Play of the Day
Race Date April 17, 2021
Track Keeneland
Race 5
Overview A deep and competitive starter-allowance, though one that could be ripe for a fresh new face.
Pace It looks solid enough, as there are more than a few that have shown speed and want to be close to the lead early.
Trends It’s tough to see any visible trends on the turf, as they usually just card a few a day (during the week), but for the most part the course can be demanding, at least in routes, and therefore I tend to side with stalker/closers.
Number 4
Morning Line (7-2)
Best Bet Overview #4 SUMMER PALACE (7-2) (turf only): Thought this one looked really sharp braking his maiden at FG and now he goes off the claim for Sharp (11%), who reaches for Saez, which is a great sign, and it’s not like this lightly-raced 4yo will need to improve that much to win right back.
Picks & Plays WP bet, EXBX with #9, and a must-use to end the early Pk5/Pk4.
