This Sunday is another perfect weekend on tap…. The only thing that could make it better, is that it will be held in Lexington, Kentucky at Keeneland. You better hurry, there are only days left in the meet…

We like a couple of runners for Sunday, and the weather should shake out nicely. So, take a look and plan ahead.

Here is the first of the card that deserves a look. Go to Race #1, #4 Jilly from Philly (9-5). Ridden by Robby Albarado and trained by Hugh Robertson, who is winning at 29% in Lexington.

He has been away from the races for 56 days. Drops in class from maiden special weight down to maiden claiming $50,000. Goes from Florent Geroux to Robby Albarado, and this is a strong rider change. Ships in from Chicago, and all runners have run well from Arlington.

Race #4 go to #2 Richland Creek (7-2). Julien Leparoux in the irons for Chad Brown, and they team up to win 20%. Goes from turf to poly track, and makes makes his second start off a claim. Brown wins 27% of the time. He swung 5 wide out last time, and as a shipper, his trainer wins 25%. The drop fits him well, and should be a major player on this day.

Race #5, look at #11 Aronia (7-2). 1/2 over the synthetics, and was just claimed for $50,000. Sunday he drops in for claiming $40,000… Go figure.. Could this be a betting barn? The blinkers on yields a 23% win rate, and fresh off a race at Presque Isle on the poly track. 5/8 ITM in 2009, and 1/1 at Keeneland with a win….

So, build on this for the day. Download your data, and compare these selections against the tier levels. Also, be sure to watch for any track changes on the turf, and you can change that up with your track condition dropdown box on the form.

Good luck!
