Free Horse Racing Pick:

Recio’s Baytown 5/1

It would be easy to see that one of the 1/1 favorites would be the horse to back. However, in this instance look for a shocker to come from the horse at 5/1 odds in Recio’s Baytown. Granted, Recio’s Baytown has not run more than 3 furlongs in a workout and the timing could be a challenge, but look for the holdout to come in the extra 1/2 a furlong before Recio’s Baytown wins the race. Keeneland Race 1 Winner Prediction, Recio’s Baytown.
