XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Thursday with help from the 1ST/BET Artificial Intelligence program, with both at Turfway Park.
Turfway Park Race No. 3 (6:55 p.m. ET/3:55 p.m. PT)
#11 Chrome Dessert (5-1 ML)
Trainer Wesley Ward has 4 wins from his last 7 starters at Turfway Park. He's won with both maiden claiming runners at the meet and that's the level where this one lands after a disappointing debut against tougher competition. Win bet.
Turfway Park Race 8 (9:25 p.m. ET/6:25 p.m. PT)
#3 Social Mandate (20-1 ML)
Longshot look to Juan Cano barn that's been on fire early in the Turfway Park meet, producing $8, $10, $14 and $42 winners from its first 16 starters. That's a $2.89 ROI for every $1 bet. Competitive in recent starts at Churchill and might fit well enough here in competition raise to the allowance ranks. Win-Place bet.
