Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Wednesday, including at Parx race track. We are still on fire with our picks; we have hit 59 winners in our last 132 races, profiting 88.9 units during this stretch. Let’s keep it rolling! Here are 4 runners whom we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races. It’s time to dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

3:15 pm Delaware Park (Race 5) – Ghost Hunter 5/2

Race 5 at Delaware Park is a $18,000 Claiming event over an extended mile on the turf in which a case can be made for many but it can prove best to side with the likely favorite Ghost Hunter who has won his last two races at this course. Jamie Ness’s gelding is an eleven-year-old now but he knows where the winning line is as is shown with no less than twenty four career victories and he continues to enjoy his racing more than ever. On his best form he was a Grade 3 winner and, although he is in his later years now, he can notch up three wins on the bounce at this course and show his rivals how it’s done.

3:45 pm Delaware Park (Race 6) – My Danny Boy 8/1

My Danny Boy is likely to be one of the outsiders in Race 6 at Delaware Park but he has won here and tries an Allowance Optional Claimer for the first time and that may be the level he is most comfortable at. That win here was in a Waiver Maiden Claimer just over a year ago but he has run some credible efforts in various grades since and may just find his niche in this company. There are question marks over the horses at the top of the market so My Danny Boy could upset the apple cart and go very well at a price.

4:15 pm Delaware Park (Race 7) – Goodbye Carolina 9/2

The penultimate race at Delaware Park is a $20,000 Claimer for Fillies and Mares and I like the look of Goodbye Carolina, who is beginning to find her stride as she gains more experience and can follow up her win at this course last time out. This daughter of Uncle Vinny has form figures of 331 from her last three starts and recorded her highest speed figure when having to come wide to win a Maiden Claimer by a neck over Estilo Elegante over an extended seven furlongs on her latest start. This step up to an extended mile is sure to suit and she has a nice inside draw in stall four so, with that in mind, she’s the one to side with in this contest.

4:45 pm Delaware Park (Race 8) – Santo 3/1

A $19,000 Maiden Claimer is the final race on Delaware Park’s Friday card and this one is for three-year-olds and upward over six furlongs on the dirt and Santo can take this. Although this gelding has yet to win a race he has been running well in defeat which include a couple of second placed efforts, one of which was in this grade at Tampa Bay, so I wouldn’t be writing him off just yet. That effort was four starts back and runs since has been a little inconsistent but if he can run close to that Tampa Bay second then he’ll be bang there from what is a perfect draw in stall two.
