Paul Quigley's US Racing Preview
23 Dec 2014

In the final Stateside preview before Christmas, I thought a trip back to an old favourite venue was in order. Parx on Tuesday has a nine race card and I have previewed the first seven races. The meet's leading trainer is Ramon Preciado followed by Patricia Farro. Both have decent chances on the card. As ever when looking at The Philadelphia race track, take note of the early results and see if the inside part of the track is fast or dead. If there is a bias, bet around it.

Happy Christmas to all Stateside and AtTheRaces fans.

PAUL'S ANALYSIS FROM  Parx Racing races 1 to 7
Tuesday 23 December 2014


Parx Racing Race 1 (5.27pm)
Claiming $7,500 - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - non winners of 4 races lifetime - 6 Furlongs - Dirt

Touch Of Faith (6) is holding her form well despite having 21 runs this year. She ran third against open company in late November and then a close second at this claiming level a week later. In the latter, she finished a length in front of Golden Bucket (7). That mare showed her usual speed in that event. However, the step back up to six furlongs has taxed her stamina in the past.

Take out one run when overmatched and Silly Peach (1) hasn't ran a bad one since late summer. In her latest start, she was a good runner up at this claiming level. If the inside part of the track is not bad, she looks sure to be in the shake up.

Dankee's Dance (3) is a late runner in race where the front of the market are not great stayers.

Parx Racing Race 2 (5.52pm)
Maiden Claiming $15,000 - 3 year olds and upwards - 7 Furlongs - Dirt

Boss Cat (2) was claimed off a closing effort on Polytrack at Del Mar in August. He's run second in both subsequent starts. The latter was back at Del Mar but prior to that, he ran to the same level of form on dirt at Santa Anita. His owner Robert Bone has transferred him to Parx and he's now with a high percentage local trainer. Seven furlongs is going into the unknown but it shouldn't be a problem, especially as he gets clear early on.

War Of Honor (9) started off his career by running two promising races at Saratoga for Mike Maker. He didn't progress after that and has since been moved to Scott Lake's barn. His local debut for him when dropped in class wasn't great. It didn't come in the slop and he was bumped at the start. He's a rebound candidate now racing in blinkers.

The twice raced West Terrace (3) may be the most interesting of the remainder. He's been well beaten both times but has shown ability.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Boss Cat (2)

EXOTIC BETS
Reversed Exacta (2 bets): Boss Cat (2) and War Of Honor (9)

Parx Racing Race 3 (6.19pm)
Claiming $7,500 - 3 year olds and upwards - non winners of 4 races lifetime - 5 Furlongs - Dirt

Omar Little (5) won first time at Parx after being transferred from California. He was in deep next time in a starter allowance event and faded out of contention. His connections have spotted him very competitively now back in with claimers. He's a speed horse but has run a couple of decent races stalking the pace. That may be important as three or four in this line up are front end types.

Macro Zoom (3) had his sights lowered significantly when breaking his maiden at Thistledown. He won again in Ohio in October but his last run showed he's more than minor leaguer. The three year old made it a hat-trick of victories on his local debut. Jacqueline Davis put him on the lead and he widened to win by seven lengths. Based on that effort, he's not out of place in this event despite the class rise.

Dos Oro (1) hasn't raced since April but Cathal Lynch is very capable of bringing them back fit. He has a fine record at Parx and has ran well from the inside post before.

Royal Shamus (10) has more to do than when winning at Penn National last month but he does have back races that make him a contender. Deep Water (2) and J C's Dream (4) don't look obvious contenders on form but have the ability to pass horses. That may see them outrun their odds in a speed-laden event.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Omar Little (5)

EXOTIC BETS
Combination Exacta (6 bets): Dos Oro (1), Macro Zoom (3) and Omar Little (5)

Parx Racing Race 4 (6.46pm)
Starter Allowance - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 6 Furlongs - Dirt

Morethanvictorious (4) ran second in a similar event over a mile last time but did win sprinting the start before. Her low percentage trainer has handled her well throughout his career. She hasn't raced since mid September but the five year old is proven fresh. She gets the nod to run down the speed here.

The pace in this event is likely to come from Darn That Trip (1) and Total Talent (6). The former comes off a personal best when winning a claimer last month. If she can hold his form and the rail is not dead, she'll be hard to deny. She will be pressed or even led by Total Talent. She went wire to wire first time off a claim for the meet's leading trainer. Last time out, she blew a gasket when on the inside on a muddy track. Now drawn better, she's very dangerous.

Shesgotthemoves (9) has won back to back state bred allowance events here since being claimed at Saratoga in August. She's a deep closer who may benefit if the early fractions are contested. She seems to have more talented than last time out winner Curlin N Twirlin (7). In her favour is the ability to stay close if the pace is only even.

New York shipper Coast Of Sangria (5) hasn't started well in her last two races and subsequently had too much to do. The 11 time career winner is more than a match for these on her best form.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Morethanvictorious (4)

EXOTIC BETS
Combination Exacta (12 bets): Morethanvictorious (4), Coast Of Sangria (5), Total Talent (6) and Shesgotthemoves (9)

Parx Racing Race 5 (7.13pm)
Starter Handicap - Fillies and Mares - 3 year olds and upwards - 6 Furlongs - Dirt

Dress Up (2) may have the early speed to get clear here early on. She's been mainly facing allowance competition since being claimed in March. She may have found seven furlongs too far last time. The worry with her is her best form has been around Charles Town's bullring.

Donita's Ruler (3) has really improves of late, winning a starter event and allowance contest. Those races were over seven furlongs but she has the speed to handle the furlong cut back in distance. Mike Pino's filly should get a nice trip in her bid for a hat-trick.

Sweet Abandon (7) has won her last four starts on dirt. She's graduated from claimers to win at the allowance level. Her last two victories have been in wire to wire fashion. She did sit just off the pace when winning in September and has an ideal draw for a similar trip.

A few of these gals get lumps of weight, they may be worth a look. One of them is My Blue Ribbon (4). She was a little disappointing last time but her seven length starter allowance success three weeks ago was a fine effort.

Donita's Ruler (3)

Parx Racing Race 6 (7.40pm)
Maiden Special Weight - 2 year olds - 1 Mile - Dirt

Today's Agenda (3) has been placed in all four career starts. He comes off his best effort so far when second at Laurel last month. His trainer Tony Dutrow is in good form right now. Today might be the day when his colt puts it all together.

Unrivaled (1) was a well held second on her local debut with Mettler (4) a long way back in third. That was over seven furlongs. He was claimed off a nose defeat in a Keeneland route so the step back up in distance should improve him.

Mine The Store (9) has run a pair of smashers sprinting. In between, he ran awful over a mile. Maybe it was the wide trip. Whatever the reason, it hasn't stopped his competent trainer stepping him back up in distance. If he stays, he'll go close based on his one turn form.

Blackwater Charly (2) gets back on a surface he ran a decent second on. Mettler (4) may improve for more ground. Maxwell's Hammer (6) runs first time for a trainer in fine form. Storm Advisory (8) shaped well two starts back at Churchill.

Today's Agenda (3)

Parx Racing Race 7 (8.07pm)
Starter Handicap - 3 year olds and upwards - 7 Furlongs - Dirt

Top weight here is Senor Louie (6) with Slim Pickins (5) 1lb below him. The former is a consistent but win shy type. Slim Pickins however has more chance of giving away between 3 and 10lbs all round. He goes from one good barn to another via a claim. The back classer may not have a frantic pace to chase down cutting back from a mile.

James Lee (2) comes off his best effort for some time over course and distance. That close up third is the premier last line of form in here. The concern at his likely price is can he repeat it. There may be more playable horses where rewards may justify the risks.

Three horses catch the eye running first time for new trainers. Zoebear (3) and Deacon Furr (10) were both claimed by Guadalupe Preciado last time. The former has tons of back class so may leave his poor recent form behind. Deacon Furr is just as interesting as unlike his barn mate, he gets a positive trainer change. That's the angle in for the final recent acquisition Hanky Doodle (9). He's been running for a winless trainer in 2014. He may wake up now going for Phil Aristone who is in great form.

PAUL'S SELECTION
Hanky Doodle (9)

EXOTIC BETS
Combination Exacta (12 bets): James Lee (2), Zoebear (3) Hanky Doodle (9) and Deacon Furr (10)
