Tuesday's Best Bet: Aiken To Be Taken top choice at Indiana Grand

Tuesday’s 7th race from Indiana Grand is a $39,000 allowance event for Indiana-bred fillies and mares which have never won three races. They will be traveling one mile on the main track (Post Time 5:31 p.m. ET).

#1 AIKEN TO BE TAKEN (9-2) is a solid early-pressing threat from the rail if she is ready to go in her first start in more than five months. She frequently finishes in the top three at Indiana Grand and one mile is her preferred trip. 

#7 April’s No Fool (7-5) exits a surprising runner-up finish at Fair Grounds at 24-1 odds. She rallied to win a local allowance event in the slop last fall and owns the best overall speed ratings. 

#8 Mintchocolatechip (4-1) has not won in quite some time but her trainer is off to a good start at the current stand, and she was a good 2nd in a similar local spot last fall. I like her chances underneath.
