Outatadore getting bet down to 5/2? You selfish passengers, think about the Ductor one time. Still a strong Friday at Keeneland, let’s keep up the momentum. Skip.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. G3 Bold Ruler Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #8 Runninsonofagun (9/2) – This colt has gotten sneaky good this year, not being embarrassed by the likes of Gunite and Jack Christopher. Then he got away from those monsters at Parx last time, he got a trip from hell and still rallied for a strong 3rd off a dead rail. Facing an even weaker group today, the Ductor is salivating at this morning line.
Race 10: 1 1/16 Mile. (Outer Turf) Alw 50000s
#5 Six Minus (6/1) – This gelding continues to progress with each start for Pletcher and ran well last time off the bench at Kentucky Downs. He now shortens in distance, draws well and Prat hops aboard. There is a lot to like at 6/1.
Race 4: 7 Furlongs. F.Alw 110000n1x
#2 Hypersport (9/2) – #7 Olga Isabel (9/5) is a solid favorite, but the Ductor likes this fillies upside and she’ll be a much better price. She’s shown ability in her young career and ran races in the spring around par for this level. She enters today off a long layoff and developed physically with natural maturity. Add a strong work tab and a weight break today, the Ductor sees her running a career best.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. G2 Hagyard Fayette Stakes
#5 King Fury (8/1) – The small field really hurts the feature race, however the Ductor likes this colt quite a bit. He ran some really strong races as a 2-year-old and has improved in his first two starts at 3. His last race was also better than it looks on paper without the best trip vs tougher horses than he will see today. Making his third start off the layoff, he’s ready to fire a big one.
