Maker & Ramsey Seeking Another Keeneland Title


Today's Keeneland feature is a secondary allowances for older turf males going 1-1/16 miles and it appears to be a classy, fast-working returnee from a very live barn vs. a horse making its second start off a layup for the meet's leading connections.

And the latter, Granny's Kitten (4-1), owns better performance figures and gets blinkers for Mike Maker, a nine-time meet winner and 22% in this eye-wear scenario. The works are solid and Ken Ramsey wants this leading owner title. He's made it a habit of it here.

Clearly, early line favorite Sky Hero (5-2) is going to take lots of money while getting class relief, owning a workout regimen that won't quit and the hot riding Julien Leparoux in the boot.

Taking Granny's Kitten to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with Sky Hero and adding Any Given Royal (8-1) and Town Extension (6-1) to the exotics mix.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2010

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 599-388

Amount Wagered: $4,020.00 [$2 to win only]

Looking for Success in Gulf Feature


Today's Gulfstream feature is at 5 furlongs for older sprinters on turf and any way you look at two horses dominate the rest. Naturally, they are the favorites.

But we'll give a slight edge and a slight upset nod to Successful Native (5-2) over early favorite Do the Roar (2-1) from the excellent turf barn of Antonio Cioffi.

However, not only does 'Native' have highly competitive figures on both the Thoro Graph and Pricci Energy scales but he exits a live race (two next-out winners) and actually won it despite breaking through the stalls at the start. How often do you see that.

The spacing is good, he's nicely positioned and Matthew Rispoli is a talented young rider. He's won four starts at today's trip and over this ground.

Taking Successful Native to win at 2-1 or greater, boxing the exacta with the favorite, and adding late developing gelded 4YO Posse Dreamin (6-1) to the exotics mix.

Getting a Good Response from Keeneland


Of the two Keeneland co-features today we're going back to the well for a turf marathon in which Good Response (3-1) makes his return. Since returning to top form last May, he's not taken a backward step. Gelded 5YO returns off layup for McLaughlin, a profitable 24% in that scenario.

Taking Good Response to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with fast finishing Bokeelia Island (2-1).


Number of Selections since 2007: 2009

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 599-388

Amount Wagered: $4,018.00 [$2 to win only]
