For the big event coming up this weekend, the $500,000 Essex Handicap (Gr. 3) at Oaklawn Park takes the cake. The $1,000,000 Louisiana Derby (Gr. 1) at Fair Grounds on March 26 is the next notable prep race for the Kentucky Derby.

Parx is putting on 11 races with $313,000 in prize money available. Head below for our best Parx picks on March 15, 2022.

Race 5

(1) Driver’s License
+800 (8/1)
(2) Cape Cod Sally
+500 (5/1)
(3) Dazzling Speed
+400 (4/1)
(4) Broad Jumper
+1200 (12/1)
(5) Angelsfour Michele
+800 (8/1)
(6) Parable
+250 (5/2)

(8) Misbehaving Lady
+1200 (12/1)

Post Time: 2:43 p.m. EST
Distance: 6 Furlongs
Purse:$20,000

Race 5 covers 6 furlongs on the dirt for a $20,000 purse. This one should result in a battle between Dazzling Speed and Parable.

Dazzling Speed has just one win in 41 attempts. That’s an unfavorable success rate for the mare. However, down in class, she should have a chance Tuesday.

She has been accustomed to running at Monmouth and Aqueduct primarily in her career. In her most recent attempt, Dazzling Speed finished 8th in a tougher race.

This should be easier, but Parable is a one-time winner through 11 races. The mare is 4th, 12th, 1st in her last three assignments.

She is coming off a 1 ¼ length $19,000 win as the favorite on February 23. The Canadian appreciated the transfer from Woodbine to Parx for easier work.

It was tough for her at Woodbine, but Parx competition won’t compare. She did well right away in Philadelphia. This looks like another winnable spot.

The Bet
(6) PARABLE

Race 7

(1) Thorny Tale
+250 (5/2)
(2) El Hermano
+350 (7/2)
(3) Celtic Treasure
+400 (4/1)
(4) Charlies Safari
+450 (10/1)
(5) Alejandro’s Team
+1000 (10/1)
(6) Chowda
+300 (3/1)
(7) Nine Toe Johnny
+1200 (12/1)

Post Time: 3:37 p.m. EST
Distance: 1 Mile 70 Yards
Purse:$46,000
Race 7 looks like one to watch between Chowda and Thorny Tale in the stretch run. Chowda is 3 for 14 and he in good form recently.

He’s been involved in some tough races, including the $150,000 New York Stallion Stakes on December 5. Chowda is 4th, 2nd, 9th in his previous three events.

Two races back, Chowda placed 2nd behind Sibelius by a head for $82,000 on January 8. That was pretty impressive.

Following that attempt, he was 9th on February 5 in an $82,000 race, hence the class drop. Thorny Tale has a good chance of repelling Chowda.

Thorny Tale is 8 for 26 with experience at Aqueduct and Belmont. He finished 4th in three straight races, most recently in a $29,000 event.

Expect Thorny Tale to benefit from the inside go on strongly in Race 7.

The Bet
(1) THORNY TALE

Race 9

(1) Map of America
+250 (5/2)
(2) Lil Tater
+800 (8/1)
(3) Bucks Some
+350 (7/2)
(4) Shesasuperfreak
+1500 (15/1)
(5) Empress Deona
+900 (9/1)
(6) Spun D’etat
+500 (5/1)
(7) Live Aid
+800 (8/1)

Post Time: 4:31 p.m. EST
Distance:6 Furlongs
Purse:$46,000

Race 9 covers 6 furlongs on the dirt for a $46,000 purse. Look at Spun D’Etat and Map of America to have an impact on this occasion.

Spun D’Etat is 4 for 16 and sets up well for a big performance on Tuesday afternoon. She has finished 6th, 4th, 4th after a win on October 28.

Spun D’Etat had a $60,000 win and then fell off. In her latest outing, she finished 4th for a $44,000 purse. More is required on Tuesday.

Map of America has two wins in 16 races, going 5th, 5th, 1st in his last three appearances. In her most recent, she beat Onthisharvestmoon by 4 ¾ lengths in a $40,000 event.

This came after Map of America went 5th on August 7 in the same class. She should enjoy the inside rail in Race 9.
