Lone Star Park is scheduled to continue their meet on Wednesday with another day of racing. Unfortunately, there isn’t any evening racing from Mountaineer Park, but the opening of Belmont Park is pretty exciting stuff. Belmont Park will host the Belmont Stakes in just over two weeks from today. That will be the biggest sporting event in the US in quite a while. The excitement and energy in the air won’t be present at Belmont Park because of no fans at the racetrack. Nevertheless, it’s better than nothing, and something I’m looking forward to.
Lone Star Park has nine races on the card Wednesday. We will try to do our best to find some winning horses towards the end from Race 7-9 on the Pick 3. It doesn’t take a big bet to participate in multi-bet wagering, so if you’re looking for a cheap bet that can turn into something pretty decent, then it’s for you. You’re not going to get a $1,600+ win from the Pick 3 like I did on the Pick 5 at Churchill Downs a few weeks ago, but it would still be a nice payday. Head below for our free Lone Star Park Pick 3 selections for June 6, 2020.
Post Time: 4:45 p.m. CST
Distance: 6 ½ Furlongs
Race 7 is scheduled for later in the afternoon with post time set for 4:45 p.m. CST. We must successfully select the final three winners at Lone Star Park to get the Pick 3 win. However, feel free to use these picks however you want. If you’re not a multi-bet fan, then there are other options. For Race 7, a purse of $35,000 will be on offer for this 6 ½ furlong event. Final Form and Cherished might be going stride for stride at the top of the stretch in this race. They are likely going to be the best horses in this race.
Cherished seeks a hat-trick after winning on March 27, 2019 and April 18, 2019 at Oaklawn Park. In the first win, Cherished beat Between the Hedges by 4 ¼ lengths. It was an impressive win from 1st out of the gate to 1st at the wire for a wire-to-wire victory. She followed up on that form with even more good news to win by a neck over Jewel Thief. That was another wire-to-wire win for Cherished and she wasn’t the favorite in that race either. Overall, Cherished has 3 wins in 13 races in her career.
Final Form is going to have the best chance in this race of knocking off Cherished. She won 4 of 5 races before finishing 5th in her most recent outing. The last time Final Form lost a race, she responded with a win right after. A win for Final Form today and she is going to have a 50% win percentage in her career. She heads into this event with wins in 5 of 11 races in her career. This race could go either way between Cherished and Final Form. I like the recent form of Cherished just a bit more than Final Form, though. She has been rolling and there’s a good chance it continues on Wednesday.
Post Time: 5:15 p.m. CST
The feature race of the day will be for a $39,000 purse over a mile of racing in Race 8. Classy Act and Quebec will both likely have strong bids for the top prize in this race. Classy Act has 4 wins in 22 races in her career. It’s been an inconsistent career for Classy Act, with much of that due to the events that she has raced in. Classy Act has tried her hand at several stakes races, which have been too much of a reach for her.
In 15 graded events, Classy Act does not have a win. She has placed four times and came close, but is still looking for a stakes win. She’s coming off a 6th place finish in the Carousel Stakes on April 25. In her last non-graded event, Classy Act won on February 29 at Oaklawn Park by a half length. This race is easier than a stakes race, but she will have to deal with Quebec who is likely going to bother her throughout this 1-mile event.
Quebec is coming off a recent stakes win on January 18. It was a terrific performance to beat Don’t Tell Marge by a neck in the Marie G. Krantz Memorial Stakes. She couldn’t sustain that energy, though, and she finished 6th in the Albert M. Stall Memorial Stakes in her next performance on February 15. In any event, this should be an easy run for Quebec. Classy Act will have to bring her A+ form to this race to get past Quebec. If that doesn’t happen, the race likely belongs to Quebec.

The final race of the day at Lone Star Park will feature 4 ½ furlongs for a $34,000 purse. 2-year-old Sarah’s Vision and Spotted Bull are going to be involved deep into the stretch in this race. I’d be surprised to see either of them faltering too hard in this race.
For an upset, though, I’d have to lean with Pirate Junction from the No. 10 post position. He’s making his debut and has been solid in recent workouts. It might not be enough for a win, but if he catches a break, there’s going to be an opportunity.
However, Spotted Bull and Sarah’s Vision are likely going to have the best chance. I’d throw Kandy Ginger into that equation as well. Kandy Ginger will be a first-time starter with some decent workouts under her belt recently. There is some nice value to be had on the morning-line currently offered for Kandy Ginger.
Sarah’s Vision has looked much better in workouts, though, having completed two 4-furlong workouts at 48.12 seconds and 48.39 seconds. Kandy Ginger was unable to get her time under 50 seconds during the same workout. Spotted Bull has been looking the sharpest in the morning, though. If he wants to perform in his debut, Spotted Bull should win amidst this field of rookies on Wednesday at Lone Star.
