A Little Keeneland Turf for Furlong Friday

On this Furlong Friday we take in a grand Turf sprint at lovely Keeneland.

Keeneland Race 9 {Franklin County Stakes~5 1/2 furlongs~3 year old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}
A very nice group of fourteen ladies go to the Turf in this Friday feature. There is plenty of speed to encourage a brisk pace. The speed numbers are similar making for a highly competitive contest.

#12 Free as a Bird (Rosario / Wilkes) should have a favorable edge with the third highest (tie) last out speed number, a four race progression, and four superb workouts. This gal should be close to the pace and pounce into the stretch. She is 100% in the money at this distance from five tries.
$2 SHOW.

#13 Sweet Cassiopeia (Rocco / Connelly) should challenge with the fourth highest last out speed number, a tree race progression, and one solid workout. She should be tracking the leading pack ready to strike in the stretch. This gal holds the highest speed number over the Keeneland Turf.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#1 Sky Treasure (Bridgmohan / Casse) should contend with the highest last out speed number at a longer sprint, a three race progression, and two quality workouts.  She should be another tracking the lead pack ready to kick it home.

#2 Ageless (Leparoux / Delacour) should be in the mix with a couple of strong last out speed numbers and two hearty workouts.  She holds the second highest (three-way tie) speed fig at the distance coupled with a 100% in the money record at same. She is another tracking looking for a honest pace.
