Last Time Going To The Well
It’s Time For Some Price Horses To Win
Keeneland R1|Post Time: 1 pm ET
Dirt About 7 Furlongs|3↑ Clm 30000N2L|Purse: $47K
Three have a shot to take this race. Todd Pletcher is 25% going from allowance to claiming, 30% overall in claiming races, and 27% first time for a tag…add 27% first time for a tag whilst 2nd off a layoff, which makes 6-Mahaamel (8/5) the ML favorite. Trainer Joe Sharp no slouch at this action as he is 31% with first time for a tag horses running 2nd off a layoff, so going to add 5-Flint Ridge (6/1) to the ticket and 2-Lucky Boss (4/1) who ships in from the west coast and Diodoro 27% from turf to dirt. This Street Boss gelding is zero for six on the grass and 7/1-1-1 on dirt for $90K.
Keeneland R2|Post Time: 1:32 pm ET
Dirt 6 Furlongs|3↑ Md 20000|Purse: $43K
I have two in this. 10-Bucky Bik Coin (8/1) for 31% turf to dirt trainer Desormeaux. A sharp :48.2 work less than a week ago and an outside draw has a chance to go gate to wire. 5-Bourbon On Fire (3/1) is likely to take the final drop before graduating and any jockey change at this point can be viewed as a positive as Leparoux had three cracks and could not get it done.

Dirt 6.5 Furlongs|2YOMd 150000|Purse: $69K
32% off the claim trainer Falcone saddles 8-Mr. Bob (10/1) who had two solid works before shipping from the northeast. Second time starter for Dale Romans, 7-Boudin (7/2) has a pair of :48 works leading in and flashed some speed last out. 9-Hill Of Tara (9/2) has been beaten by the likes of stakes winners Tom’s Regret and Mo Strike, so this drop should allow him a shot. 3-Golden Bandit (2/1) - can you argue Brad Cox’s record of 39% with horses going from msw to mcl?
