Horse Racing picks for Parx race track on Wednesday, October 5: Divine Miracle looks heaven-sent

Jockey Leslie Mawing atop Highwaytwentyseven (5) wins the second race of the day as the Tampa Bay Downs

There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Wednesday, including at Parx race track in Philadelphia. We have been on fire with our picks for a long time now and we are up +289.64 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.

1:49 pm ET Parx (Race 3) – Divine Miracle 2/1 (2-star play)

Divine Miracle has demonstrated good form at around this level of late, including when completing a double when taking out an allowance optional claiming contest over a mile at Parx 3 starts back.

He drew 6 3/4 lengths clear of his rivals that day and while he finished well beaten upped to stakes company subsequently, he looked back to his best when half-a-length second to Ruby Bleu at this track last month. He is taken to reverse form with that rival with regular jockey Frankie Pennington in the saddle. 

3:37 pm ET Parx (Race 7) – Captain Chazz 8/5 (2-star play)

Captain Chazz showed good form when finishing 1 1/2 lengths 4th in a $7,500 claiming contest over this trip on a muddy surface at Parx last month.

He subsequently joined current trainer Alfredo Velazquez and, having performed at a higher level when winning a $25,000 claiming event at this venue in May, the son of Weigelia is selected to record a 5th win in 11 starts at Parx with Dextor Haddock taking the ride on the 3-year-old.

4:31 pm ET Parx (Race 9) – Kisses For Emily 2/1 (2-star play)

Kisses For Emily registered a 4-length 4th in a similar race to this over 7 furlongs at Parx on her penultimate outing. She raced prominently prior to fading late on in that contest and a change of tactics to racing from off the pace saw her stay on well for a 1 1/2 length 3rd in a 6 1/2 furlong allowance optional claimer there just over two weeks ago.

She steps up in trip today and looks up to providing trainer Louis C Linder Jr with a winner.
