“Mandating” A Victory At Keeneland (10/24/20)

Oct 24th, 2020 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Sloppy and off the turf for the getaway day of the Fall meet — been an average handicapping time here, so let’s see if we can go out with a bang right before the Breeders Cup!

In race 7, American Mandate (#4) has best dirt form in this off the turf sprint and should sit a perfect trip right off the pace and run these down in the lane — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 11.

In race 8, Antigravity (#8) worked well for this and had a good prep here for the money run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 4.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5, 2 and 7

Race 2: 1, 6 and 3

Race 3: 8 (Best Bet) with 1 and 9

Race 4: 3, 10 and 7

Race 5: 5, 2 and 4

Playing The “Market” At Keeneland (10/23/20)

Oct 23rd, 2020 | By | Category: Keeneland, Today's Picks

Fast and good for the Friday card with only race 9 on the turf — only two weeks until the Breeders Cup so wanted to handicap as much as I could before the big days.  I am concerned that the main track is playing so much to speed that it might impact the BC in a way that might be unfair to horses without early speed, so one can only hope the track will be playing fairly by then so everyone will have a fair chance!  4 winners on top last Sunday, so let’s see if I can keep it going today!

In race 8, Market Analysis (#6) needed last and has faced some good ones — should be close to the pace and prevail late.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with 9 and 4.

In race 9, Lady Lawyer (#4) will love the mile distance and had good prep at Kentucky Downs for this — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 7 and 3.

Race 1: 4, 6 and 1

Race 2: 1, 4 and 5

Race 3: 2, 4 and 5

Race 4: 1, 6 and 12

Race 5: 9, 4 and 1

Race 6: 8, 9 and 3

Race 7: 8, 9 and 10

Race 8: 6 (Best Bet) with 9 and 4

Race 9: 4 (Best Bet) with 7 and 3

Race 10: 4, 6 and 3

In race 4, Yellowstone Girl (#5) goes to red hot connections and this one should improve off debut going two turns today — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 1.

In race 5, Lake Nakaru (#6) is working forwardly for this and should sit a perfect stalking trip and wear these down late at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 4 and 5
