top half of the 2/2X coupled entry (which also happens to be the 9/5 morning line favorite) — Mr. Roundtree, with Angel Castillo in the irons. This five-year-old gelding moneyed eight of his 11 career starts, winning two.

I don’t see any entries in this match — including the two 20/1 longshots — that are worth the risk of a show ticket, so no value bets for us.

  •  Win: Mr. Roundtree 9/5

Pick for Race 10 at Parx Racing

This is a starter allowance race for four-year-olds and upward running a distance of 6-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $22,000.

I’m going with the second-favored (4/1) entry in this race — Manolete, ridden by Silvestre Gonzalez. This seven-year-old finished in the money for 25 of his 48 career starts, winning 15.

None of the longer-odds entries in this race look likely to make it to the finish line in time for payday.

  •  Win: Manolete 4/1
