    Sunday, October 18

    Race 1

    (1) So Many Dreams has a good race over the track and should be better for the experience, plus this one's overall recent form is solid.  Exacta boxes 1-2, 1-3, 1-5

    Race 2

    (4) Lucy's Revenge has been steadily improving since moving to the grass and the last was her best.  Exacta boxes 4-1, 4-6

    Race 3

    (8) Bad Student won here on opening weekend with his best Beyer--no reason he can't repeat that.  Exacta boxes 8-4, 8-2

    Race 4

    (8) Grand Contender has 10 wins, is in top form and shows two very good works since that runnerup finish last time out.  Exacta boxes 8-6, 8-5, 8-7

    Race 5

    (4) First Growth is a son of Candy Ride and those offspring do well on this track.  Also, this one ran well at a mile and is bred to relish the added distance.  Exacta boxes 4-7, 4-6, 4-8

    Race 6

    (3) Queen Pauline has two fast works over the Keeneland strip and the Asmussen two-year olds have been running well.  Exacta boxes 3-1/1a, 3-9, 3-4

    Race 7

    (5) Tesalina is taking a huge class drop from the likes of Taris in that last race and the Ward barn wins at a 28 percent clip with newcomers to the barn.   Exacta boxes 5-3, 5-6, 5-7

    Race 8

    (9) Miss Chatelaine is a three-year old in top form and is bred to love the 12 furlong distance and she might have enough to upset favored Kitten's Point.  Exacta boxes 9-1, 9-6, 9-4

    Race 9

    (10) Oltre' Oro was claimed by the Ramseys out of a big win at Saratoga and they were no doubt thinking of this meet for his next start.  Exacta boxes 10-11, 10-4, 10-7

    Late Pick 4:   3 with 5,3,6 with 9,1 with ALL
