Jeff Siegel's Horse Racing Picks for Friday 9/9

By Jeff Siegel  (Xpressbet) 

Xpressbet writer Jeff Siegel offers his top plays for Friday.

Del Mar Race No. 3 (7:03 p.m. ET/4:03 p.m. PT)

#7 Night Party (4-1)

Debuting daughter of Capital Account has displayed enough early speed in her morning preps to outrun a maiden claiming juvenile field, and while her stamina might be a tad suspect she should be able to get loose early and roll all the way to the wire. It’s been a slow year for this barn, but veteran trainer Hector Palma has a history of success with young stock and looks to have this filly plenty fit and properly spotted. She’s listed at 4-1 on the morning line and represents a reasonable gamble at the price in the Win pool and in the various rolling exotics.

Del Mar Race No. 5 (8:03 p.m. ET/5:03 p.m. PT)

#9 Laurel Canyon (7-2)

Launches a comeback in this first-level allowance optional claimer for fillies and mares and because she won her debut back in the spring of 2021 we know she can fire fresh. From a barn that has superior stats with layoff runners, the daughter of Nyquist attracts leading jockey Juan Hernandez while adding Lasix for the first time following a string of strong drills at San Luis Rey Downs that should have her cranked and ready.  At 7-2 on the morning, this stakes-placed sophomore filly seems reasonably priced in a race that doesn’t appear all that deep for the level.
