Race 1
#3 Lincoln Law has a lot going on for him in this race. First time blinkers, hot jock Stewart Elliot in the irons, big Tomlinson number for the distance, a decent effort over synthetic last time out and decent odds. #2 Northeast Bound posted a good Beyer number last out finishing a strong 3rd with Maiden $40K. He has a real shot with these. #5 Squidalem ran o.k. last out at this level and looks competitive here.

Race 2
#4 L.A. Freeway is making his first start off the claim. Solid effort last out at Gulfstream and expect him to be tough here. #3 Choctaw Won has a really sharp work posted out of the gates here at Keeneland. Look for him to show some early foot. #3 Perdido Brew looked like the real deal 2 starts back but spit the bit last time. Depends on which game he brings, would keep him in exotics.

Race 3
#1 Never On Time has a race over the track this meet and just gave it up in the lane to finish 4th. Returns with new owner and trainer and Albarado in the irons. #2 Slick Pardoned Me won his last out posting an impressive 80 Beyer figure. Tough old horse that will likely make his presence known here. #5 Gallant Eagle seldom misses a check and he is fresh for this one.
$1 Trifecta Box
#1 Never On Time, #2 Slick Pardoned Me, #5 Gallant Eagle

Race 4
#5 Lemon and Honey turned in a game effort here last fall with similar. She is making her 2nd start off a freshening and she should be sharp. #10 Frazier’s Pegasus has a race over the course this meet and is dropping for half. Leparoux stays on board and she should appreciate this spot. #6 Holiday Drama has enough form to suggest she can be a player with these.
