Hey it’s Andrew and I’m back for another appearance trying to crack the code of Kentucky Downs.
Pick 5 (6-10) – 3,4,7,12 w 3,6 (14 if enters) w 8,11,12 w 5,7,9,10, w 4,10 = $96 or $144
Race 1- 11-12-2
#11 Aircraft Carrier ran over this surface in her 2nd career start and returns today a year later with more experience and maturity. One to beat here.
#12 Kay Two- i’m hoping he runs back to her career debut. Weak Wide Open field and first time over a course like this so who knows.
#2- Shy is a pretty even horse, but has some early speed and some experience.
Race 2- 8-2-12
#8 Hollywood Talent hasn’t been on the turf course since 2016 and his debut on the turf was over the KD turf course in which he won and it was at this distance. So he is the horse for course in this field.
#2- Mano Fox has been unstoppable against this company and cheaper over at Beltera since moving to the turf. He stretches out today so hopefully he keeps it up.
#12- Curlino should get all the money based off his latest effort. Never ran 6F on the turf especially on this type of course so I expect some flaws.
Race 3- 4-6-7-1
#4 Timeisnotyourfriend is a Wesley Ward first timer that is gelded and gets his stable jockey Garcia aboard. Ward 2yos should be ready to fire.
#6 Souper Smart, has good connections and an incredible work tab.
#7 Pocket book looks interesting based off of his early speed in his first two trips over the grass.
#1 Indian Interpreter is my wild card horse. Lot of changes done to this horse since june. Keep an eye on this horse.
Race 4- 1-12-6
#1 Downton Kitten has only one race under her belt. However it was over in Great Britain. She won her debut at 1Mile over an European turf course so she has an advantage in that department. The stretch out should be beneficial. She is also a KY Bred.
#12 Havana Moon this horse wants to go this distance. She ran this distance once over in France and ran 3rd in a stake. Should be a threat.
#6 Kitten’s Slew is looking for her 3rd straight win and stretches out the farthest this race.
Race 5- 2-1-8
#2 War Tom should like the extra distance and ran very well in debut. If he gets a better trip he should be live.
#1 Strong Current was green in debut over turf. The cut back in distance and change of scenery should be beneficial.
#8 Just Like Richie should be a bomb that would blow up the tote board. Troubled trip in only trip over the turf. and cuts back in distance.
Race 6- 4-12-11
#4 Miner’s Cat ran twice over the turf and the only win out of those two times came at this distance over this course last year.
#12 Frozen Hannah is a speedy horse and could go gate to wire.
#11 Whole Scoop has early speed and HOFer Borel aboard so expect a HOF trip
Race 7- 3-6-14
#3 American Frolic might be the best horse in this field. I like the connections and like his run history so I put her on top.
#6 Galilianco is a FTS with great connections and great turf breeding.
#14 Girl’s Night is an AE but if she gets in she might be the winner.
Race 8- 11-8-12
#11 Triple Chelsea is much the best in this field. But we will see.
#8 Princess Princess has a ton of early speed and should be a weapon early on.
#12 Seeking Treasure is a closer but at a price anything can happen. Especially at KD.
Race 9- 10-5-9
#10 One go All Go has a ton of early speed, and won in his debut at KD last year at this distance.
#5 Sir Dudley Digges likes more distance but this distance is also perfectly fine. One of the more consistent horses in the field.
#9 Oscar Nominated needs more distance but should get a piece based off class.
Race 10- 9-4-11
#9 Many Waters is the only Euro horse in the field and should be a monster in this field with her experience over this type of course.
#4 Sapphire Jubilee should love the distance and showed she wanted more in her debut.
#11 Meister Legend should also like the extra distance.
