Indiana Grand (Race No. 10)

Horse Picks for This Race
Beach Mercedes is the overriding favorite to win the race. She is a 128-pound mare trained by Randy Smith and jockeyed by Samuel Mendez. She comes into the race with 1/2 morning line odds and $41,889 in winnings over her expansive racing career.
She has managed 9 wins from 21 total races, with a win percentage of 32%. Incidentally, her last three races have been the same four-furlong dirt runs at Indiana Grand. The most recent was a first-place finish in late October and the other two were second-place finishes. No doubt, her experience at this particular track will play in her favor come race day.
She might have fierce competition in Nacho Binez though. This 128-pound, three-year-old gelding has also built considerable race experience at the Indiana Grand racetrack and looks to better his record with this race. Antonio Rodrigues, his jockey, is himself a fierce competitor and has a knack for taking races to the opponents. Whichever horse wins, Nacho Binez and Beach Mercedes are sure to put on a show from the starting gate. Nacho Binez has odds of 12/1 to win.
Rounding off the top picks is I Like Beer. He is a similarly-sized gelding who has the highest amount of career winning of the three picks - at $140,540. His profile is stellar, with his last two races ending in first-place finishes in slightly shorter three-furlong events at Indiana Grand. He stands as a capable third pick and could well upset the two favorites at the top. He has odds of 8/1 to win the race.
Parx (Race No. 9)
Race number 9 at the Thoroughbred racetrack Parx is an allowance style race featuring nine fillies and mares aged three years and above. This race will run along a one-mile dirt track and has $40,000 in prize money.

With morning line odds of 2/1 and standing as the favorite to win this race, Slingin Sammy B is a three-and-half-year-old filly trained by Joseph Taylor and jockeyed by Mychel J Sanches. She weighs in slightly heavier than the rest of the bunch at 124 pounds and has career winnings of $149,320.

An expert at the dirt track, she has no doubt earned her place as the top pick for this race.
