Monday Selections for Day 4 at Timonium Fair Grounds

August 25, 2013 | Gary Quill

Recapping Timonium’s Sunday Race Day #3 9-race card posted had 6 winners (3 Top Selections in BOLD type) having $2 WIN pay-offs of $6.00 (1st race), $11.00 (4th race), $7.20 (5th), $9.40 (6th), $20.40 (7th) and $2.40 (8th).

The BEST BET of the Day (3 1-1-1) Craftwell’s Belle (R6 #3 – 3-1 M/L; 7-5 PT) was well backed by the fair patrons, but disappointed them when she failed to fire in the lane and flattened out, barely holding onto the SHOW spot to return $2.20 to SHOW.

The LONGSHOT PICK (3 1-1-1) Ballet Dancer (R9 #2- 6-1 M/L; 16-1 PT) was hustled right to the early lead, 2 lengths clear of closest rival into the stretch, was game in the inside when headed 100 yards to the wire, but yielded to be second best to pay $13.00 to Place and $8.00 to SHOW.

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day, $29 on Love’s Strong Hart (R7 #1 – 5-2 M/L; PT 2-1) raced 3-5 wide throughout this contest, but even that was no excuse for his dull effort, finishing 4th of 8, taking down the $29 SHOW bet. So we’re down to $20 to try to build it during the next 7 days of the meet.

Today’s JockeyWorld.org Racing Term of the Day is #238 – Prop and Wheel

Selections for Monday August 26th 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: $20 on Scipion’s Girl (# 3; 7th race; 7-2) is one of the few on this 7-race card that one can pick with confidence that he can SHOW, to keep the parlay alive. In 9 lifetime starts on the dirt, this filly has hit the board in 7 of them.

Looks like Day 4 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!
