Central Banker the value play in Delta Jackpot

Saturday's 7th race (4:15pm CT) from Delta Downs is the Grade III Delta Jackpot for 2-year-olds traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track. 

#3 Central Banker (6-1) could end up following the Fair Grounds Road to the Roses path if everything goes well here. The $200k Keeneland sales grad exceeded the winning par for this in a stalk/pounce 6.5f Optional Claming win under the Twin Spires Oct 28. He landed the place in the grassy Kentucky Downs Juvenile before that and beat subsequent BC Juvenile Sprint hero Hightail in his turf sprint graduation run at the Spa. Stall is 3-for-6 here and the son of Speightstown shows a solid 4f move at Fair Grounds for this.

#1 Bern Identity (7-2) looked good winning the local prep for this and he earned a respectable Final Time Rating that day. This bullring oval can be tricky to handle so he gets bonus points for a local victory. A ground saving tactical trip is anticipated. 

#9 Goldencents (5-2) earned a triple digit number in his facile synthetic sprint debut and shipped across country and held the place in the G1 Champagne second time out. He figures to play catch me if you can and might prove an elusive target. Krigger and O'Neill are 0-for-15 together recently. 

#7 Know More (4-1) won his debut in the G2 Best Pal and followed that up with a rallying place finish in the G1 Del Mar Futurity, both synthetic sprints. He stretched out, switched to dirt, and held the place in the G1 FrontRunner, and he was hung out to dry from post 13 in the BC Juvenile Turf two weeks ago. He has the dynamic Derby trio of Gutierrez, O'Neill, and Reddam in his corner, and I have no idea what we will get from him in this spot. 

#5 Hightail (9-2) wheels back in two weeks and is worth trying to beat on the win end. He toppled four rivals while earning his diploma in his ninth career start in the BC Juvenile Sprint. He traveled from Kentucky to California, back to Kentucky, and now ships to Louisiana and stretches out over a tricky oval at underlaid odds.

The Plays:

$20 to win #3

$4 Exacta 3/1-9 ($8)

$3 Exacta 1-9/3 ($6)

.50 cent Trifecta 1-7-9/1-4-5-7-9/3 ($6)

1 9 7 5 but would be very careful about what win odds I would take. Already down to 2/1 on my service with 12 minutes to go.

splitzacta is such a common pattern that I often use it as a trifecta structure.
