Superfecta Sunday at Keeneland

Off to Superfecta Sunday as we take in a Turf battle at wonderful Keeneland.

Keeneland Race 8 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year-old~Fillies~Allowance}

Twelve fillies will take to the grass in this highly competitive event. There is a nice mix of speed and forwardly placed types to insure an honest pace. Speed figs are very close. Half the field has gone this distance before. It should be a spectacular Turf race. Our task is to harness together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#12 Hold Harmless (Leparoux / McGaughey) could have a slight edge with the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three hearty workouts. This gal should be tracking the pace ready to cruise into the stretch. She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$1 SHOW.

#4 Heavenly View (J. Velazquez / Pletcher) will challenge with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three stout workouts. She should take up a forwardly placed position seeking to roll into the stretch. This gal will be stretching out for this race.

#10 Believe in Bernie (Bridgmohan / Cox) should contend coming off an extended layoff. She won at first asking at this distance. Her speed should carry her as she holds the third highest (tie) speed number at the distance.  Add to that three superb peaking workouts and she should acquit herself well.

#5 Gliding By (Castellano / Mott) should also contend with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and three robust peaking workouts. This gal will close gracefully into a speedy pace. She is one of three that have raced over the Keeneland course.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#12 Hold Harmless  +  #4 Heavenly View  +  #10 Believe in Bernie  +  #5 Gliding By.
