There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Wednesday, including at Delaware Park race track. Here are three runners whom we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races. Let’s dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

1:15 pm Delaware Park (Race 1) – You Are Awesome +200

The selection has finished held in his two most recent starts including in a starter optional claimer at Pimlico last month. There is reason to expect a much improved performance however with his claiming race sixth over a mile on turf at Aqueduct prior to that coming in a stronger event that this. Prior to that he’d registered a victory over six-and-one-half-furlongs at Charles Town and he is taken to record a third career success.

2:45 Delaware Park (Race 4) – Galilee +200

An expensive $475,000 yearling purchase has placed on two of his three starts to date following up a second in a six furlong maiden claiming event at Oaklawn Park with a third in a waiver maiden claiming contest over the same course and distance in April. Debuting for a new stable here the Pioneerof The Nile gelding is taken to break his maiden coming into this on the back of a 52.80 four furlong breeze here a week ago.

3:15 pm Delaware Park (Race 5) – Hauntedbythemusic +200

The selection has won or placed on all four starts so far this year including when runner-up in an allowance race over xi furlongs on his return to this track at the end of last month. Prior to that he’d been racing at Tampa Bay Downs including when third in a minor stakes there on his penultimate start and he is taken to double his career tally with Alexander Cirispin booked to ride for Baltazar Galvan.
