Horse Racing picks for Parx race track on Monday, December 12: Classy Nancy is our fancy

Jockey Samy Camacho atop Mattys Express

There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Monday, including at Parx race track in Philadelphia. We have been in fine form with our picks for a long time now and we are up +225.62 units with our race selections to our recommended stakes dating back to August 5, 2021. Let’s keep it rolling!

Here are our best bets for today’s action at Parx race track.


12:22 pm ET Parx (Race 2) – Sandy Q 9/5 (2-star play)

Sandy Q faded tamely when 10th over 6 1/2 furlongs at Parx on her debut, but has delivered improved efforts in 2 subsequent starts, following up a 6-length 2nd in October with a 2 1/2 length 2nd just under 3 weeks ago.

She handles a wet track so any rain at Parx won’t effect the Hard Spun filly’s chances too much and with Jose Gomez up she looks up to helping trainer Robert E Reid Jr improve on his 22% strike-rate (40/178) at this meeting.  

2:10 pm ET Parx (Race 6) – Sweet Sugar Baby 8/5 (2-star play)

Sweet Sugar Baby broke her maiden over this trip at Finger Lakes in June and delivered a solid 2nd-place finish in an allowance over the same course and distance on her next start. She has run below that form since, including a well-held 5th at Finger Lakes in October, but gets a welcome drop to claiming company today.

With the track’s top jockey Ruben Silvera booked to ride, the daughter of Mission Impazzible looks up to doubling her career tally. 

2:37 pm ET Parx (Race 7) – Classy Nancy 9/5 (2-star play)

Classy Nancy impressed when delivering a wide-margin 11 1/2 length victory in a $25,000 maiden claiming race over a mile at Delaware Park in early October. She registered her best effort in 2 subsequent starts when 3 lengths 3rd in an allowance optional claimer at the same venue at the start of last month.

She has since registered a solid 48.40 4-furlong breeze at the Stanton track and, representing the top Parx trainer Jamie Ness, she looks up to registering a victory as she drops in trip.
