Treasure of the Sierra Alpha


Interesting feature to begin the final days of the Keeneland meet, a mile and a half on the turf that drew a well matched field of seven.

En Fuego (2-1) is very likely to go favored off his big finish at the distance following a layup last out, Christophe Clement switching to Garrett Gomez. He was also a good second on this course at the trip last fall.

But the interesting horse is 4 year old Sierra Alpha (5-2) who has the most upside and finished strongly to win his U. S. debut at the distance in South Florida but lost the victory via a controversial DQ.

Sharp enough to win on the turnback last out, he stretches back out for his owner-trainer and Jose Lezcano gets along with him very well.

Taking Sierra Alpha to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with En Fuego and Center Divider, working well locally for his first start for Chad Brown.

Take Class Dropper in Wide Open Scramble


Today’s Keeneland feature, the G3 Doubledogdare is another killer handicapping puzzle, a mile and a sixteenth on Polytrack for older fillies and mares. There are any number of stakes fillies in here but the best ones seem to prefer turf.

But not necessarily It’s Tea Time (5-1), who has been most of her winning on turf but has run her best figures on a synthetic surface.

Further, she’s been repeatedly tested at the G1 level, Rusty Arnold is at his best with third-off-a-layoff runners and he reaches out for Javier Castellano, adept at working out good trips in large fields. Today’s class relief should help.

Taking It’s Tea Time to win at 5-1 or greater and boxing her in the exacta with Hollendorfer shipper, Washington Bridge (6-1).
