Only 9 more sleeps until the Derby, Keeneland time, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 3/16. (Turf) F.Alw 81000n1x
#5 Darling Vera (8/1) – She was very impressive in her maiden breaker closing from the clouds into a moderate pace. Her late pace figures give her a chance even though she’s taking on winners for the first time.
Race 2: 1 Mile. F.OC 80000n3x
*Never a Doubt Friday Eve Lock of the Day #4 Jala Jala (7/5) – The Conductor liked her in a stakes race that he can’t remember the name of that she scratched out of last week. This field is much weaker.
Race 3: 1 ½ Miles. (Turf) Alw 81000n1x
#7 Kurlin Rock (4/5) – Chalk.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. MC 20000
#5 Strafford (15/1) – None of the runners with experience have run a figure even close to par for this level. Trainer Lee Thomas can surprise with debut runners.
Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 81000n1x
#5 Lessons From Avery (7/2) – With lots of speed signed on in here, she looks to get a perfect stalking trip.
Race 6: 4 ½ Furlongs. Mdn 60k
#1 Johnny Unleashed (8/1) – He showed real early gas in his debut, he’ll be more fit today.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 85000b
#4 Sensitive (2/1) – 2nd off the layoff, she looks ultra-tough to beat.
Race 8: 4 ½ Furlongs. Mdn 60k
#6 Apple Empire (8/1) – His dam has produced a ridiculous 10 winners from 11 starters and two stakes winners. This colt is also posting bullet works at Keeneland.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 79k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Oxburger (10/1) – This son of tapit was well bet in his debut and had a troubled start. He’ll be a nice price and has a lot of upside.
