Monday's Best Bet: Strawberry Red makes the lead at Parx

Monday’s 9th race from Parx Racing is a $35,000 entry level allowance event for Pennsylvania-bred three-year-olds and up traveling seven furlongs on the main track (Post Time 4:39 p.m. ET).

#1 STRAWBERRY RED (6-1) wired the field in a local $12.5k claimer at this distance May 24, and that was his fourth victory from five extended sprint starts. He figures to sprint to the early lead from the inside post and might not look back. 

#4 I Am Redeemed (5-2) stalked and smartly scored in his debut at this course and distance May 17. He stretched out a furlong and was clearly second best June 7. The sophomore colt is back in a sprint and figures to stalk the pace. 

#5 Kidnapped (9-2) seems most effective around one turn and might wake up at this extended sprint distance. The versatile gelding was sharper as a juvenile last year. 

#3 Wise Jude (5-1) is 2-for-35 with sixteen minor awards. The late runner turns back and should get pace to chase. He can land a share.
