PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  4/13/24 
Featured track  Keeneland  
Race number  10 
Race overview  A modest renewal of the G3 Lexington for 3yos at the short stretch/finish line of 1 1/16 miles on the main track. 
Pace  There’s no real speed here, which should allow #5 Hades (7-2)—provided he gets off to an alert beginning this time—to control things from the start. 
Trends  The main track was speedy and inside Opening Weekend, as very few horses came from too far off the pace, and at this short stretch/finish line, it’s next to impossible to make up significant ground late, so you better have some tactical speed, at least. 
Best Play  #5 HADES (7-2): Expected Lone F didn’t break then got checked early in the G1 Florida Derby, and hated it from there, in a completely throwout race, but this trip is perfect, he’s (by all indications from the connections) doing great, and he’s just better than this group. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
