Weekday picks and plays for Thoroughbred racing.

Thursday, July 30

Delaware Park, Race 6: Maiden special weight (6 furlongs, 3:45 p.m. ET)

#2 Kenny Had a Notion (7-2 on the morning line) looks live on debut for trainer Dale Capuano, a 25% winner with first-time starters.

A son of Great Notion (who sires 18% debut winners), Kenny Had a Notion has posted a long, steady series of workouts at Laurel Park. He hasn’t missed a beat since his first breeze May 18, and he wrapped up with a bullet 5 furlongs from the starting gate in 1:01.60 Sunday.

With jockey Alex Cintron (a 19% winner at Delaware Park) in the saddle, Kenny Had a Notion can come out running and vie for victory against just five rivals.

We’ll bet him to win and key him in the trifecta, with #5 Don’t Dare Me (9-5) and #6 Full Dinner Jacket (5-2), who likewise bring strong work tabs to the mix for trainers who have done well with 2-year-olds at Delaware Park.

$10 to win on #2 Kenny Had a Notion
$1.50 trifecta: 2 with 5,6 with 5,6 ($3)
$3.50 trifecta: 5,6 with 2 with 5,6 ($7)
Total: $20

Good luck!
