Big Winnings


Nothing like a free selection to get you thinking about racing. Here a few runners that really caught my eye, and be sure to check them against the tier levels to find your value for the weekend.




Race #9 – #5 – Rattlesnake Bridge ( 6-1)

Lezcano in the irons, and Kiaran McLaughlin is a winner ! – I like the price, and ran 2nd to Uncle Mo.


Race #7 – G-3 Ben Ali S.- #3 Exhi- ( 6-5)

Lone speed should shake loose early and be gone. I know that 6-5 is no bonus, but this looks like a builder for exotics. – From flag fall to that’s all, and he should walkover this group.

Race #8 – Giant’s Causeway S. – #3 Rose Catherine ( 5-2)

Winning Ponies dubbed her the real deal early on, and I agree….. I think the distance fits, and be sure to check out the weather.  This is no problem, and you get 5-2, bet early and often. BIG RAIN is now expected, and they are off the turf at Keeneland today.

Race #9 – G-3 Coolmore Lexington S. –  #6 Caspers Touch ( 3-1)

I really like this runner, and I am going to play away from Silver Medallion. He was slated to run at Turfway in the Vinery, but opted out. His style looks solid, and being lightly raced weighs in his corner.

Enjoy your holiday weekend, and be sure to watch some of the last action heading to Churchill Downs.

Best of luck !!
