Friday Feature at Keeneland

On this Friday, we look at a nice route coming from magnificent Keeneland.

Keeneland Race 9 {Doubledogdare~G3~1 1/16 mile~4 year old~fillies/mares~Stakes}
An equally capable field of eight gals will go to the gate for this feature race.  Any one of them could win this one.  There are enough forwardly placed types to keep the pace honest.  It should be a fine race.

#5 Mystical Star (Lezcano / Clement) looks ready coming off a decent effort in a longer Turf route and putting in one good workout.  She has competed well over the synthetic and holds the highest speed number over the Keeneland track.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#3 Inglorious (Leparoux / J. Carroll) will challenge with the third highest last out speed number and a two race progression prior to a modest layoff.  She has put in three mighty workouts prepping for this race.  This gal holds the highest speed number at the distance.
$1 SHOW.

#7 Lotta Lovin (A. Garcia / Maker) is coming off a ninety day layoff and should contend.  She holds the second highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and three superb workouts.  This filly should be found close to the pace ready to roll.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#8 Minakshi [FR] (Rocco / Matz) will be making her first North America start after a fine career racing in France.  In her last out she posted a high quality rating and was working a three race progression before a long layoff.  This well bred gal has strung together three strong workouts in the last thirty days.  She could be found forwardly placed perhaps leading the group.

#6 Sisterhood (Rosario / Ward) should be in the mix with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and two robust workouts.  She holds the second highest speed number at the distance and has done well over the synthetic surface scoring the second highest speed number over the Keeneland track.  Expect her to be either forwardly placed or mid-pack.

10 CENT Superfecta

#5 Mystical Star / #3 Inglorious / #7 Lotta Lovin / #8 Minakshi [FR], #6 Sisterhood.
