PARX Race 2 6 furlongs Claiming $16,000 (12:52 ET)
Best Value Play: #3 Regal Strike (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #8 Major Highway (5/2)
Other Contenders: #4 Chief Carlson (6/1), #6 Show Me the Way (4/1)
Analysis: Major Highway has a great resume and a big bankroll. Both suggest he is the one to beat. Chief Carlson is a battle hardened warrior that is in top form and must be considered in all plays. Show Me the Way is the speed of the speed and drops in class-obviously a major threat if he controls the pace for any length of time. Regal Strike is an old pro that can get the jump on the closers if the speed falters.
PARX Race 5 6 furlongs Allowance $36,000 (2:13 ET)
Best Value Play: #1 Tek (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Powerful Sun (5/2)
Other Contenders: #7 Desire to Acquire (9/2) #8 Smokindowntheaisle (7/2)
Analysis: Powerful Sun is lightly raced but broke his maiden like a true pro. Otero comes in from Penn to navigate. Desire to Acquire has been in top form for a while and his last race at this level was good. Smokindowntheaisle is another lightly raced runner that ran well on turf last time and he has always been heavily bet. Tek ran a big race last out and could be a closing threat, and the rail has done well this week.
