Horse Racing picks for Parx race track on Monday, May 9: Keep Secret Alliance on your side
There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Monday, including at Parx race track. We have been on fire with our picks for a long time now, and are up +276.25 units with our race selections to our recommended stakes dating back to August 5. Let’s keep it rolling!
Here are our best bets for today’s action at Parx.
3:37 pm ET Parx (Race 7) – Irie Empress 3/1 (2-star play)
Irie Empress finished runner-up on 4 of her first 5 starts, including when beaten 3 3/4 lengths into 2nd in a $40,000 maiden claimer over 6 furlongs at Parx on her penultimate start.
She got off the mark when switched to a maiden special weight over 7 furlongs at the end of March, and the drop in trip is no issue. She is taken to defy a wide draw to complete a double for trainer Herold O Whylie with regular pilot Dexter Haddock again in the saddle.
4:31 pm ET Parx (Race 9) – Secret Alliance 2/1 (2-star play)
Secret Alliance broke his maiden at the third time of asking when registering a 3-length victory in a maiden special weight over 6 furlongs at this venue in February. He raced close to the pace that day and employed similar tactics when 5th, having faded late on in a mile and 1/8th stakes contest at Laurel last month.
The drop in trip today is a positive and he can help jockey Kendrick Carmouche improve on his impressive 32% strike-rate (14/44) at this meet.
4:58 pm ET Parx (Race 10) – Tiz Gracie 5/2 (2-star play)
Tiz Gracie has shown good form of late, including when finishing on the board in a couple of starter events at this venue. She was beaten 3/4 of a length into 2nd over this trip last month, but delivered an improved figure on that occasion.
With Frankie Pennington, on board for the mare’s last 3 starts, again in the saddle, the daughter of budget sire Talent Search is taken to registering a 4th career success and her first since joining the Scott Lake barn.

Race 9: 2, 4
