Mom would say there is a place in purgatory for me for saying something like that. But, I will see you at church…. Churchill…..

Sunday opens a new meeting in Kentucky. Keeneland closes, and it is time for the Twin Spires to shine in the autumn sunlight.

I would like for you to dig in deep with WinningPonies for this meet. Last year, I did very well using the data. You will also want to keep up on charts and races, but the data is as strong as it gets.

Lets kick things off with a couple of tidbits. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Always use Dale Romans in your exotics. He smashes CD… He owns the place….
  • Play runners who have run well in the past.
  • Give poly track runners a race, unless they have trained well over the course or are running on the turf.
  • The turf favors stalkers and closers. Throw out the outside posts, and focus on posts 3-7 to get to the winner’s circle.
  • Use the track condition dropdown for weather changes, as the weather gets dicey this time of year.

With this in mind, let us give you one on the house to build around and start off the meet in fine fashion. Race #3, use #1 Stately Victor (8-5). If you get these odds, you have been leading a lucky life…

This 2-year-old exits a G-1 over the poly track.. I know, I remember… Take a look at the last four workouts. They are all bullets, and they take place in Louisville.  Albarado is in the irons for Mike Maker, and both do very well at this oval… Go back two races and you will see a handsome victory at Saratoga, as Albarado got through on the rail. I see this to be a small time win payoff, but a good opportunity to get fat on multi-race wagers…..
