Since then, Peaceful Way has been fine with two attempts in the top-3. In her last attempt, she showed 3rd for a $19,000 purse. That wasn’t bad and Peaceful Way drops in class.

Lets Take It Izzy is a two-time winner through eight races. She has finished 4th, 1st, 2nd in her last three outings.

Lets Take It Izzy defeated R Averie Lynn by 1 ½ lengths for a $19,000 purse. She was unable to follow up, but was in good form again on December 1 to place 2nd behind La Castiglione by ¾ lengths for $15,600.

Post Time: 1:48 p.m. EST
Distance:6 Furlongs

Race 4 is a $14,500 event covering 6 furlongs on the dirt. Regal Holiday and Swiftwish should be considered for a win bet.

Regal Holiday has finished 7th, 3rd, 7th, 8th, 3rd in five attempts. He showed 3rd on December 8 with a decent bid in his last outing.

Regal Holiday showed 3rd for a $14,500 prize on December 8. That was a good look for Regal Holiday, as he came through after going 8th on October 1.

It was a nice improvement in form for Regal Holiday after struggling at Gulfstream Park. In another assignment at Tampa Bay Downs, look for Regal Holiday to have a chance at this level.

Swiftwish is winless in three events, going 5th, 6th, 2nd. He showed improvement recently as well.

Swiftwish placed 2nd behind Volbeat by 1 ½ lengths for a $14,500 purse. This was after a drop in class from $26,000.

He looks the most comfortable at this level and should have a strong chance versus this type of field on Wednesday.

The Bet

Race 6

(1) Khozando
+250 (5/2)
(2) Striking It Lucky
+1000 (10/1)
(3) Mr. Einstein
+1000 (10/1)
(4) Sunny Saint
+2000 (20/1)
(5) Pharoah Fancy Pant
+800 (8/1)
(6) Skillful
+200 (2/1)
(7) Super Edgar
+600 (6/1)
(8) Skydiving
+1500 (15/1)

Post Time: 2:48 p.m. EST
Distance: 1 1/16 Miles

Race 6 goes for 1 1/16 miles on the dirt for a $13,500 purse. Look at Skillful and Khozando should do some good in this race.

Skillful is a one-time winner through five outings. The colt has finished 6th, 2nd, 6th, 1st, 11th in five events.

He was a winner two races back on October 13 in a nice effort at Parx. Skillful beat Call Me G Q by a head for $350,000.

However, his form dropped on December 3 in his next assignment at Gulfstream Park. Skillfil couldn’t keep pace and fell to 11th in a $24,000 assignment.

Khozando is 1 for 14 and is seeking his first win since November 14, 2020. In his latest outing, Khozando placed 2nd behind Katheryn’s Joy by a neck after a transfer from Gulfstream Park.

Prior to that loss, Khozando finished 7th in a $24,000 race. The drop in grade helped nicely. Remaining in the same class, expect Khozando to have a big chance in this one.

His value makes him the best option in Race 6.
