Wednesday's Best Bet: Flat Out Beautiful looks great at Parx

Wednesday’s 9th race from Parx Racing is an optional claiming event for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track (Post Time 3:55 p.m. ET).

#3 FLAT OUT BEAUTIFUL (3-1) rallied to win two straight local dirt routes on Aug. 10 and Sept. 2. He got no pace help in an even 4th at one mile Sept. 28, and cut back to seven panels and showed nice late interest in another 4th place finish Oct. 21. He likes the course and distance and can win this if the pace is honest. 

#2 Zippy (5-1) exits back-to-back local route wins. His inner post and positional speed should lead to a cozy ground saving tactical trip. 

#4 Semi Excited (7-2) was claimed for $35k Sept. 2 and rallied to hit the board in a pair of local starts since. He has a solid overall record at this course and distance.
