Play of the Day
Race Date April 18, 2021
Track Keeneland
Race 5
Overview A very modest 50k starter-allowance that looks ripe for a fresh new face, and #5 MY CANDY GIRL (9-2) clearly fits the bill.
Pace It looks strong, as several have shown early initiative and a want to be on or near the early lead.
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 5
Morning Line (9-2)
Best Bet Overview #5 MY CANDY GIRL (9-2) (turf only): Versatile filly did some good things in NY for Bruce Brown and now goes to Cox, so this is a monumental trainer change, and horses have often improved open lengths when they leave the barn, and this filly was plenty fast enough on figures to begin with, and it’s a great sign that she doesn’t run for a tag.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet at 5-2 or better and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the late Pk5 as well.
