Wednesday Selections for Racing Day 5 at Timonium Fair Grounds

August 27, 2013 | Gary Quill

Recapping Timonium’s Monday Race Day #4 7-race card posted had 6 winners (2 Top Selections in BOLD type) having $2 WIN pay-offs of $6.00 (2nd race), $7.60 (3rd race), $10.80 (4th), $8.00 (5th), $34.40 (6th) and $4.80 (7th).

The BEST BET of the Day (4 1-1-1) Keep Me Informed (R6 #3 – 2-1 M/L; 4-5 PT) never picked up his AFTER he got squeezed to the back of the field at the break as #5 and the eventual winner (#4) broke to the left leaving the gate. Still, unless our Best Bet sustained and injury as a result of this mishap, there was no excuse for his lackluster effort, finishing 5th in a field of 6.

The LONGSHOT PICK (4 2-1-1) Lookin’ Foxy (R3 #1- 5-1 M/L; 5-2 PT) took more action at the betting windows than the Morning Line oddsmaker anticipated, as this 7 year old mare was sent off as the 5-2 second choice. She took right to the lead out of the gate and just extended her lead as the race progressed. In the end, winning the one mile contest by 10 lengths to return $7.60 to WIN $3.40 to Place and $3.40 to SHOW and “that’s OK” is what radio announcers would say when giving race results in which the SHOW payoffs equaled or exceeded the PLACE payoff).

SHOW Parlay Play of the Day, $20 on Scipion’s Girl (# 3; 7th race; 8-5) normally on the lead, allowed the Post Time favorite (#1A) duel a 20-1 longshot for the lead in the early going. That strategy proved to be a winning one, Scipion’s Girl rallied past the leaders near the Funnel Cake stand (ala Dave Rodman’s call) to go onto an easy victory paying $4.80 to WIN, $2.60 to PLACE and most importantly for the parlay wager $2.40 to SHOW. This adds $4.00 to the $20 initial investment for a Day 5 wager.

The JockeyWorld.org racing term of the day is #240 – Quarter

Selections for Wednesday August 28th 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: $24 on A.P Wild (# 4; 7th race; 6-5) has 4 lifetime races to his credit. In each of them he’s sprinted to the lead, only to weaken in deep stretch every time. He sheds the blinkers today, which should help him relax enough early in the contest to have enough stamina in the final furlong to hold of his rivals, if not for the victory, to at least finish on the board.

Looks like Day 5 will be another beautiful day to enjoy the 7 exciting chase scenes thoroughbred horse racing has to offer at the Maryland State Fair. Good Luck!
