Jeremy Plonk's Horse Racing picks for Sunday 8/21

By Jeremy Plonk  (Xpressbet Editor-in-chief) 

XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Sunday.

Woodbine Race No. 9 (4:58 p.m. ET/1:58 p.m. PT)

#3 Crystal Cliffs (2-1 ML)

Trainer Graham Motion's Maryland-based barn has had big success in stakes this week at Del Mar, and look for Crystal Cliffs to continue that north of the border at Woodbine. Her last effort in the Nassau over the local turf was outstanding when you consider the competitors she faced were even tougher than these. Win bet. Daily Double 3-8 to Queen's Plate top pick.

Woodbine Race No. 10 (5:42 p.m. ET/2:42 p.m. PT)

#8 Moira (5-2 ML)

Fillies have had a deep history of success in the Queen's Plate, kickoff to the Canadian Triple Crown. Moira was visually impressive in winning the Woodbine Oaks over the track, and her sire Ghostzapper was a Breeders' Cup Classic winner at this 1-1/4 miles distance. Win bet. Exactas 8 with 4,5.
