Louisiana Downs Picks for June 28, 2022 – Horse Racing Betting Tips

The Fourth of July Weekend is approaching, which means that there are some notable stakes races on the agenda. The place to be is at Churchill Downs for the $750,000 Stephen Foster Stakes (Gr. 2). This is a Breeders’ Cup Challenge event.

There are also two other Grade 2 events at Churchill Downs, with the running of the $350,000 Fleur de Lis (Gr. 2) and $350,000 Wise Dan Stakes (Gr. 2).

Money Mangement Critical To Success
Just a friendly reminder if you are willing to play the ponies on a regular basis, then money management is the key to success. It’s without a doubt the worst sport to go outside the boundaries of your bankroll.

We’re playing Finger Lakes this afternoon and Louisana Downs later in the day. It has been a minute since I’ve played Louisana Downs. Louisana Downs has seven races worth $115,500 on the card.

Race 1

(1) Bajan Cash
+450 (9/2)
(2) The Gray Blur
+500 (5/1)
(3) D Two
+120 (6/5)
(4) Creative Letters
+1200 (12/1)
(5) Hulen
+800 (8/1)
(6) Tale of a Storm
+300 (3/1)
  • Post Time:3:05 p.m. CST
  • Distance:5 ½ Furlongs
  • Purse: $12,500

The day begins shortly after 5:00 p.m. EST at Louisana Downs. Look at Tale of a Storm and D Two as big players in the opener.

Tale of a Storm is 8 for 30 and is looking for better after finishing 4th, 2nd, 1st in his previous three outings. He won a $16,000 event on April 16 by a length.

That was a nice look from Tale of a Storm, though he could have done better in his most recent showing on May 30. He finished 4th in this class behind D Two.

D Two finished 2nd in that race, with a ¾ length and a head advantage. The gelding is 8 for 27, so a similar strike rate to Tale of a Storm.

He’s 2nd, 1st, 3rd in his previous three, and a win in six of his last eight outings. Before placing 2nd against Tale of a Storm, D Two won a $12,500 event by 4 ¼ lengths on May 10.

This looks like a good spot for him to step up with a win.

Race 3

(1) Cryptozonic
+400 (4/1)
(2) Mister Don
+800 (8/1)
(3) Coach Kenny
+160 (8/5)
(4) War Count
+450 (7/2)
(5) Adrenaline
+1000 (10/1)
(6) Cypriano
+500 (5/1)
(7) Perfect Perigee
+1200 (12/1)
  • Post Time:4:01 p.m. CST
  • Distance: 6 Furlongs
  • Purse: $24,000

Our next pick at Louisana Downs is a $24,000 event covering 6 furlongs. Race 3 should be a good one between Cryptozonic and Coach Kenny.

Cryptozonic is 5 for 23 and finished 2nd, 4th, 3rd in his previous three attempts. He most recently placed 2nd behind Pickens by 1 length in a $24,000 event.

Cryptozonic was coming off finishing 4th on May 10 in another $24,000 assignment. Look for him to get involved if he runs how he did in his latest start.

Coach Kenny is 3 for 12 and is in good form recently. He’s 2nd, 1st, 1st in his last three trips. Coach Kenny made it back-to-back wins on January 23 and February 24 at Fair Grounds.

Those were both quality trips from Coach Kenny in an $18,000 and $22,000 event. He struck on February 24 in a $22,000 event with a good 2 ¼ length win in his latest victory.

In his most recent assignment, Coach Kenny placed 2nd behind Soul Song by a neck. Coach Kenny was a willing runner in that outing. A similar effort should be sufficient.

(3) COACH KENNY

Race 6

(1) Gotteminabind
+2000 (20/1)
(2) Cute Dinero Queen
+600 (6/1)
(3) Myfriendsawinner
+600 (6/1)
(4) Eagleoverthemoon
+1500 (15/1)
(5) Isn’t It Time
+500 (5/1)
(6) A Stone Runner
+1500 (15/1)
(7) Malformed
+200 (2/1)
(8) Miss Target
+2000 (20/1)
(9) Livvy Lou
+1500 (15/1)
(10) Daddy Hey Daddy
+1000 (10/1)
(11) Mo Bling
+1000 (10/1)
(12) I’d Be Rich
+1200 (12/1)
  • Post Time:5:22 p.m. CST
  • Distance:6 Furlongs
  • Purse:$23,000

Our final selection at Louisana Downs is a $23,000 event covering 6 furlongs. Malformed has to be a serious contender versus this field after a strong debut.

She made his debut on June 5 and showed up well for a $23,000 purse. Malformed placed 2nd behind Ours and Theirs by a neck in a $23,000 race.

She just missed out following a gamely performance. Hall of Famer and former jockey of upset Derby winner Mine That Bird is Calvin Borel. Borel ran a nice race aboard Malformed in their first dance together.

Her workouts have been in good order, with times of 48.80 and 49.40 seconds at 4 furlongs. If she backs up her first start with a similar performance, Malformed is likely too good for this field.

(7) MALFORMED
