Friday Fair Selections for Race Day 7 at Timonium Fair Grounds

August 30, 2013 | Gary Quill

Recapping Timonium’s Thursday Chalk-Fest where 6 of the 7 races on the card were won by the Post Time favorite had 6 winners (3 Top Selections in BOLD type) having $2 WIN pay-offs of $4.20 (1st race), $4.00 (2nd), $25.00 (3rd), $3.80 (5th), $2.40 (6th) and $3.80 (7th).

The BEST BET of the Day (6 2-1-2) L.A. Girl (R6 #1 – 2-1 M/L; 1-5 PT) after the scratch of #4 – Carrietta reduced the field to five, it also left L.A. Girl as the lone speed and prohibitive favorite who dueled early along the inside, moved clear within herself after a half mile, widened the advantage into the far turn then held a comfortable margin while being kept busy to the sixteenth marker and went on to win by 3 lengths to return the next to lowest possible WIN payoff of $2.40, $2.10 to PLACE and $2.10 to SHOW.

The LONGSHOT PICK (6 2-3-1) Pac Yer Tack (R4 #7- 9-2 M/L; 2-1 PT) lagged well off the early pace while saving ground, angled out leaving the far turn to commence a run, circled four wide into the stretch and finished fast to secure the runner-up position and return $3.00 to PLACE and $2.20 to SHOW.

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day, $24 on Asia Gray (# 3; 2nd race; 1-1) was 9-2 M/L, but the betting public sent her off as the Post Time favorite. She broke alertly then was content to rate just off the lead while saving ground, was maneuvered three wide for racing room mid way down the backstretch, rushed up to engage the leader soon after, dueled with that one to the sixteenth marker then pulled away late under strong handling to win paying $4.00 to WIN, $2.40 to PLACE and yet again just the 5% minimum $2.10 to SHOW. This adds a mere $1.25 to the $25.60 bankroll for a Day 7 wager.

The JockeyWorld.org racing term of the day is #242 – Quarter Horse

Selections for Friday August 30th 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.
