Horse Racing picks for Parx race track on Monday, October 18: Le Petite Papillon to win big

John Velazquez (8) aboard Audible trained by Todd Pletcher

There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Monday, including at Parx race track. We are still in fine form with our plays, having profited 108.95 units dating back to Aug. 5. Here are 3 runners whom we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races on Monday. It’s time to dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

12:55 pm Parx (Race 1) – Le Petite Papillon 9/5

Patricia Farro’s filly completed a hat-trick at Parx earlier in the year, which culminated in a $29,000 starter optional claiming success in comfortable fashion. Three subsequent starts have been below that standard, but they’ve come in starter allowance races and she’ll appreciate a drop in grade. All three of her claiming victories earlier in the term came in better races than this and returned to this lower level, she’s going to be very tough to beat from a good draw in gate two.

2:43 pm Parx (Race 5) – Long May You Run 9/5

Previously placed at stakes level, this ten-year-old was formerly classy and has proven he retains a vast majority of his ability in recent starts. He arrives chasing a hat-trick, having won a pair of claiming races at Parx in game fashion. Making all the running on both occasions, he’s a very tough horse to pass and the same is likely to be the case again. He does step up in grade, but he’s run at much higher levels than this in the past and with Jamie Ness’s string in excellent form, this veteran can score again.

4:31 pm Parx (Race 9) – Rather Nosy 3/1

Has been in fantastic form in 2021, winning three of her last four starts. A pair of those came at Santa Anita, before she completed the hat-trick with a comfortable victory at Pimlico in July. She’s been absent since July, where she didn’t have the best of runs when third at Colonial Downs. Recent work at Delaware suggests she’s benefitted from a small break and she’s the best drawn of the protagonists. She should get a dream stalking trip under Paco Lopez and holds obvious claims at this level.
