Tuesday's Best Bet: Tequila Mary eyes three-peat at Turf Paradise

Tuesday’s 6th race from Turf Paradise is an optional claiming event for fillies and mares traveling seven and one-half furlongs on the turf course (Post Time 5:14 p.m. ET).

#8 TEQUILA MARY (7-2) rallied to win her last two local turf starts. The 8-year-old mare has never been better and could easily make it three straight for a productive jockey-trainer team. 

#2 Flying to the Line (3-1) puts blinkers back on and returns to turf after an encouraging show finish in a local flat mile dirt race Feb. 2. She should make her presence felt throughout in her third start after a layoff. 

#3 Bonnet (4-1) hit the board in her last five starts. Her last race was originally scheduled for turf and she rallied for the show in her last two turf attempts. She might be a good horse to key underneath. 

Wagers:

#8 to win

Exacta 2-8/2-3-8

Trifecta 2-8/ALL/3
