12:40pm ET Parx (Race 1) – J Wass 7/5 (2-star play)

Both of this 6-year-old’s victories have come at this venue, however the gelding recorded a slightly disappointing effort when fading over 6.5 furlongs there on his penultimate start. He put that effort behind him when suffering a neck defeat in finishing 2nd over this trip at Monmouth Park subsequently.

Trainer Kathleen A Demasi boasts a 21% strike-rate (29/135) at this meeting and her representative looks capable of improving on that with a victory in this contest.

1:07 pm ET Parx (Race 2) – Hurricane Highway 6/5 (2-star play)

The son of Quality Road was claimed for $16,000 following a 5th-place finish in a claiming event over 6 furlongs at Churchill Downs in May. The 7-year-old has made just one start since joining the Jamie Ness barn, finishing 3rd in a $25,000 claimer at Parx in early July.

Given a break since, he drops markedly in grade today and with Jaime A Torres booked to ride, he looks capable of recording his 6th career success. 

1:34 pm ET Parx (Race 3) – Startwithabang 3/5 (3-star play)

Trained by Jamie Ness, this mare has been performing at a much higher level, including when racing very wide prior to finishing 14.25 lengths 6th in a $25,000 claiming event over a mile at Parx at the start of July.

Given a break since, she arrives on the back of a highly respectable 50.60 4-furlong breeze at Delaware Park on August 26 and, with Ruben Silver up, she looks up to registering her first victory since joining her current handler.
