Parx Spot Plays
Race 6: #5 Always Drinking
- Always Drinking has been game in almost every start of his young career. He hasn’t ran over the Parx surface yet and I think he actually might like it. Andrew Simoff has been putting his horses in the right spots since last summer and this spot is another good one. Charlie Marquez comes to ride the horse or at least on paper he is, I am writing this before any jockey changes have came out. I think if Charlie comes to ride then that means this horse has talent.
Race 7: #3 Mineshaft Magic
- Mineshaft Magic shows some early speed and there isn’t much in this field. Dexter Haddock likes to send hard out of the gate when he has the horse to do it with. Today he gets a horse that he just won on and gets to ride back off the claim which is always a good sign. This horse can press or control the speed, and I think that will help today.
Race 9: #3 Hard Sting
- Hard Sting is the better of the Ness entrants here in this race. Since coming to Parx after Jamie Ness claimed this horse out of Kentucky, the horse has 2 wins and 3 seconds out of 5 races. I think he loves the Parx surface and this race suits him. Hopefully Frankie Pennington can give this horse similar trips as he has before.
