Play of the Day
Race Date April 16, 2022
Track Keeneland
Race 9
Overview A solid renewal of the G3 Lexington, with 20 Derby qualifying points on the line for the winner.
Pace There’s very little on paper, and some of the favorites are deep closers—and it must be noted this 1 1/16-mile distance runs to the first finish line, which is a big disadvantage to those types.
Trends It’s been tough to get a gauge on how the main track is playing, since a few of the cards have been run on off tracks to start and then converted to fast by the end of the day, but Wednesday and Thursday definitely tilted towards speed.
Number 7
Morning Line (4-1)
Best Bet Overview #7 MAJOR GENERAL (4-1): Stakes winning 2yo lost all chance at the start in his G2 comeback at Tampa but Pletcher forges on, adds blinkers, and Irad lands here too, and in a race where the lead is there for the taking, expect an aggressive ride if this son of Constitution gets an alert beginning.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and a potential single/must-use in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
