Horse Racing Picks by Dietz for Turfway Park

June 24, 2023

I am sticking with Belmont Park even though it is going to rain on Saturday. Pay attention to surface conditions.



  • 2 – JESTER’S SONG – McCarthy/Rice.  This horse takes to the slop rather well. Exotics

  • 4 – RELATE – Irad/Pletcher.   Top 2.  Hope for a decent price, but I doubt it.

  • 10 – IMPROPER – Franco/Rodriguez.  Entered for main track only.  There is a reason.


  • 4 – I’M JUST KIDDIN – Jose/Kimmel.  Sire is JUSTIFY who did not mind the slop. Horse should be sitting off the pace closing.  Exotics.

  • 6 – SOVIET EXCESS – Davis/Pletcher. Horse has never run in the slop and if he does he just might take to it with UNCLE MO on his side.   This one will be a price, but I would take the chance.

  • 9 – SHIDABHUTI – Entered for main track only.  Will be a heavy favorite if off the turf and should be.  WINNER!

Race 8 - TURF

This is a 1/ 1/4 turf race. It should stay the distance if moved to the main track.

  • 1/1A – Coupled entry who have the race and pace style to make a good showing.  Low price. Exotics.

  • 6 – ROYAL SPIRIT – Lezcano/Rice –  Solid rate and closer who should take to the slop. Major player

  • 9 – RESERVE CURRENCY – Irad/Brown.  Main track only horse who can sit off the pace and close. Has two good efforts over an off surface.  Top 2.

Thanks for horse racing with Dietz!
