Flower Bowl Stakes Betting Preview

Trainer Christophe Clement has two horses entered into this competition, Parnac and Amazing Grace. With half of the horses under his name, it is a good possibility that one of them will be victorious for him.

There were a few horses that did not compete in this event, which would have broadened the selection options a bit. One notable horse was War Like Goddess, a William Mott trained horse that came in second against McKulick back in August. Adding her to the lineup would have definitely made the odds a little different to an already stacked field.

Horses with Best Chance to Win

Should you choose one of Clement’s trained horses or go with Chad Brown’s McKulick? Below is a view on the field.

Parnac 6-1

Parnac is coming off of a third place finish at the Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes (G3T) back in July and is aiming to do better. In addition to that result, she also has a victory out of three events this year.

Tamarama 6-1

Tamarama is making her debut in the United States and does not have the best momentum coming into this event. Out of four starts, only one of them has been a victory so far.

Amazing Grace 7-5

Amazing Grace has a handful of wins under her belt, claiming five in her career, along with four runner-ups, and six third place finishes in 19 events. However, 2023 has been a slow start, as she has one victory and one third place result in four events.

Odds, Series Trends and Free Pick

The upcoming 2023 Flower Bowl Stakes offers a few betting options, thanks to MyBookie. Below, you will find the complete lineup of contenders set to compete in this highly competitive racing spectacle.


  • Parnac: 6-1

  • McKulick: 4-5

  • Tamarama: 6-1

  • Amazing Grace: 7-5

McKulick 4-5

McKulick has been consistently good so far in her career. She has four wins, four runner-ups, and two third place finishes out of 11 starts in her career. To put this in perspective, Brown’s views on McKulick are that she is racing better than ever before, making her a great option to consider.

In 2023 alone, she has one win and a third place finish out of three events. This victory was actually against Amazing Grace back at the Glens Falls in early August. She won by 2 ½ lengths over Amazing Grace, which could be the case once again.

Final Pick: Take McKulick at 4-5 to Win
