Saturday’s Race Recap from Keeneland:
(All odds US)
Race 3: 6th@ 3.67/1
Race 9: 7th@ 5.21/1
Race 10: 1st@ 0.75/1 - BEST BET🔥🔥🔥
In Race 3, Eyes on Target tracked the 1/1 favorite in mid-pack looking like he wanted to keep that one hemmed in. He went wide on the far turn and lacked room before flattening out. In Race 9, Empirestrikesfast had a little traffic trouble early, came under a ride on the turn and faded in the drive. In the Grade 1 Jenny Wiley, our BEST BET finally got us on the board as In Italian went to the lead, set a reasonable pace and opened up under a hand drive to a clear cut and decisive score.
Saturday’s Race Recap from Aqueduct:
(All odds US)
Race 3: SCRATCH
Race 5: 10th@ 8.90/1
Race 7: 2nd@ 8.00/1
After a scratch in Race 3, Union Tap made his turf debut in Race 5 while never threatening. In Race 7, Starts Now got a great trip off the speed, switched out turning for home and was all out while finishing a neck behind 41/1 debut runner Kosuke.
A BEST BET first, an 8/1 second and a whole lotta junk behind that.
Let’s close out the week with a Sunday card from Aqueduct where fast and firm conditions are expected. Let’s get to it!
Race 8: Respectfully - 1 pt win (US Morning Line Odds: 20/1)
Turf sprinters square off going 6 furlongs on the grass in this allowance race where I have a feeling Respectfully ironically won’t get the respect she deserves. She’s our selection here at 20/1 odds as she breaks from the rail with good early speed. She also adds blinkers today - a move that translated to a win the last time she added that equipment. Trainer David Jacobson has always been one who can sneak one in at a price and he wins with 21% of his runners returning 2nd off a layoff. Looking for a gate to wire tour de force at long odds.
Best of luck to all our members playing Sunday’s races from Aqueduct!
