Turf racing will take center stage on Tuesday at Parx Racing with the $200,000 Dr. James Penny Memorial Handicap. The Grade 3 event will be contested at a mile and a sixteenth on the turf course and has drawn a field of eight fillies and mares.

The morning line favorite at 9-5 is Effie Trinket, a four-year-old daughter of Freud trained by Rick Violette. The bay filly will be ridden by regular pilot Luis Saez who has been in the irons for her last two victories. She is winless from three starts this year and was recent second as the heavy favorite in the Mount Vernon Stakes against fellow New York-breds at Belmont Park. She has six wins from fourteen starts and is a multiple stakes winner.

Assateague gets change to top rider

Second choice at 5-2 is Assateague for trainer Michael Matz. The five-year-old daughter of Stormy Atlantic has gained the services of top national jockey Joel Rosario who will be aboard for the first time. She has not hit the board from two starts this year but was narrowly defeated in the Intercontinental Stakes in June after a troubled trip. She will carry 119 pounds as the co-highweight with Nellie Cashman.

Graham Motion attempts to continue stakes success

A longshot at odds of 12-1 is Game Fair for Graham Motion who saddled the winner of the Grade 1 United Nations Handicap recently at Monmouth Park. A five-year-old daughter of Quiet American, Game Fair will be ridden by Angel Serpa in search of her first victory since December of 2012. She was last seen finishing fourth on the turf against allowance/optional claiming company in May at Pimlico.
