Play of the Day
Race Date October 30, 2021
Track Keeneland
Race 9
Overview A real head-scratcher of a N2L for 2yos on turf, with several looking the same—and a bit uninspiring—on paper, and one in #9 NORTH COUNTY (12-1), who looked awesome winning on debut against lesser at Indiana Grand.
Pace It should be a relatively tight group early, as there doesn’t appear to be a ton of pace in here, so, like most turf races, expect a bunched sprint in the lane.
Trends The turf has been a little on the speedy side, though they are running only a few a day on it, and it looked pretty beat up Wednesday, so take note of the course condition as well.
Number 9
Morning Line (12-1)
Best Bet Overview #9 NORTH COUNTY (12-1) (turf only): Bet down to evens on debut for Walsh, who isn’t a guy who cranks them early, and the win was a real beauty, so there’s no reason she can’t handle the rise in class, against a group that has far from distinguished themselves.
Picks & Plays WPS bet and a must-use/potential bold leverage single to end an extremely difficult early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
