SHOW Parlay available bankroll: $80 ($104 bankroll – $24 wager + $0 return)

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day:  $20 on Bet the Cat (# 6; 3rd race; 5-1) No, read the name again. It’s not Ben’s Cat in the 7th race, rather Bet the Cat in the 3rd race. This 4 y.o might be running at the lowest level ($5k Claiming N2L) offered in MD, but I see consistency in his running line. That is, always making a late run but never wanting to pass ALL of his rivals. The distance (1 1/16 mile) seems to fit him well and has the co-third choice in here, there’s value in the SHOW spot.

It’s a beautiful day to go to Opening Day at Old Hilltop. If you have other plans, then make it a point to go on one of the other 33 days. You might actually find yourself having fun. Good Luck!
