My monthly handicapping contest picks for The Racing Biz, 1/3/15

Just completed work on 10 races at Laurel Park and Parx Racing, including 4 stakes races at Laurel. I had direct access to past performances in 8 of the races. I took a quick look at jockey/trainer stats to determine the selections for the other 2.
For this contest, only the top horse counts, and only for win/place, for a mythical $2 wager.

Here’s who I selected
Laurel Park
Race 2: Sniper (10-1 morning line)
Race 3: Peaceadaaction (5/2)
Race 4: Stardust Lill (9/2)
Race 5: Lady Sabelia (1/1)
Race 6: Cutty Shark (4/1)
Race 7: Miss Mischief (3/1)
Race 8: Cerro (5/1)
Race 9: Ore Pass (6/1)

Race 7: Blue Cherokee (3/1)
Race 8: Joint Decision (5/2)
I’ll explain Sniper with the little time I have before post time: One of 2 horses to win off a gain in class in his career. Several good works since last race, all at Laurel, including a bullet. Already has a win upon shipping. Only horse stretching out in this field, and it’s been 8 weeks since.

Follow me at @idealisticstats for more coverage on these picks plus the previously cited Ekati’s Phaeton.
