Best bets from Delaware Park on Thursday

Nick Shiambouros returns to the Delaware Park oval with two more selections…

Wild n’ Stormy tough on debut

Race 2 18:45 Delaware Park – Wild n’ Stormy

I am going to take a chance with debutant Wild n’ Stormy in this $16k maiden claimer on the main track.

This Talent Search filly comes from a speedy family and has been working well ahead of this assignment. The Sire Talent Search was a fast horse. He cracked heads with the likes of Benny The Bull and finished third in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint behind Midnight Lute. He throws precocious two-year-olds and hopefully Wild n’ Stormy will be another one. Trainer Anthony Pecoraro has a 22% strike rate with youngsters and 27% with maiden claimers. She should be backed around [4.0] on the exchange.

So Darn Hot to chill rivals

Race 6 20:45 Delaware Park – So Darn Hot

So Darn Hot should go close in this interesting allowance race on the main track.

This well related filly was most impressive when beating Thankful in a Maiden Special Weight at Belmont in June. She made a three-wide move on the turn and powered home to win with complete authority. At the time I expected her to run next at the Saratoga meeting, but trainer George Weaver has decided to take in this race instead. I think she is open to a good deal of improvement and recommend backing her at BSP.
