Sunday Selections for Racing Day 3 at Timonium Fair Grounds

August 25, 2013 | Gary Quill

Recapping Timonium’s Race Day#2 10-race card posted had 9 winners (5 Top Selections in BOLD type) having $2 WIN pay-offs of $17.40 (1st race), $4.80 (2nd), $4.40 (3rd), $2.80 (4th race), $7.00 (6th), $5.80 (7th), $3.60 (8th), $4.00 (9th) and $12.60 (10th).

The BEST BET of the Day (2 1-1-0) Morning Light (R6 #3 – 3-1 M/L; 5-2 PT) rated just off the early leaders, moved four-wide on the far turn to take command and drew away in the stretch to win by 4 ¼ lengths, paying $7.00 to WIN, $3.80 to PLACE and $3.00 to SHOW.

The LONGSHOT PICK (2 1-0-1) High Bar (R4 #6- 6-1 M/L; 9-1 PT) stalked the 1-5 favorite throughout, was kept to task and closed gap willingly, only to come up ¾ length short while surrendering Place money late, returning $2.80 to SHOW.

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day, $20 on Conflicting Report (R7 #1 – 6-5 M/L; PT 1-1) went to Post without his stablemate (Star Zapper). Nonetheless, he was bet down to the 1-1 favorite, duel with eventual winner from gate to wire, coming up a ½ length short, returning a paltry $2.40 to Place and the minimum required payout ($2.10) to SHOW. The smallest ROI (5%), only added $1.40 to the bankroll, but it’s a win no less, so we get to Day 3 with $29.40.

Selections for Sunday August 25th at Timonium Fair Ground are below. Other than WIN, PLACE and SHOW wagering, Timonium offers EXACTA’s, 50 cent TRIFECTA’s and 10 cent SUPERFECTA’s in every race. Unfortunately, they do not have Pick-3’s, Pick-4’s nor ROLLING DOUBLES, only an EARLY DOUBLE (1st & 2nd races) and a LATE DOUBLE (last 2 races on the card). My suggestion for each race is to BOX the below selections in EXACTA’s and TRIFECTA’s. Also play the DOUBLES for a $1 by wheeling the selections, which costs a total of $9. Please note: 1st race post is 1:05pm EDT.

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day: $29 on Love’s Strong Hart (# 5; 3rd race; 5-2) considering this gelding is 12 years old and still competing is truly amazing. He’s earned over $500,000 during his career. At today’s (4f) distance he’s hit the board 30 out of 37 times. This old-timer is worth the risk to keep the SHOW parlay alive.

Looks like Day 3 will be another beautiful day to enjoy the 10 exciting chase scenes thoroughbred horse racing has to offer at the Maryland State Fair. Good Luck!
