Race 5: #6 Data Deal
- Data Deal should be the lone pacesetter today. This horse tends to quit on the lead each time but those races were against tougher horses up in New York. This is also the 2nd race off a layoff and in a new barn. Hopefully Ron Dandy has had this horse go over the surface in the mornings before this race so the horse is familiar. Edwin Rivera on the lead is very good as well so I think this horse holds on down the lane.
Race 8: #4 Strawberry Cone
- Strawberry Cone is a first time starter for Kathleen DeMasi and Pewter Stable. These connections have been winning races at Parx for years. Silvestre Gonzalez rides this one and is probably getting on this horse in the mornings. This horse was a $45,000 purchase and has had a very good workout tab. The pedigree is solid so I think this horse can fire first time out.
Race 10: #3 Six o’Clock Sarah
- Six o’Clock Sarah is shipping in from Laurel where Jamie Ness ran this horse for the first time out of his barn. Since that race a month and a half ago, this horse has been working very well at Laurel before shipping to Parx today. Jamie Rodriguez is riding this one like he did at Laurel which is a good sign. Ness has another horse in this field at a shorter price so I think this one might be overlooked and could win.
