Louisiana Downs 5/16/22 - Horse Racing Picks & Predictions

Louisiana Downs on Monday is hosting 7 races total. Those races are going to vary in length and purse, but all are going to have a great option for a lot of people to bet on.

In the first race it is a 7 1/2 furlong run on turf with a 12,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race is Picking Roses who is coming in at 5/2 odds. The way that Picking Roses has run it would be a good shot at winning the race. Race 1 Pick: Picking Roses.

The second race is a 6 1/2 furlong run with a 9,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race is Mongolian Humor at 6/5 odds. Still, the hose that should be considered is the longer shot in Hurricane Tizway with 10/1 odds. Race 2 Pick: Hurricane Tizway.

In the third race it is a 6 furlong run on dirt with a 12,000 dollar purse. The favorite is Cheyenne Glitters with 2/1 odds. Still the horse that has a good pedigree is Custom Medina who is coming in at 5/2 odds.  Race 3 Pick: Custom Medina.

The fourth race is a 5 furlong run on turf with a 21,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race is Airborne Gal at 9/5 odds. The way that Airborne Gal has run and running on the outside will make it easier for this horse to be the winner.  Race 4 Pick: Airborne Gal.

A 7 furlong race with an 11,000 dollar purse is what takes place in the 5th race of the day. The favorite in the race is I’m a Custom to It at 7/2 odds. Still, the horse that should have an eye on is Hidden Expectation who has run really well before.  Race 5 Pick: Hidden Expectation.

Race 6 is another 7 furlong run with a dirt track and a 21,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race is Silver Ratio at 8/5 odds. Still, the jockey C.J. McMahon is not that impressive which is why we like Ottoman Empire who is trained by Steven Asmussen. Race 6 Pick: Ottoman Empire.

The final race of the day is a 7 1/2 furlong run with a 12,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the race at 3/2 odds is Sharpenedup. Still in this race look for a show bet to be the best bet.  Race 7 Pick: Show Bet on Gobler.
