Parx Racing 5/3/21
Parx Race 1- 1M CLM5000N2Y
#4 Big Red Seven seems to be in the best form here. Laprida has been riding very well as of late and Miguel Penaloza is having a solid 2021 so far as well. John Fanelli as an owner knows where to point his horses and I think this one is pointed perfectly.
#6 Rose of Dublin just missed last time out at a slightly tougher class. If she can return to her form two races ago she can win this. She is 6 for 23 at Parx and I think this field is weaker than the previous fields she has faced.
#2 Not in the Mood was claimed last time out for Mary Pattershall who has two in here for two different owners. Mychel Sanchez takes the call here and I think that the barn switch along with the jockey improvement is all she needs here to run better.
Race 2- 1M CLM8000
#1 Checkbouncin Billy is back with Jamie Ness once again which is an angle I love. When Jamie Ness claims a horse he used to train and keeps Ruben Silvera, the horses run well. The best form she had was with Jamie Ness and the return is all she needs.
#2 Penance just crushed the competition last time out and returns at a slightly harder level after losing her condition by winning in the CLM7500N1Y level last time out. She has won against open company claimers before so this shouldn’t be that hard.
#3 I’m Not Joking drops in class and drops to the class she belongs at. Dandy tried to bump her up off the claim and she caught a wet track which she is usually solid at but just didn’t have anything in the tank. She returns to the right level and might catch a wet track again today which could make or break her but the class relief is a huge beneficial move here.
Race 3- 1M 70Y CLM12500
#1 Celtic Treasure looks to be the best of the entries and the best horse in the field. He won off the claim last time out for Jamie Ness and looks to continue the good form today at the same level. Ruben Silvera rides this one and I think that is the key to it all.
#6 Luvinmeiseasy gets a much needed jockey switch here for me. I think Mychel Sanchez will be what this horse needs. Mychel is a stronger jockey than Frankie Pennington in my opinion and that could be the difference maker here.
#3 My Train was claimed by Joe Taylor last time out and they put the red hot Anthony Nunez aboard today. Joe Taylor and Nunez teamed up for a winner last week at good odds and look to do the same today.
Race 4- 7F MCL10K
#6 Shetalkstomuch looks to be in the best form and is dropping about 2 levels today to the bottom. Nunez has rode this filly the last 4 starts all at higher levels and has hit the board in 1 of those starts. I think the drop in class is much needed.
#2 Mo Party was claimed by Michael Pino last time out for 10K and is running back at the level today. They put Mychel Sanchez on the horse and hopefully that will help improve. I like the barn switch and this field is pretty weak.
#7 Irish Jumper wasn’t ready to run yet in debut and it showed when the horse was loading and used all of her stamina being reluctant to load. Adorno sticks with her and they are dropping to the bottom level and I hope she can be more calm today.
