Superfecta Sunday at Keeneland

A few days into the Fall Keeneland meet and already the 10 CENT Superfecta's are paying handsomely.  Today we take a look at some of the splendid fillies and mares in a wonderful grade one route.

Keeneland Race 8 {Juddmonte Spinster~G1~1 1/8 mile~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}
A full field of thirteen gals will go to the gate in this annual grade one route.  All of these ladies are lightly raced this year.  Most are returning to the track after a brief freshening making this contest all the more exciting.  Forwardly placed types dominate the group which may make for an off the pace gal to earn the victory. 

Such full-blooded fields are a 10 CENT Superfecta handicappers dream.  Therefore try we must to fashion a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#3 Aruna (Dominguez / Motion) is the deserving favorite with a field stacked with speedsters and pressers.  She holds the second highest speed number at the distance, is coming off a longer route and has put in two judicious workouts.  She can be expected to fly off the pace.

#11 Mystical Star (Lezcano / Clement) will challenge with the fourth highest last out speed number off a longer route, holds two wins in two races at this distance, and has put in three fabulous peaking workouts.  She is ready to sit close to the pace and dive into the fray in the stretch.

#7 Upperline (Graham / Stidham) may surprise with the third highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and four sensational workouts.  This veteran loves the polytrack racing well at Arlington Park, Keeneland, and Woodbine.  She is another that will sit relatively close to the pace and launch a terrific drive in the stretch.  This daughter of Maria's Mon is our bronze horseshoe selection.
$3 SHOW.

#5 In Lingerie (J. Velazquez / Pletcher) will challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four robust, peaking workouts.  She likes tracking the pace and then making her move.  The pace set-up should favor her running style.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#3 Aruna  +  #11 Mystical Star  +  #7 Upperline  +  #5 In Lingerie.
