 Keeneland    Race 2   6 1/2 furlongs   $16,000   (1:37 ET)

Best Value Play: #1 Haunted (5/1)

Most Likely Winner: #6 Strong Resolve (7/2)

Other Contenders: #4 Viola (5/1), #9 New Believer (5/1)

Analysis: In a very contentious race Strong Resolve looks to have an edge since proving he is in top form. Viola has faced tougher and likes the artificial surfaces. New Believer turns back in distance and goes back to an artificial surface, where he has a splendid record. Haunted ran a respectable race at a much higher level at the Spring Meeting and comes back to Lexington with a new barn and a freshener. His last work signals readiness.

 Woodbine    Race 5,   6 furlongs    Claiming $10,000 2L   (2:48 ET)

Best Value Play: #6 Where’s the Bay (12/1)

Most Likely Winner: #5 Dancing With Frank (2/1)

Other Contenders: #3 Silent Tycoon (6/1) #4 My Silver Badge (4/1)

Analysis: Dancing With Frank takes a drop, runs for a powerful barn and gets the services of Pat Husbands and that is probably all that is needed. Silent Tycoon runs for a combo that has been very deadly over the last couple of years and his last work suggests he may be ready. My Silver Badge was claimed by a trainer that does well first race after visiting the claiming box and ran his last two races in a condition higher. Where’s the Bay looks to be the top pace factor and drops in class with the talented Stein in the irons.
