Friday Turf at Keeneland

On this, the last Friday of April, we take a peek at a mighty fine Turf race on closing day at Keeneland.

Keeneland Race 9 {Elkhorn~G2~1 1/2 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~Stakes}
A solid group of eleven will go to the green in the closing race of the Spring meet.  There is enough speed / forwardly placed in this one to keep the pace swift.  It should be a worthy cap to a splendid meet.

#8 Ioya Bigtime (Sanchez / Block) should be able to set a smooth pace and wire this field.  He holds the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two robust workouts.  This guy also shares the highest speed number at the distance.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#5 Reflecting (Albarado / McGaughey) will challenge with the third highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and two superb peeking workouts.  He has the tactical speed to stay close to the pace and unleash in the stretch.
$1 SHOW.

#6 Dark Cove (Rosario / Maker) is primed to contend in this one with the second highest (tie) last out speed number, a four race progression, and three hearty workouts.  He is another that can be expected to press the pace until the finish.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interest

#11 Al Khali (Gomez / Mott) should be in the mix with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and two athletic workouts.  He holds the second highest speed number at the distance.  This guy figures to be mid-pack ready to close well.

#3 Side Road (Stevens / McLaughlin) could surprise with the fourth highest last out speed number, a five race progression, and one hardy workout.  He is one capable of tracking the pace and moving through the stretch.

10 CENT Superfecta

#8 Ioya Bigtime / #5 Reflecting / #6 Dark Cove / #11 Al Khali, #3 Side Road.
