PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Keeneland – Race 8 
Race overview:  A non-descript N2L allowance, with a few who seem stuck in neutral, which isn’t the case with #5 BRAGANZA (5-2), who enters off a strong 2nd last time at FG. 
Pace:  There’s not a ton of true sprint speed here, with #3 Send for Me (7-2) likely making the lead, so laying close early seems imperative for success late. 
Trends:  The main track has played fair for the most part, with a slight tilt towards speed last Friday and Saturday, though as a general rule of thumb, it’s never a bad thing to be close here on the dirt. 
Best Play:  #5 BRAGANZA (5-2): Lightly-raced runner was a strong—and fast—2nd at FG last time, drew well to be outside the (expected) speed of #3 Send for Me (7-2), and will get first run on the rest. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
