Top Race Picks
Platinum Queen (5/2)
The Thomas, Brad and Tate, Joe owned filly is trained by Al Pike, with T. Thornton as her jockey, and was sired by Tapiture. She is our favorite runner to win this race with an odd of 5/2. Platinum Queen finished second in her last appearance at the Evangeline Downs 7 furlong 110 yards race, out of a total of seven runners. Prior to her appearance in August, she was featured at the Evangeline Downs 5 furlong race, where she finished third out of eight runners. Due to her consistency, we see her finishing first in this race.
Hotmolly is owned by Ulwelling, Al, and Bill and has G. Melancon as her jockey. She is trained by Gary Scherer and sired by Custom For Carlos. She is yet another contender in this Delta Downs race, with odds placed at 5/1. The two years old filly featured in the Louisiana Downs 7 furlong 110 yards race in September, where she finished fourth. She will be looking to make a mark in today's race.
Mahoning Valley Pick (Race 3)
The Mahoning Valley was opened in 2014 in Youngstown, Ohio, being one of the newer racetracks in the US. It features a one-mile oval course that consists of a one and half furlong run-in. One of the best races that are being offered at the Mahoning Valley is the Steel Valley Sprint. It affords a $250k prize purse and requires three years old runners to cover a six-furlong distance.
