Nature and Nurture the Key to Victory at Keeneland


Back to Keeneland for a similar featured event today, a one mile allowances for 3 & ups only this one if for the fillies.

While not usually our tack, we're taking a first time turf runner against proven grass fillies, but there's no question that Spelling Again rates to appreciate the surface switch.

Not only is she bred for turf, she's bred for distance on both sides of her pedigree. and she has nurture going for her as well.

Graham Motion has been very live at this meet and here is asking a late developing 3YO, one that has improved since adding blinkers two starts back, to try turf in her second start following a layoff. Both scenarios are profitable for this barn. Coming out of sprints and positioned in the middle of the field, she should be nicely placed when Robby Albarado asks her for run.

Taking Spelling Again to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing her with late running Seanchai and another late developing sophomore, High Wire Kitten.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1631

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 494-317-251

Amount Wagered: $3,262 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,384.80

Profit to Date: $122.80

Bim Bam Thank You Sir


Today's Keeneland feature is a highly competitive turf mile for older allowance types.

Free World (5-2) is clearly the in-form distance specialist with a 3-for-4 slate at the trip and fast figures for the Moss-Amoss team, a worthy favorite.

But then so is Bim Bam (10-1) highly effective at this distance at 4-for-12, is coming off a streak of his own, seeking a fourth straight score while reuniting with winning rider Ricardo Santana albeit making his first start since August. But he has shown some affinity for Keeneland turf and the dynamic suits his late kick.

Taking Bim Bam to win at 6-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the favorite and multiple winner Edge of Reality (5-1) from the live Motion shedrow.

Hoping to Avoid a Slumber Party


Today's Belmont feature is for older horses going 10 furlongs on the inner turf.

Clearly, Slumber (6-5), dropping from graded stakes in his return and working strongly, is a deserving favorite on class lines. But we're opting for recency here with Sky Blazer (4-1).

A dropdown himself, out of the key G2 Bernard Baruch that produced two next out winners, is back at a proper distance and fits well given the dynamics with Lezcano in the boot.

Taking Sky Blazer to win at 3-1 or better and an exacta box with Slumber, a winner of half his six lifetime starts on this course.
