    Thursday, April 23

    Race 1:  (4) Politicallycorrect just won for a $32k tag and now he runs for $25k, no doubt because owner Ken Ramsey is all-out to win another owner's title and is well on his way to keeping his streak in tact.  Exacta boxes 4-1, 4-2

    Race 2:  (9) Cover Up showed big improvement in his second turf race and now is working well for this engagement.  Exacta boxes 9-8, 9-1, 9-3

    Race 3:  (6) Innocuous drops out of tougher races and that may set him up for a winning race here.  Exacta boxes 6-5, 6-3

    Race 4:  (5) Fine Instincts has faced tougher and Pletcher has a good record with horses making their turf debuts.  Exacta boxes 5-10, 5-3, 5-2, 5-12

    Race 5:  (3) Finnegan shows sharp works at Keeneland for trainer Wesley Ward.  Exacta boxes 3-5, 3-2

    Race 6:  (7) Ft. Davis comes out of a tough race and has run well on this turf course.  Exacta boxes 7-9, 7-6, 7-5

    Race 7:  (3) Kissed by a Rose has good speed and they may not catch this one on the class drop.  Exacta boxes 3-8, 3-5, 3-6

    Race 8:  (2) Heyaarat ran against a good field last time, as the runnerup came back to win, and now he makes his second start off a layoff for a trainer in contention for the trainer's title.  Exacta boxes 2-6, 2-3, 2-1, 2-12

    Race 9:  (6) Iron in the Fire gets the edge over the other Ward-trained runner because of showing workouts at Keeneland.  Exacta boxes 6-4, 6-9

    Late Pick 4:  7,6,9 with 3,5,6,8 with 2,1,3,6,9 with 6,4
