Barish’s Free Pick for Keeneland


Race 5

An allowance race on turf to be run at 1 1/16 mile. Top choice is No. 12 Benelux. We think he’s getting better and the sheet number in his last race at Arlington suggests this. No. 6 Lake Nakuru ran very well at the challenging Kentucky Downs venue. No. 1 In Love gets a second try after arriving from Brazil. He can close like a Union Pacific locomotive outside of Kingman’s city limits.
