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 +158.95 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.

12:40 pm Parx (Race 1) – Laytown 3/1 (2-star play)

Trained by Jacinto Solis the gelding has shown good form since breaking his maiden by a wide margin in a $30,000 maiden claimer over a mile at this circuit in July. The selection has finished on the board on each occasion including when losing out by a head over the same trip in a similar race to this earlier this month. The son of Nyquist sets the standard on form and is taken to double his career tally. 

2:55pm Parx (Race 6) – Buff Hello 2/1 (2-star play)

The son of Buffum has demonstrated good winning form so far in 2023 winning three of his four starts including by two lengths in a six furlong allowance optional claiming contest at Monmouth Park last month. The pick joined the Jose H Delgado barn following that success and performed well when runner-up in a six-and-a-half-furlong allowance here subsequently. The drop back to six furlongs is no issue and the four-year-old is selected to deliver his seventh carer win. 

4:26 pm Parx (Race 9) – Beren 7/2 (2-star play)

The five-year-old is a regular in stakes races at this venue with his most recent start in a track stakes coming when half-a-length second in the Banjo Picker Sprint Stakes over six furlongs at this venue in August. The son of Weigelia failed to shine when he could finish only fourth in a sloppy track allowance over the same trip here subsequently but the selection is taken to put that disappointment behind him to register his eighth win here.
