Conditioning Dictates in Elkhorn


Today's Keeneland feature is the G2 Elkhorn at a mile and a half for older horses on turf and a competitive heat it is. Given recency, history and conditioning, Unitarian (9-2) seems very logical at playable odds.

A winner of this last year, he got all the conditioning he needed from his two-mile Allen Jerkens finale, was given recovery time, and has trained purposefully for this since. At 5, it appears he finally has gotten his act completely together.

Taking Unitarian to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with fresh lone speedster My Afleet (10-1) and promising import Biz The Nurse, adding the sharp, fast working Dramedy (20-1) to the super-exotics mix.


Number of Selections since 2008: 1726

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 521-331

Amount Wagered: $3,452 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,566.00

Profit to Date: $114.10

Clement Import Looks Stellar


Let's go up north to the Big A, which is what Christophe Clement did with recent import Stellar Path, entered in today's featured Plenty of Grace Stakes.

We have learned it is folly to bet against CC's runners making their first U.S. starts, and this 4YO races fresh, which proved her best game in Europe.

First time Lasix, she can handle any ground and gets an inside draw in a small field. It's her, and Luis Saez's, race to lose.

Taking Stellar Path to win, no price restrictions, and going for value in a cold exacta with Principessa Ava, who had difficult set-ups in both recent graded starts at Tampa Bay.


Number of Selections since 2008: 1725

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 520-331

Amount Wagered: $3,450 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,561.90

Profit to Date: $111.90

An Encounter of the Fleet Kind in Lexington


The first of two co-features at Keeneland today is a gate full of turf sprinting females going 5-1/2 furlongs with a number of fillies making their season's debuts. Two of them are among the first two favorites; the one we prefer, however, will offer value.

Fleet Encounter (8-1) makes her first start of the year off a series of sharp works at Hawthorne and hails from a barn, Mark Cristel's, whose shippers often outrun their odds. Her best quality, however, is her record at the trip, owning a (10) 6-3-0 slate. Further, she has a versatile style, allowing Corey Lanerie to play it off the break.

Taking Fleet Encounter to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the very speedy Adventure Love (5-2) and uber sharp Sugar Sweet (4-1).


Number of Selections since 2008: 1724

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 520-331

Amount Wagered: $3,448 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,561.90
