Good Friday at Keeneland

A beautiful Good Friday to take in a wonderful race at magnificent Keeneland.

Keeneland Race 9 {Doubledogdare~G3~1 1/16 mile~4 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}
A superlative group of eleven gals will go to the gate in this annual event.  There is enough speed to keep an active pace.  The posted Beyer Speed figures are closely comparable.  It should be a dandy of a race.

#10 Emollient (Smith / Mott) should go off as the deserved favorite with two victories over the Keeneland poly.  She holds the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number over a longer route and has put in two sound workouts.  A superb tactical running style adds to her appeal.  This gal holds the highest speed number over the poly at Keeneland.
$1 WIN / $1 SHOW.

#11 Strathnaver [GB] (Rosario / Motion) should challenge with the second highest last out speed number over a longer TURF route, a two race progression, and four excellent workouts.  She is coming off a layoff, but has done well off of similar.  This gal will be tracking the pace.
$1 SHOW.

#9 Solid Appeal (Albarado / Baker) should contend with the highest last out speed number at a longer route, a two race progression, and three hearty workouts.  She could find herself forwardly placed seeking another victory over the Keeneland course.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#7 Sisterly Love (Elliott / Casse) should be in the mix with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one stout workout.  She holds the second highest speed number at the distance.  This lady should be motoring swiftly on the front end.

#3 Pearl Turn (Napravnik / Van Meter) is an intriguing choice with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and three sharp, peaking workouts.  She should take up a tracking position and make her move going into the stretch.
