Sorry, But We’re Leading You Astray

The second division of G3 Valley View at Keeneland for 3YO fillies features the budding turf star Pianist, a worthy 9-5 early line favorite. She owns excellent Equiform figures and has been visually impressive, but we'll take an value offered on Leading Astray (6-1), a head shy of being 6-for-6 on lifetime on turf and game winner of Pucker Up at Arlington last out. Trainer Block is profitable with graded stakes runners and 30% effective with shippers.

Taking Leading Astray to win at 3-1 or greater and boxing her in the exacta with Pianist; using Miz Ida (5-1)--won four of last five--and Freedom Reigns (8-1--tough trips when narrowly beaten by Leading Astray---in super-exotics.

Running Totals: (1184) 367-229-177 Total Dollar Return: $2,502.80 [win selections only]
