Tuesday's 9th race (3:50pm ET) from Parx is an Optional Claiming event for 3-year-olds and up dashing five panels on the turf course.
#4 Catalactic (4-1) switched to turf and overcame traffic to win an entry level affair at this course/distance July 9. The sharp 4yo gelding has rattled off three straight and projects a tactical trip under Stewart Elliott.
#5 Wire Funds (2-1) is a nose away from five straight wins and is an obvious prominent throughout threat under Abel Castellano.
#8 Quite a Dude (3-1) was nabbed out of his last by Feliciano (also trains Wire Funds). The hard knocking 8yo gelding likes this distance.
$12 to win #4
$6 Exacta Box 4-5 ($12)
$3 Exacta Box 4-8 ($6)
