Tural-lure No Lie
Today's Keeneland feature, the Grade 1 Maker's 46 Mile, is always a highly anitipated event won by many quality individuals. The two favorites, Turallure (7-5) and Get Stormy (9-5), certainly qualify on that score. And then there's Doubles Partner (5-1), who never gets his due but nevertheless seems to improve from year to year.
Of all the separaters in spots like these are experience and success and the Grade 1 level, which gets us back to the two favorites, and Turallure, from the Lopresti barn which, if you're not a stats freak, might not realize that he's an fairly amazing 36% efficient with layups of greater than 90 days. Factor in excellent performance figures and solid G1 credentials and you have a most probable winner.
Taking Turallure to win, no price restrictions, and keying him in multiples with his two rivals here.
