Delta Downs Jackpot Betting - Mr. Z Zips To The Winner's Circle

Posted by on 11/19/2014 7:06:42 PM

The Grade-3 Delta Downs Jackpot has become one of the top races in the United States for two-year-olds looking to take some momentum into their third year. This field is racing for a purse of a cool $1,000,000, and it is run over 1 1/16 miles on dirt in Lousiana.

This figures to be a fun race to watch with a lot of horses that could make some serious noise in 2015 as three-year-olds, but one horse has already run in some very important races and that is going to come into play in Saturday. Look for Mr. Z to make a push for the victory this weekend.

What: Horse Betting

When: Saturday, November 22nd, post time 5:15 PM ET

Where: Delta Downs, Vinton, LA

Pick: Mr. Z

Conquest Tsunami has won five of his first career starts, but he finished sixth at the Grade-1 Breeders' Futurity in his first big test in October. This will be a massive opportunity for this colt to show he can make some noise in his third year.

Dekabrist won his first two starts, but things have since gone dramatically downhill with two fifth-place results, an eighth and then an 11th at the Breeders' Futurity. He'll have to step up his game in order to challenge the favorites on Saturday.

Far Right has four top-three results in five starts, but he needed three tries to break his maiden and then he finished fourth at the Grade-2 Futurity in October. The biggest question surrounding this horse is the distance; he has never run more than a mile.

Golden Actor has won his first two starts, but he has also never run more than a mile. Still, he'll come into this race as one of the favorites and Golden Actor will be one to watch.

Mr. Z already has plenty of big-race experience as five of his six starts have come in graded-stakes events. He has finished second in three of them, and is aiming to bounce back from a fifth at the Breeders' Cup Juvenile. Mr. Z shouldn't be nervous at all come Saturday and you can never downplay the effect of nerves on a horse at post time.

Ocho Ocho Ocho is perfect in two starts, including the non-graded Juvenile Turf Sprint. Now, he has to turn it up a notch and handle the increase in distance, but the speed is there out of the gate for this thoroughbred.

Prime Engine won his debut at the non-graded Gottstein Futurity, but that was back in September, so rust could be a factor. However, that was at 1 1/16 miles, so distance shouldn't be an issue.

Red Button has a win and two second-place results in four starts, but a sixth at the Grade-1 Del Mar Futurity might put some players off. Still, you might be able to find some good value out of this horse.

Saratoga Heater has two wins in three starts, and he has recovered from a fifth in his first maiden attempt. Like many of the horses in this field, the distance will be the main concern to watch as he has never run more than seven furlongs, so watch him closely down the backstretch.

Two Six Win will be a longshot after failing to finish higher than fifth in his first two career starts. There isn't much to be expected out of this two-year-old, but you never know what can happen in the world of high-stakes thoroughbred horse racing. Two Six Win could shock the field.

Unblunted did win his maiden on his first attempt, but that is his lone start, so there isn't a lot to be known about this horse. This will be a good gauge of where he is going into his three-year-old campaign, but picking up a maiden win in his first try is definitely a step in the right direction.

Wake Up Nick is an intriguing pick with five wins and a runner-up in six starts, but none of those were graded-stakes events. This will be a jump in competition for this horse, who might be a value wager if a few things break his way and he finds another gear.

How It Will Play Out

Mr. Z's experience going against top-notch fields throughout this year should pay off as he wins the Delta Downs Jackpot and goes into 2015 with a lot of hope for his three-year-old campaign.

Delta Downs Jackpot Betting Pick: Mr. Z
