A QE Two Stakes Saturday

Stakes Saturday has arrived and we look in on Kentucky for some great Turf action.

Keeneland Race 9 {Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup~G1~1 1/8 mile~TURF~3 year-old~Fillies~Graded Stakes}

A talented field of nine will take to the Kentucky grass in this annual feature. There is plenty of speedy and forwardly placed types to keep a strong pace rolling. Speed figs are so very close insuring a highly competitive event. Only three have traveled over the Keeneland green. It should be one of the most exciting races of the day.

#9 Sentiero Italia (Rosario / McLaughlin) is the one to beat with the highest last out speed number, a six race progression, and one superb workout. She will be seeking her third win in a row. This gal holds the highest speed number at the distance coupled with a 100% win record from three starts at same. This daughter of Medaglia d'Oro, should run close to the pace and stride brilliantly into the stretch.
$1 WIN  /  $2 PLACE  /  $3 SHOW.

#8 Feathered (Castellano / Pletcher) will challenge with the third highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and three sound workouts. She could be part of a speed duo motoring on the front end. This gal will be stretching out to this distance from her last. A daughter of Indian Charlie she is an impressive 100% in the money over the Turf from four starts.
$1 PLACE  /  $2 SHOW.

#4 Her Emmynency (Geroux / Stidham) could surprise with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three endurance strengthening, peaking workouts. This gal has one of the best in the money records of the field at 83% from six starts. A daughter of Successful Appeal, she should be forwardly placed.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#7 Blond Me [IRE] (Alvarado / Balding) will be making her second North American start sharing the third highest last out speed number, working a two race progression, and putting in one strong workout. This gal appears to be in fine form as well as loves the distance and surface. A daughter of Tamayuz [GB], she should be tracking and closing well.
