SHOW Parlay avai. bankroll: $124.80 ($121.80 bankroll – $60 wager + $63 return)

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day: $63 on Irish Humor (# 7; 3rd race; 10-1) WILL NOT pay $2.10 to SHOW, IF he’s hits the board, I guarantee! It’s a risky play using at 10-1 M/L runner at this point, but after 3 straight days of a 5%-10% ROI, I just felt like it was time to “Go Big or Go Home”. Though he’s a longshot to win, this maiden has hit the board in 8 of 11 career starts, 7 of them holding onto the SHOW money. With a big field and attractive odds, an in-the-money finish should catapult the SHOW parlay amount into triple digits for Thursday (Day 13).

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 24 days remaining in the meet. You might actually find yourself having fun. Good Luck!
