Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) F.G1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes
*Keeneland Throat Kick #1 Burning Ambition (6/1) – The Chad Brown runners look very tough in here, but the Ductor can see this filly as a potential up setter. She’s been steadily progressing and you won’t see many fillies win as easy as she did last time. She gets the acid test today and the Ductor thinks she’ll answer the bell.
Race 9: 1 Mile. Alw 86000n1x
#9 Mr. Tip (5/1) – This is a very versatile horse and is exiting a very good 2nd on turf last time. He’s 1/1 at this distance on dirt and defeated a contender #4 Winter Poole (7/2) in that effort. Mr. Tip will undoubtedly go off higher than 5/1 here too.
Race 10: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Alw 88000n2x
#3 Ghosting Kim (8/1) – 1/1 over this turf course and cutting back to her best distance today, she looks to run a top effort 3rd off the layoff. She likes softer ground, which she’ll get today along with pace to run at.
