Louisiana Downs 5/14/22 - Horse Racing Picks & Predictions

Louisiana Downs is playing host to another round of horse racing on Saturday. Look for the races to be great and fast paced in this exciting track.

The first race is a 5 furlong run on turf with a 20,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race is Have I Ever at 8/5 odds. With the strong running and weaker competition on the day it is easy to see an exacta pick on Have I Ever winning the race. Race 1 Pick: Exacta on Have I Ever.

The second race on the day is a 5 1/2 furlong run with only a 9,000 dollar purse. The favorite at 1/1 odds is Confess. Still a race like this one for a small purse has a lot of competition in it. With that being the case look for a longer shot and potential show bet on Toocan Dance. Race 2 Pick: Toocan Dance.

With the third race it is a 1 mile run on turf with a 13,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race is Oneforvivi who comes in at 7/5 odds. Look for a better pick here, though, to be a place pick on Bodee Bodee. Race 3 Pick: Place Bet on Bodee Bodee.

Race number 4 is coming in at a 6 furlong run with a 12,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race at 7/5 odds is Galaxy Thirtysix. Still the race as many of the races at Louisiana Downs has a lot of good runners and with that being the case look for a boxed trifecta bet. Race 4 Pick: Boxed Trifecat with Galaxy Thirtysix, Love to Learn, and Melody Rose.

For the fifth race of the day it is a 7 1/2 furlong run with a 20,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race is American Deputy at 3/1 odds. With the sire ship on the side of American Deputy and a strong jockey it is hard to bet against the horse. Race 5 Pick: American Deputy.

With the sixth race of the day it is a 5 1/2 furlong run on dirt with a 25,000 dollar purse. Out of the field of 9 horses the favorite is Royal O’Haigain at 2/1 odds. With this race being a lot of weaker horses it wins fairly easy to bet on a win and place bet here. Race 6 Pick: Royal O’Haigain wins and Canada’s Customs Place.

With the seventh race it is going to have a 6 furlong run with a 23,000 dollar purse. The favorites are actually tied here at 5/2 odds with Magic Lightning and Helaire. Still look for the winner here to be Check Me Out at 7/2 odds. Race 7 Pick: Check Me Out.
