Louisiana Downs 9/17/22 - Horse Racing Picks & Predictions

Louisiana Downs is back in action on Saturday with a total of 7 races on the docket. The races start in Bossier City at about 4:05 PM EST and continues until just before 7 PM EST.

The first race of the day is a 1 mile 70 yard run on dirt with a purse of 8,000 dollars. The favorite in the race is Miss Wow Wow at 4/5 odds. With a combination of a good trainer and jockey it is very difficult to not see the favorite getting the win in this race here. Race 1 Pick: Miss Wow Wow.

With the second race it is a 5 furlong run on turf with a purse of 9,000 dollars. The favorite in the race is Abdan at 2/1 odds. Look for the favorite to run good in this race, but look for Nate’s Way to come in running slightly better. Race 2 Pick: Nate’s Way.

The third race of the day is a 6 furlong run on dirt with a purse of 11,000 dollars. The favorite in the race is Oscar Choice at 2/1 odds. Look for the winner in the race to be Dapper Dan Man who has run really well and has a good jockey. Race 3 Pick: Dapper Dan Man.

Race 4 is a 7 1/2 furlong run on turf with a purse of 19,000 dollars. The favorite in the race is G’s Law at 31 odds. Look for Let’s Go Romeo to be the winner in the race with the perfect jockey and trainer combination. Race 4 Pick: Let’s Go Romeo.

The fifth race of the day is a 6 1/2 furlong on dirt with a purse of 8,000 dollars. The favorite in the race is Sheza Hunk at 9/5 odds. The combination of a great trainer in Asmussen and Dominguez on the back of the horse makes it hard to bet against the favorite in this race. Race 5 Pick: Sheza Hunk.

The 6th race of the day is a 1 1/16 mile run on turf with a 23,000 dollar purse. The favorite in the races is It’s Wild Again at 2/1 odds. With the lack of really good competition in this race do not look for a long shot win, but instead look for Peanut N Ike to run strong on the rail to get the win. Race 6 Pick: Peanut N Ike.

The final race of the day is a 5 1/2 furlong run on dirt with a purse of 13,000 dollars. The favorite in the race is Onecallthatsall at 3/1 odds. Look for the winner in the race to actually be a longer shot in Tazzher who comes in at 15/1 odds. Race 7 Pick: Tazzher.
