Evangeline Downs 5/4/22 - Horse Racing Picks & Predictions

Evangeline Downs has been open since 1966 and is ranked as the 6th best track in North America. The track is located in Opelousas, Louisiana and is playing host to 8 races on Wednesday 5/4/22.

The first race is a 1 mile run with a 11,000 dollar purse. The favorite at 8/5 odds is More Harder. With a lot of strong contenders in this race, though, a box trifecta could end up being the best option. Race 1 Pick: Boxed Trifecta with Freed, More Harder, and Conquistador Gold.

The second race is a 5 furlong run with a 19,500 dollar purse. The favorite in the race at 5/2 odds is Pineapple Alley. A very strong contender that has run really well this year is Zumra Bayou who has 6 starts with a first, 2 second and 2 third place finishes, which makes Zumra Bayou a strong show bet. Race 2 Pick: Show Bet On Zumra Bayou.

The third race is a 6 1/2 furlong race with an 11,000 dollar purse. The favorite coming into the race is Tetheredtothetruth at 9/5 odds. Still the best bet here may be an exacta on Swimhard Dreambig. Race 3 Pick: Swimhard Dreambig Exacta.

The fourth race of the day is a 7 1/2 furlong race with a 12,500 dollar purse. Vancouver Snow is coming in as the favorite at 5/2 odds. The field here is fairly crowded and one horse that stands out is Taipans Cherrybomb who has a second place finish in the one race so far this year. Race 4 Pick: Taipans Cherrybomb.

The fifth race of the day starts at 8:18 PM and is a 6 furlong run with a 16,000 purse. Sir Smack is coming in as the favorite at 8/5 odds. Still one horse that stands out and should be a good place or show bet to be safe is Jeb’s Lucky Eight. Race 5 Pick: Show Bet on Jeb’s Lucky Eight.

The 6th race is going to be a 1 mile run on turf and have a purse of 24,000. Freedom Factor is the favorite at 3/1 odds. A long shot in this race is Louisiana Moon at 12/1 odds, but the chance of getting a podium finish here is decent for Louisiana Moon. Race 6 Pick: Show Bet on Louisiana Moon.

The 7th race is a 7 furlong run that has a 26,000 dollar purse. The favorites in the race is Half Ours N Stormy and Golden Palace. With that being the case, look for a quinella type of bet here. Race 7 Pick: Quinella on Half Ours N Stormy and Golden Palace.

In race 8 it is a 6 1/2 furlong race with a 10,500 dollar purse. The favorite is Cold Hearted Wench with 2/1 odds. However, in this case, it is easy to see why as the level of competition is lower than what has been experienced before. Race 8 Pick: Exacta on Cold Hearted Wench.
