Race: 7 Post Time: 3:37pm ET
Tuesday’s 7th race from Parx Racing (10-17-17) is a Starter Allowance event for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and seventy yards on the main track.
#5 AIMED (9-2) dropped into a $25k/NW3L event at Penn National and got up to win by a neck as the heavy favorite at this distance Sept 1 but came up empty vs. similar flat mile foes in an even local effort Sept 26. The 2-time winner at this distance can bounce back 3rd off the shelf.
#1 Rprettyboyfloyd (8-5) was one I played a few times in Southern California and David Jacobson took over the training duties June 24. He headed $50k/NW3L foes under today’s rider Irad Ortiz Jr. at Saratoga July 27 and was last seen finishing a close 3rd in an Optional Claiming affair at this distance at Penn National Sept 9. He owns the best recent numbers and a ground saving stalking trip is expected.
