There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Tuesday, including at Parx race track. We have been in fine form with our picks for a long time now and we are up +147.15 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.

Parx (Race 4) – Strugar 9/5 (2-star play)

Strugar showed good form when placing third, beaten two-and-a-quarter-lengths in a starter optional claimer at this venue early last month. He failed to shine when beating just one rival home in finishing eighth of nine over five-and-a-half-furlongs on turf at Laurel subsequently however. The return to the main track and step back up to seven furlongs are both in his favor, and switched to a claimer he looks up to delivering his fourth in of the year. 

3:14 pm Parx (Race 8) – Caughtandcollected 5/2 (2-star play)

The 3-year-old colt recorded his third career win when delivering a three-quarters-of-a-length victory in a starter optional claiming contest over this distance at Delaware Park last month. The son of Collected has shown winning form in a stronger event in the past when taking out an allowance optional claimer at Tampa Bay Downs in April and he looks up to making his first start for new trainer Jamie Ness a winning one with Paco Lopez a positive jockey booking. 

3:41 pm Parx (Race 9) – Emirates Affair 2/1 (2-star play)

The daughter of Handsome Mike recorded her fourth career win when drawing eight-and-a-quarter-lengths clear of her 6 rivals in a $25,000 starter contest over 6 furlongs on a good main track here in September. The 5-year-old went on to deliver a three-and-a-half-length second in an allowance optional claimer over the same trip here on her only subsequent start and stepping up slightly in distance she can help trainer Robert Mosco improve on his 14% strike rate (25 for 185) at this meeting.
