Sea Queen to Cruise in Keeneland Feature


No matter how one tries the break down today's Keeneland feature for fillies on the turf going 9 furlongs, the race still runs through the uncoupled pair from Christophe Clement; Sea Queen (3-1) and Valseuse (2-1).

However, Lawn Party (3-1), making her second start for Todd Pletcher following an impressive GP graduation in debut, and Passing Pfast (6-1), going first time for Graham Motion, making a switch to Rosie, are no less intriguing.

But Sea Queen had her hooves held to the first in her second start I the G3 Herecomesthebride but now returns to her proper level with more than sufficient pedigree, is being reunited with Joel Rosario, and is nicely drawn inside and figures to be the controlling speed if her connections wish.

And Rosario loves to be aggressive in spots like this one.

We' taking Sea Queen to win at 5-2 or greater and key boxing her first and second with her rivals here, extra ticket with Lawn Party, should she draw in from the AEs.

Going All In on Poker Player


Today's Keeneland feature, the G3 Lexington Stakes for 3YOs going a mile and a sixteenth, has attracted a sizable and highly competitive bunch. Of those, we're most interested in price shot Poker Player (10-1), part of an uncoupled pair from Wayne Catalano.

Colt never recovered from a poor start in the Spiral Stakes following a might-have-been-best placing coming from far back in Battaglia Memorial behind his loose leading stablemate.

He is 1-for-1 at KEE, taking the G3 Bourbon Stakes at 2, switches to hot riding Stewart Elliott, and Catalano is an other-worldly 47% profitable when removing blinkers, the case here.

Taking Power Player to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing in exactas with the classy Mr Speaker (5-2) and recent very sharp maiden breaker Dynamic Impact (10-1).

Fleet Fleet First to Finish First in Big A feature


Shifting the scene to the Big A where the preliminary allowances feature for state-breds 3 & up going a flat mile looks loaded with possibility that you will be rewarded wherever you land. I left five of these New Yorkers open but ultimately must settle on Fleet First.

In a race where the contestants have had many chances in this condition, Fleet First will try to parlay his smart maiden win into two straight in only his third lifetime start.

After getting a run in his debut, the money showed when blinkers were added and the George Weaver gelded 3YO responded with a 3-1/2 length going-away score. Coming back to work sharply since, he owns enough tactical speed and kick to get this done with today's favorable race dynamics.

Taking Fleet First (8-1) to win with no price restrictions, and key-boxing him first and second with Frost Jordan (8-1) for barn that's a profitable 38% after adding blinkers, Wise Guide (20-1), a willing third over surface and distance and returns for barn 25% profitable first off the claim, and Chrisandlorisposse (3-1), returning to the main track for live Jimmy Jerkens shed.
