KEENELAND BC RACES FOR FRIDAY

Race 6

BC JUVENILE TURF

The Euros have won 6 of the last eight. The best of the Euros are No. 4 Shogun (12-1), No. 13 Cymric (7-2) a Gosden runner, and No. 14 Hit It a Bomb (9-2) trained by O’Brien. The best from the states are No. 8 Airoforce (4-1) and No. 12 Camelot Kitten (12-1) who exits the same race. 4-8-12-13-14

Race 7

THE LAS VEGAS BC DIRT MILE

Price plays have been the name of this race. Until Goldencents won last year it was all prices in the past. No. 3 Liam’s Map is even money and one tough cookie and the one to beat. If he gets into any kind of suicidal pace with a few of the other front runners things could get dicey but if he gets clear he will be gone. No. 5 Lea at 8-1 will be the one to fear late and we will use both with No. 1 Red Vine and No. 9 Tapiture. 3-5 with 1-9

Race 8

BC JUVENILE TURF

No. 7 Sapphire Kitten (10-1) and No. 8 Harmonize (7-2) just ran one two on this course with Harmonize beating Kitten by a slim neck. We will key on both with No. 3 Alice Springs an O’Brien runner, No. 4 Catch a Glimpse with the hot riding Geroux and No. 11 Illuminate with Dettori.

7-8 with 3-4-10 and a dime super box with all five.

Race 9

THE BC DISTAFF

We will take our shot in here and key on No. 12 Got Lucky at 6-1 and hope we do get lucky, she is one of 3 Pletcher runners in here. Pletcher also sends out No. 4 Stopchargingmaria and No. 8 Curalina. We will also use No. 2 Frivolous (30-1) who exits the same race as Got Lucky, No. 4 Wedding Toast (4-1), No. 10 Yahilwa (20-1) who also exits the race and is the speed. No. 11 Untapable (5-1, late scratch) with JR and the hard hitting No. 14 Sheer Drama. 12 (9-2) is the key runner.

Win and place 12

DEL MAR

Race 1

No. 1 Classico is a second time starter for O’Neill, he was sent off at 6/5 in his first start and ran an even third behind No. 5 Knight of Drama, we will use both. 1-5

Race 2

No. 2 Malibu Dude is a second time starter who was sent off at 7/5 in his first start, he ran an even fourth and gets the bug boy Ty Kennedy today, No. 7 Turn Your Eyes beat the Malibu Dude last out. 2-7

Race 3

In a race loaded with early speed we will use No. 1 Public House who will sit off the hot pace and launch down the lane and No. 3 Hail Mary Play who showed she can rate when she won last out when well bet at first asking. 1-3

Race 4

They go sprinting five furlongs on the grass, No. 3 No Comparison broke her maiden here at this turf distance, No. 2 Silver Mojave just missed going down the hill and ran ok on this course back in August. No. 8 Sky Forever ran second here back in August on this course when Bejarano rode her and he gets back on today. 2-3-8

Race 5

The drop in class for No. 2 Appealing Lady makes her a big danger, No. 3 Warren’s Purrfect has run back to back good races at this level but is a hanger. No. 7 Chicago Angel likes to run second but gets the bug boy Kennedy today. 2-3-7

Race 6

Brian Pedroza is in town for how long we do not know, but he gets on the very live Proctor runner No. 1 Another House  who will be launching late, No. 6 Dylan Ward is always right there and is due to break through, Santiago Gonzalez gets his second shot with this 4yo. No. 1-6

Race 7

THE 200K GOLDEN STATE JUVENILE AT 7 FURLONGS

No. 2 Smokey Image will try to make it five in a row, he won here back in Septemeber wire to wire when beating No. 9 Found Money. No. 8 Mana Strike looked good winning at first asking at the Gate and will be the one to fear late and Leslie Mawing comes in to ride for Frank Lucarelli. 2-8-9

Race 8

They go a flat mile on the grass, love the work out pattern on No. 1 Bal a Bali who gets some big class relief, No. 4 Texas Ryano is in top form and looking for the hat trick. No. 5 Ganesh is the stablemate of Bal a Bali and also gets some class relief. Brian Pedroza rides again for Proctor as he gets on No. 6 Kulik Lodge who is a very hard hitter. 1-4-5-6

Race 9

No. 2 Fab Four Ever will sit right off the pace and get the jump on them turning for home, No. 3 Aloha Ke Akua exits the same race as the Fab Four and just missed by a head, she gets her second start off the Bill Spawr claim. 2-3
