Horse Racing picks for Parx race track on Monday, September 20: Stay in your Midlaner

Horse Racing

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Monday, including at Parx race track. 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.

3:10 pm Parx (Race 6) – Royal Coup 5/1

He’s won just three of his 29 starts, but two of those have come at Parx. The latter was his most recent start at the venue, winning in today’s $22,000 grade. Two subsequent starts at Monmouth have been fairly disappointing, but a return to Parx should help matters. Cutting back to six furlongs is another interesting move and gate one will help Dexter Haddock gain the perfect position through the race. He’ll be doing all his best work late on and has an excellent chance of adding to his tally.

4:04 pm Parx (Race 8) – Midlaner 2/1

A dual Parx winner, he gained the second of those victories last time in a starter optional claiming event. This is a step up in grade, but he went very close in a $45,000 allowance contest back in July and that sort of form would make him very difficult to beat in this company. He should get a strong pace to aim, which will suit him as a deep closer, and Penny Pearce has his runners in fantastic form. 36% of his last 25 runners have scored and this gelding looks set to add to that record.

4:31 pm Parx (Race 9) – Galerio 9/5

Jamie Ness’s five-year-old is a nine-time winner and a class act at this sort of level. He was a winner at Pimlico in May and followed up that victory with good efforts in the Grade 3 Salvator Mile and Battery Park Stakes. Most recently, he pulled a long way clear with the winner in an allowance optional claimer at Colonial Downs. On paper, this is an easier contest and he has the perfect draw in gate one. If he gets away well, he’s going to be extremely tough to catch under Ruben Silvera.
