Rescheduled Keeneland Grade 3 Yields Same Opinion


In determining who gets the lion's share of today's Keeneland feature, redrawn post positions altered everything but the conclusion; proven improvement at 3 and recency over classier 2 year old form and inactivity.

It's still A Lot (5-2), who has developed in a big way in SoFla this winter for Bill Mott, over Luck of the Kitten (9-5), the game runner-up in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf when last seen.

While the speedy 'Kitten' now has the benefit of the pole, the smaller field likely will be an aid to the tactical A Lot, giving Johnny V. lots of options from the outside, assuming a clean break.

Taking A Lot to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with Luck of the Kitten, and adding underrated price shot Majestico (8-1) to the super-exotics mix.

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

Profit to Date: $113.90

It’s Two…Two Tips in One


With today's Arkansas Derby virtually conceded to American Pharoah at extremely short odds, the Coolmore Lexington is a better betting alternative, as is the G3 Top Flight at the Big A. So, owing to yesterday's scratch, a bonus Saturday selection.

With Bob Baffert and Todd Pletcher shipping in a couple of promising, albeit non-Derby-starting 3YOs, and the highly regarded Donworth skipping an allowance spot Thursday in favor of this, chances are good there will be some value offered on early line favorite Divining Rod.

Battle test in two graded stakes at Tampa Bay, his experience, ability to compete at this level, and a rider switch to Keeneland-savvy Julien Leparoux, it may be possible to get the posted early line odds of 5-2 at post time.

We're taking Divining Rod to win, no price restrictions, a boxed exacta with Donworth, and adding Fame and Power and Comfort to the super-exotics mix.

At the Big A, House Rules is 6-5 on the early line to win the mile and an eighth G3 Top Flight. We're taking Got Lucky (4-1), coming off a New Pace Top and wide trip in the Rampart after winning her prior, exiting that race with better Energy Ratings than the favorite who's dropping out of G2 Royal Delta.

Today she returns to the Big A where, at 2, she was narrowly beaten in the 9F Demoiselle.

Taking Got Lucky to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with House Rules.

Number of Selections since 2008: 1722

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 519-331

Amount Wagered: $3,444 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,554.30

Profit to Date: $110.30
