Tuesday doesn’t have the biggest card at BetOnline, but more than enough to get your horse racing fix. BetOnline has ten thoroughbred race tracks available for wagering in North America. There are nine running in the US, with none of the big racecourses operating. Unless you consider the likes of Presque Isle Downs and Indiana Grand as big racing. They have their days on the calendar with stakes racing, but this isn’t it.
There are no stakes races scheduled for Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find some winning horses. That’s all it comes down to for me. Winning horses to pad the bankroll is what I’m looking for on Tuesday. Do you want some racing under the lights? I do at Mountaineer Park in West Virginia.
Along with Mountaineer Park, we’re at Indiana Grand for the afternoon card. Mountaineer has eight races for a modest purse of $80,900. Head below for our free Mountaineer Park picks for September 28, 2021.

We will open our night at Mountaineer with a 5-furlong event in West Virginia. This goes for $11,000 on the dirt. Consider looking at Giro Kate and Walkin Princess for a winning run. Giro Kate is 7 for 40 in her career, with some decent results as of late.
She has finished 1st, 4th, 4th, 3rd, 1st in her previous five attempts. Giro Kate is coming off a strong performance on September 6.
She notched a win with a Mrs. Chapman by 1 length for a $11,000 purse. This was after she showed 3rd on August 8 for a $14,200 purse. The drop in class really helped put Giro Kate on track.
Walkin Princess is 15 for 27 in her career, and has finished 1st, 3rd, 2nd, 1st in her previous four attempts. She is coming off a half length win for a $14,200 purse. That was more than acceptable in a higher class.
In an earlier win on May 25, Walkin Princess beat Dewyaloveme by 1 length for a $11,400 purse. Prior to her most recent win, she placed 2nd behind Hey Negrita by a half length for a $12,400 prize. She is going to be close, and I think should be the one at the front.

Let’s go to Race 5 for our next look at Mountaineer Park on Tuesday night. Sunday In L B C and Nombre should have a big night in this event. There appears to be some value on the table.
Sunday In L B C is 1 for 28 in her career, and has finished 4th, 6th, 3rd, 2nd in her previous four outings. She most recently has been coming on nicely to show 3rd and place 2nd.
Sunday In L B C showed 3rd on June 16 in a $18,800 event, and then came back to place 2nd behind on September 7 in a $7,800 race.
The class drop helped, and Sunday In L B C finished a neck behind for the win. Expect her to go close again with a chance to win.
Nombre might have the best value in this one. She is a one-time winner across four attempts. In her win on March 14, Nombre beat Science by 1 ½ lengths for a $21,000 purse.
She was unable to follow up, but it was still a decent effort up in class. Nombre finished 4th for a $19,000 purse. After the loss, Nombre is dropping to $7,800. It’s hard not to like her on these terms tonight.

Race 6 is our final selection at Mountaineer Park on Tuesday night. This $16,500 event covers 6 furlongs on the dirt.
We could have an upset in the works. I like Mister Man and Isaias Dream in this one. Mister Man is the morning-line favorite, and is going to present a bold bid from the outside.
Mister Man has finished 9th, 5th, 7th in three assignments. He is at Mountaineer Park after transferring from Indiana Grand.
In his most recent attempt, the gelding finished 7th in a $25,000 event. That was much tougher up in class. Prior to that race, Mister Man was 5th in a $34,000 race.
Isaias Dream is worth a serious look for the value. He has finished 2nd, 4th, 4th in three attempts. Isaias Dream opened his career placing 2nd on August 10 for a $16,500 purse.
In his next two assignments, he finished 4th in back-to-back $16,500 events. Isaias Dream was far from bad, as he finished ahead of five horses in his latest attempt. I think he’s worth considering at 8/1 on the morning-line.
