SHOW Parlay available bankroll: $121.80 ($116.30 bankroll – $55 wager + $60.50 return)

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day:  $60 on Jewel of the Cat  (# 10; 7th race; 5-2) has 2 wins and 2 runner-up finishes in 4 career outings. She makes her 3-year-old debut in here and has been working lights out at Bowie in the A.M. With races off the turf, finding a race with a fair number of horses toget more than $2.20 to SHOW was a chore.

It’s a beautiful day to go to Old Hilltop. If you have other plans, then make it a point to go on one of the other 25 days remaining in the meet. You might actually find yourself having fun. Good Luck!
