Thursday Timonium Selections for Racing Day 6 at The Maryland State Fair

August 28, 2013 | Gary Quill

Believe it or not, this odds-board (pictured above) was NOT installed with the originally constructed grandstand when the Maryland State Fair took up residence in Timonium in 1879.

Recapping Timonium’s Wednesday Race Day#5 7-race card posted had 5 winners (2 Top Selections in BOLD type) having $2 WIN pay-offs of $3.00 (1st race), $5.60 (3rd), $11.00 (5th), $4.40 (6th) and $4.40 (7th).

The BEST BET of the Day (5 1-1-2) Go Allie (R3 #6 – 9-5 M/L; 6-5 PT) Go Allie moved outside the early speed to take a short lead passing the wire the first time, was content to rate off of that one past the half mile pole, re-bid 2 wide after a half mile, dueled into the far turn, could not match strides near the three sixteenths marker and faded to 3rd, returning $2.10 to SHOW.

The LONGSHOT PICK (5 2-2-1) Bomb Dust (R5 #7- 10-1 M/L; 18-1 PT) settled back early, angled out leaving the far turn, rallied four wide to loom a major player approaching the stretch, kept on willingly but simply was no match for the winner, settling for a runner-up position to return $18.20 to PLACE and $11.60 to SHOW.

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day, $24 on A.P Wild (# 4; 7th race; 6-5) cleared all rivals early, dictated the pace along the rail, kicked away from his foes under some nudging around the final turn and was merely shown the whip through the stretch to go onto an easy victory paying $4.40 to WIN, $2.60 to PLACE and most importantly for the parlay wager, the 5% minimum $2.10 to SHOW. This adds a mere $1.20 to the $24.40 bankroll for a Day 6 wager.

The JockeyWorld.org racing term of the day is #241Quarter Crack

Selections for Thursday August 29th 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: $25 on Asia Gray (# 2; 2nd race; 9-2) has been in over her head in her previous 3 races at Monmouth Park and Parx.When going today’s one mile distance, she has 3 wins from 6 tries and just one off the board finish. Looking for more than a 5% ROI here.
