Horse Racing picks for Parx race track on Tuesday, May 17: Hollywood Jet can play lead role

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 Tuesday, including at Parx. We have been on fire with our picks for a long time now and are up +288.25 units with our race selections to our recommended stakes dating back to August 5, 2021. On Sunday we went 3-for-3, making +13 units of profit, and 5/2 Parx winner Factor This In added to the pot on Monday.

Let’s keep it rolling!

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

2:43 pm Parx (Race 5) – Golden Eib Micrphn 5/2 (2-star play)

Golden Eib Micrphn looks like she could use a few more letters in her name, but she got off the mark at the first attempt when impressively winning over 5 furlongs at Delaware Park back in August of last year, and has acquitted herself well in 3 starts since.

A well-held 3rd in a $25,000 starter optional claimer at Parx on her penultimate start, she was a 6 1/2 length 3rd in a small field over 6 furlongs at Penn National last month. Reunited with jockey Jamie Rodriguez today, this Keen Ice filly looks capable of doubling her career tally.

4:04 pm Parx (Race 8) – Hollywood Jet 2/5 (3-star play)

Hollywood Jet looks capable of overcoming a wide draw, as he did when racing from the #9 gate in winning a minor stakes contest over 6 furlongs at Parx on his penultimate start. He followed up with an all-the-way victory in a $12,500 starter optional claiming contest over 6 1/2 furlongs on a sloppy track early last month.

Regular pilot Luis M Ocasio is booked to ride and the son of Uncaptured looks capable of registering his 7th consecutive victory.

4:58 pm Parx (Race 10) – Jebologist 7/2 (2-star play)

Jebologist placed 2nd in a couple of $16,000 claiming races at Laurel, including when beaten 3 lengths on a good main track at that venue last month.

Switching to this track appeared to suit him when he made all to win by 4 lengths in a $16,000 starter optional claiming event over 7 furlongs earlier this month. The son of Gemologist is taken to complete a double as he drops back in distance for the track’s top handler Jamie Ness.
