Wild Keeneland Feature on Tap


Things are going so well at Keeneland this spring that the track is offering an NX3 this afternoon--those races hardly fill anymore! Anyway...

As one might expect, there are four or five different ways to go here, all attractive for one reason or another. We're going to throw deep.

Dragon Bay (10-1) appears to have the most upside. Dropping out of a Grade 3 in his second start at 4, his figures on all scales are competitive, he sheds three pounds, was third in his lone start over the course, is gaining maturity and exits a key race that produced two next-out winners.

Taking Dragon Bay to win at 7-1 or greater and keying him in all multiples with Special Ops (10-1), Tale of Fancy (6-1) and Security Risk (5-1).

Taking Bondurant to Steal Makers Mark From the Speed


The Keeneland meet is really outdoing itself in 2017 as the G1 Makers Mark Mile, always a competitively classy championship making event, came up big again.

There's no shortage of speed given the trip, as one would expect, and we think this renewal sets up nicely for late running Bondurant (10-1).

Making his start start off the layup for Ian Wilkes, he returns to his favorite course, loves the trip and exits the Gulf's Canadian Turf that already has produced two next-out winners. Though post? Yes, but that should help insure fair odds.

Taking Bondurant to win at 6-1 or greater and key boxing exactas with two speedsters; Heart to Heart (3-1) and SoCal-fast What a View (5-1).
