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 Monday, including at Parx race track. We are still absolutely on fire with our picks; a perfect 3-for-3 effort on Sunday means we have hit 57 winners in our last 126 races, profiting 87.9 units during this stretch. Let’s keep it rolling! Here are 3 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.

3:10pm Parx (Race 6) – Wentz 5/2

A seven-time course winner who has scored four times at Parx in 2021, most recently in today’s allowance grade over slightly shorter. He did make hard work of what should have been a comfortable task, however, and gave way tamely here last time. That was over six furlongs and today’s return to the mile is an obvious positive for Jamie Ness’s gelding. Today’s smaller field scenario will suit him much better and after a pleasing workout at Parx earlier this month, he can be expected to bounce back.

3:37pm Parx (Race 7) – Mongolian Hero 5/2

Just the two wins from 17 starts for this son of Midnight Lute, but he arrives in fantastic form. He went down narrowly in this grade at Parx back in May and although he disappointed on his next start, two subsequent efforts have seen him surge back to his best. Most recently, he was a game winner at Monmouth Park and, on paper, this should be no tougher for Nick Canani’s charge. He’s drawn well in gate three and has an excellent chance of going back to back.

4:31pm Parx (Race 9) – Chateau 2/1

 Rob Atras’s six-year-old won the Grade 3 Tom Fool Handicap at Aqueduct earlier this year and has remained in great form since, including a fourth in the Grade 3 Carter Handicap. This is a big drop in grade for this classy campaigner and he comfortably sets the form standard. Six furlongs is his optimum distance and he’s going to be very tough to beat under Kendrick Carmouche, who is four from nine at Parx this year.
