Horse Racing picks for Parx race track on Monday, May 23: Princess Cupid can strike

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 Parx. We have been on fire with our picks for a long time now and are up +289.65 units with our race selections to our recommended stakes dating back to August 5, 2021. Yesterday we had winners at 5/2 and 8/5 at Santa Anita, so let’s keep it rolling!

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

1:49 pm Parx (Race 3) – Smokey White 2/1 (2-star play)

Smokey White has demonstrated good form in 4 starts, including 2 since joining his current stable. He debuted for the Guadalupe Preciado barn with an 11-length 4th in a $50,000 maiden optional claiming contest at Gulfstream Park in March before racing prominently prior to drawing 6 1/4 lengths clear in the stretch to take a $40,000 maiden claimer over 6 1/2 furlongs at Parx last month. The extra distance today should suit and he is taken to complete a double.  

3:37 pm Parx (Race 7) – Princess Cupid 5/2 (2-star play)

Princess Cupid made all the running when taking a starter optional claiming contest over an extended 5 furlongs at Gulfstream Park in February. She subsequently suffered a disqualification and was placed 3rd, and performed well when 3rd having faded late on over a mile at the same venue the following month.

The 7-furlong trip today looks likely to suit and the daughter of Cupid can help jockey Silvestre Gonzalez to improve on his 20% strike-rate (53/261) at this meeting.

4:31 pm Parx (Race 9) – Fortheluvofbourbon 2/1 (2-star play)

Fortheluvofbourbon registered win number 7 when taking a state-bred stakes contest over 7 furlongs at this venue last month and while the Bourbon Grange gelding could finish only 6th in a stakes event over this course and distance previously, it’s notable that he’d won by 4 1/2 lengths in an allowance over this trip 3 starts back. Jockey Kendrick Carmouche is booked to ride and the pair are selected to complete a double for owners Smart Angle LLP and trainer Michael V Pino.
