Horse Racing picks for Kentucky Downs race track on Wednesday, September 8: American Diamond is a cut gem
There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Wednesday, including at Kentucky Downs race track. We are in scorching-hot form with our picks; we have hit 50 winners in our last 108 races, profiting 76.7 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.
1:27 pm Kentucky Downs (Race 3) – American Diamond 3/1
Has finished in the top four in three of his four starts to date including twice in maiden special weight races. Dropped in grade to a maiden claimer when finishing a good third having raced from off the pace in a competitive contest over a mile-and-one-sixteenth on turf at Churchill Downs in June. Has been given a break since then and looks capable of returning with a victory following a 37.40 three furlong breeze and Indiana Grand Racecourse recently.
4:15 pm Kentucky Downs (Race 8) – Forty Under 5/2
Has competed successfully at stakes level in the past including when registering Graded success as a juvenile and he registered a first victory since that triumph when running out the half-length winner of an allowance optional claiming race over a mile-and-one-eighth at Saratoga just over a month ago. Tyler Gaffalione who was on board for that victory is again in the saddle and the son of Uncle Mo is taken to register a fourth victory in 14 career starts.
4:50 pm Kentucky Downs (Race 9) – Snapper Sinclair 5/2
Demonstrated good form in three starts this campaign including when fourth in the valuable Group 2 Godolphin Mile at Meydan Racecourse in the UAE back in March. Has made just the one US start since with that coming when runner-up at Churchill Downs at the end of April. Confirmed his wellbeing with a 51.00 second four furlong breeze at Ellis Park at the start of this month. Can take this having placed at the top level as recently as December.
