Another three to follow on Winsurance Wednesday at Delta Downs
With that enticement to give it a go again this week, a reminder that playing Delta Downs has become more favorable this year with the 15% Rolling Double Bonus and the 30X Wednesday Winsurance promotions offered by TwinSpires.com.
Opting into both promotions allows players to get a 15% bonus on their gross Double earnings up to $500 per card, and to earn 2 TSC Elite Points per dollar wagered when they bet $10 or more on any race at Delta on Wednesdays. Qualifying players can also earn a bonus of 28 TSC Elite Points per dollar wagered if the fail to cash a ticket in the corresponding race on which they've wagered $10 or more.
Here's another trio of contenders I'll be taking a hard look at this evening:
Race 3: Tiz the Storm (#4, 9-2) wasn't quick enough to keep pace in her last couple of starts, but that might change as he stretches out to two turns for the first time and takes a significant drop in class into the selling ranks, also for the first time. Her debut against open maiden special weight company at Remington in November was as good a performance as turned in by anyone here, and the addition of Lasix might also help.
Race 4: Geraldton (#4, 10-1) has run well off previous minor spells and enters here off a 2 1/2-month freshening. Rises in class from a $5,000 N4L victory, but finished third against open $5,000 claimers two back, and this race is the same level except restricted to Louisiana-breds. Has tactical foot to be in good striking position under Kerwin Clark, who was aboard for the recent win, and should get an honest pace up front.
Race 6: Woof River Rose (#7, 4-1) might be the swiftest of this bunch, no bad thing at this short five-furlong trip. Faces state-breds here for the first time, an though she hasn't raced since mid-October and has three modest works on her tab, the barn is clicking at 39% this meet and the Berndt/Thornton combo also tends to win at a high percentage.
