Horse Racing picks for Delaware Park on Monday, August 9: Proper Manners is the proper play

Scott Spieth atop Silverly Enough wins the eighth race of the day at Tampa Bay Downs.

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Monday, including at Delaware Park race track. We’ve had seven winners from our last 12 picks, and that adds up to a cool profit of 10.2 units if staking 1 unit per horse. Let’s try to keep that streak going — here are three runners who 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) – Proper Manners 2/1

Demonstrated good form when racing in Florida earlier this year completing a hat-trick when victorious by one-and-three-quarter-lengths in a starter allowance event over five furlongs on turf at the start of May. Had to give best to a favourite who made all on her return to this venue in an allowance optional claimer in June but looks capable of returning to winning ways on the back of a 37.40 three furlong breeze on the main track here earlier this month.

3:45 pm Delaware Park (Race 6) – Free To Fly 2/1

Finished in the first two in all nine starts to date including when completing a double in taking a starter optional claimer by a length over six furlongs on the main track at Monmouth Park last month. Previously won a starter allowance at Parx by three lengths on his return from a stint in Florida and with Paco Lopez booked to ride once more is taken to make his first start at this track since June 2019 a winning one.

4:15 pm Delaware Park (Race 7) – Cairo Campaign 7/2

Had been in good form since debuting last August finishing on the board in all seven starts prior to a disappointing fifth switched to allowance optional claiming company at Gulfstream Park in April. Put that effort behind him switched to this track when going down by half-a-length in a five furlong allowance on turf. Challenged three wide that day having been drawn widest of all and having drawn the inside post position can go one better for trainer Kelsey Danner.
