The week after the Pegasus World Cup usually isn’t the biggest for horse racing. There are a handful of $250,000 events for the features on Saturday.

I haven’t looked ahead to those Grade 3 races, but will be at one or two of the big race tracks then. As far as today is concerned, you can find Turf Paradise, Sunland Park, Penn National, Parx, and Louisiana Downs for wagering.

TheSportsGeek has two cards covered at Turf Paradise and Penn National Race Course on Tuesday. Penn National Race Course has a $178,900 card with nine races. Head below for our best Penn National Race Course picks on February 1, 2022.

Race 5

(1) You Must Chill
+150 (3/2)
(2) Copperhead Creek
+200 (2/1)
(3) Triple A. Plus
+500 (5/1)
(4) Hockey Puck
+400 (4/1)
(5) Saratoga Jack
+1200 (12/1)
(6) Known Quantity
+1200 (12/1)

Post Time: 7:49 p.m. EST
Distance:1 Mile

Race 5 covers a mile for a $31,600 purse on the dirt. You Must Chill and Copperhead Creek should get involved at the wire, even a possible duel potentially between these two.

Copperhead Creek is a four-time winner in 18 attempts, with a most recent win on December 10. He got home in his latest outing, as Copperhead Creek scored a 2 ½ length win over Shane’s Jewel for a $28,900 prize.

He has finished 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, 1st in his last four assignments, showing some nice consistency, and has to be worth a look in his current form. Up to $31,600, he should still be a competitive runner.

Prior to the win, Copperhead Creek was in fine shape, showing 3rd in a $28,900 race. He has to be involved in this field.

You Must Chill is 7 for 21 in his career, and has finished 3rd, 6th, 5th, 1st in his previous four looks. The gelding most recently beat Koan by a head for a $28,000 purse.

It was a productive performance after You Must Chill finished 5th in a $36,000 event. The class drop helped send You Must Chill to the winner’s circle, though Copperhead Creek lightly has a slight advantage.

Copperhead Creek has proven himself better in the mid $30,000 range, while You Must Chill has struggled. You Must Chill likely loses out at the wire in a close small upset.

The Bet

Race 6

(1) Mr Hoover
+400 (4/1)
(2) Galilee
+600 (6/1)
(3) Fire’s Finale
+500 (5/1)
(4) Indian Counselor
+250 (5/2)
(5) Sassy King
+3000 (30/1)
(6) Dollarization
+300 (3/1)
(7) A T M Awesome
+2000 (20/1)
(8) The Honorable One
+600 (6/1)

Post Time: 8:16 p.m. EST
Distance: 1 1/16 Miles

Race 6 is a $28,000 event covering 1 1/16 miles on the dirt. Dollarization and Indian Counselor should have the best chance in this one.

Dollarization has three wins in 14 assignments in his career. He has finished 1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd, 3rd in his last four attempts. Dollarization has been a consistent runner with good poise.

Three races back, he took down a $31,600 event by a neck. In his next showing, Dollarization placed 2nd behind My Man Pots N Pans by a half-length in a $28,000 assignment.

Indian Counselor is 5 for 23 in his career and is looking for a hat-trick on Tuesday. Look for Indian Counselor to have a nice chance after winning on November 17 and December 27.

He was a 1 length winner over Cobble Hill for a $22,000 purse, and then followed up a month later with a 5 ¼ length in a $26,000 race. That was impressive, with Indian Counselor clearing at the ½ pole.

A repeat performance for Indian Counselor should put him in great standing for his third straight win.

The Bet

Race 8

(1) Smart Two A T
+350 (7/2)
(2) G Daddy
+450 (9/2)
(3) Bluegrass Posse
+1000 (10/1)
(4) Cigar Box
+500 (5/1)
(5) Rocket Blast
+400 (4/1)
(6) Victory Element
+250 (5/2)
(7) True Wisdom
+800 (8/1)

Post Time: 9:10 p.m. EST
Distance:6 Furlongs

Race 8 should be a good one at Penn National on Tuesday night. If you’re looking for a winning performer, then Victory Element and Rocket Blast have to be worth considering.

Rocket Blast is 4 for 21 in his career and has finished 6th, 1st, 2nd in his last three attempts. The gelding came through with a 3 ¼ length $10,000 win on December 17.

That was a nice attempt from Rocket Blast, as he looked good again on December 28 in his last race. That said, Rocket Blast couldn’t pull off the double, settling for 2nd in a $10,800 event.

Rocket Blast made it a close call, though, as he came just a neck away at the wire from making it back-to-back wins. Victory Element should be there to give him a solid test.

Victory Element is 4 for 27 in his career and has been okay recently. He’s finished 1st, 5th, 6th, 3rd in his last four starts.

In the win on October 5, Victory Element was in good shape, beating Coast to Coast by 8 lengths in a blowout for $16,400. He was racing up in class since then, so down to $10,800 expect better than what he did after the win.

Victory Element should be the horse to beat on these terms. He bobbled his last start out of the gate and still ran well enough for 3rd in a tougher race than this one.

The No. 6 has the best chance to score today, so long as he doesn’t get caught in traffic.
