“Chatterbox” Speaks Loudly At Keeneland (10/30/15)

Oct 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and yielding for day 1 of the Breeders Cup at Keeneland — a very competitive card from top to bottom, including the first 4 BC races, so see how a drying out main track and turf course are playing and play accordingly.

In race 9, The Grade 1 BC Distaff, I’m a Chatterbox (#1) gets perfect stalking post in a race filled with speed and may sit the trip at a price and outfinish these if trouble free — key in all doubles, pick 3′s and pick 4 and play an exacta box with #’s 12 and 7.  My original choice, Sheer Drama (#14) is marooned way on the outside and if she wins from here, she beats me!

In race 6, The Grade 1 BC Juvenile Turf, Airoforce (#8) took last when wide all the way and on this turf course — has leading connections at the meet and will be 3-1 or higher.  Key in all doubles, pick 3′s and pick 4 and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 7.

In race 7, The Grade 1 BC Dirt Mile, Lea (#5) has faced monsters in handicap division on dirt and was supposed to race in the Turf Mile on Saturday, but seemingly found a better spot for Mott who knows how to place them — Liam’s Map (#3) is the best horse, but may be compromised by a fast pace and will be a very short price, so why not try and beat with a quality animal like Lea.

In race 8, The Grade 1 BC Juvenile Fillies Turf, Sapphire Kitten (#7) did everything but get unsaddled in last turf stake at Keeneland — can turn the tables on Harmonize (#8) and will be a much bigger price.  Key in all doubles, pick 3′s and pick 4 and play an exacta box with #’s4 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
