Horse Racing picks for Penn National on Tuesday, August 17: Drink the Six Cider Kool-Aid
There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Tuesday, including at Penn National race track. We were in the green again on Monday and have hit 16 winners in our last 36 races, profiting 24.2 units during this hot stretch. Let’s keep it rolling! Here are 3 runners whom we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races. It’s time to dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.
6:54pm Penn National (Race 3) – Tarafirma 2/1
Kathleen A Demasi comes into this contest with a 24% strike-rate (20/82) at this meeting and her representative here contributed to that total when victorious by a nose under today’s rider Julio A Hernandez in a race over this track and trip at the end of June. The seven-year-old had previously finished runner-up in a similar race here on seasonal debut and the daughter of Any Given Saturday, who is likely to track the pace, can complete a double.
7:22pm Penn National (Race 4) – His Name Is Sue 2/1
Has demonstrated good form so far this year with the six-year-old finishing in the first two in each of his last five starts including when beaten a nose over this course and distance in a similar race to this at the end of last month. Tried to make all that day prior being overhauled late on and looks capable of making amends with the booking of Julio A Hernandez a positive with regards to his chances.
8:43pm Penn National (Race 7) – Six Cider 2/1
Finished in the frame in each of his last three starts including twice since being claimed by current trainer Brandon L Kulp here at the end of May. Beaten three-quarters-of-a-length when placing second in an allowance event over an extended six furlongs on a fast track here last month. Had previously filled the same position on a sloppy surface and is taken to register a first course victory having placed on all four previous starts at this venue.
