PARX // RACE 6 (2:22PM ET) // $200K PLUM PRETTY STAKES // 1 1/16 MILES (DIRT)
EDZO'S PICK: #5 TROLLEY RIDE (6/1)
If the star sprinter Chub Wagon stays in the race, I like my mare even more. There’s plenty of pace in this two-turn race and I love the rider change to former Parx leading jockey Kendrick Carmouche in a homecoming of sorts. Win-place bet. Consider daily double 5-2 to this pair of picks.
PARX // RACE 7 (2:51PM ET) // $200K PARX DIRT MILE STAKES // 1 MILE (DIRT)
EDZO'S PICK: #2 WEST WILL POWER (5/1)
Big respect for trainer Kelly Breen. He has a horse on the rise with this 4-year-old, who was runner-up to Code of Honor in the Iselin. Look for a mid-pack trip with a stalk-and-pounce style. Win bet. Exacta box 2-6 with classy Met Mile winner and race favorite Silver State.
