Keeneland 8th: The $250k Grade II Phoenix Stakes to be run at six furlongs. It’s hard to separate the top two choices in this event. No. 3 Whitmore is a seasoned veteran who always shows up for work. He’s had a summer vacation and we believe that is a good thing. Also, his sheet figures suggest that a huge effort is in store off of this layoff. No.7 Promises Fulfilled won this event last year and is certainly capable of repeating. Anything close (speed figure wise) to that July 6th race at Belmont will get it done. No. 6 Hog Creek Hustle has gotten very good as of late. Huge Grade 1 win at Saratoga back in August.

My Pick:  Win 3  Exacta Box 3-6-7  Trifecta Box 1-3-6-7
