Tuesday's Best Bet: Aced can pass the test at Parx

January 13, 2020 05:23pm

Tuesday’s 8th race from Parx is a starter allowance event for 4-year-olds and up dashing six and one-half furlongs on the main track (Post Time 3:34 p.m. ET).

#8 ACED (5-2) was nabbed out of his last by quality trainer Juan Guerrero. I like the outside draw for the tactical type, and both of his wins were at this distance. 

#1a Zoomer (9-5) missed by a nose Dec. 23, and the winner returned to score again Jan. 1. The gelded son of Curlin captured his other three local dirt sprints and is the deserving favorite. His stablemate #1a Military Hop (9-5) is back in a preferred sprint in his second start after the claim. 

This is a speed friendly distance, and #5 Admiral Abe (8-1) and #7 Will’s Pioneer (4-1) are the two runners with the most early zip.  

#6 Flat Out Flying (6-1) is a competent late running sprinter turning back in distance. I can see him running well in this spot, and he seems to be especially live underneath.
