Superfecta Sunday at Keeneland

We view a nice little poly sprint on this Superfecta Sunday.

Keeneland Race 6 {7 furlongs~4 year old Up~Allowance}
A talented field of eleven will go to the poly in this allowance feature.  Not much speed in this one, though there are a few that like to run forwardly placed.  He who controls the pace could win the race.

#7 Let's Go Ben (Leparoux / LoPresti) is coming off a brief layoff with a couple of decent last out speed figures and three superb peaking workouts.  This guy holds the second highest speed number at the distance as well as the highest speed number over the poly at Keeneland.    He has the tactical speed that could control this one and earn him another victory.

#2 Palio Prince (Torres / Puhl) looks impressive with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one bullet workout.  He has run very well at this distance and should be forwardly placed.

#1 Googleado [ARG] (Graham / Stidham) appears well prepped for his second North American start with the third highest last out speed number (4-way tie), a two race progression, and two stellar peaking workouts.  Based on his strong set of works over the surface, he may take well to it and close swiftly into the pace.  He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection today.
$2 SHOW.

#8 Making Amends (Albarado / Casse) is coming off a lengthly layoff , but has landed in the money on a previous long layoff.  Prior to the lay off he shares the third highest last out speed number at a stakes route, was working a two race progression, and has put in three dynamite workouts.  This guy could track his way into the winners circle.
