Check out my Monday (5-13-24) Parx Race 8 analysis below.

Parx 8 (OC-50k/3x, filles & mares, 6f dirt) – Post Time – 3:53pm EDT
Primary – #4 DRIFAROS, #6 Ms. Bucchero
Secondary – #1 Dream Chaser, #5 Majestic Creed

Horse Comments:

#4 Drifaros (2-1) is a Florida shipper with early-pressing speed. The Kantharos mare landed the place in her last two starts at Gulfstream Park and might be set for her best in her third start after a layoff. She does some of her best work at this distance and should make her presence felt from the outset under quality speed rider Paco Lopez. 

#6 Ms. Bucchero (3-1) drew outside the other speed. She exits a fast victory in an allowance race at Laurel Park, and this is her first outing in more than four months. She is firing Laurel bullets for this and won her lone local outing last year. 

#1 Dream Chaser (7-2) makes her first start of the year and might work out a cozy trip behind multiple speed horses. The tactical filly likes this oval and might offer a hint of value. She needs to get a bit faster to compete for the win.  

#5 Majestic Creed (4-1) ended her 2023 campaign with two big wins including a romping stakes tally at one mile in November. The 5-time local winner drilled a bullet for this on May 4. The biggest concern is the distance. She is effective at longer trips and might be using this sprint race as a prep.
