Keeneland Race 5 6 ½ furlongs Allowance 1X (3:09 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Appreciating (4/1)
Most Likely Winner: #1 Miss Arrangement (3/1)
Other Contenders: #5 Hot Squeeze (7/2), #7 Irish Score (7/2)
Analysis: Miss Arrangement comes from the beach after facing tough company and returns to the site of her debut maiden victory. No doubt the polytrack will be good for her. Hot Squeeze ran well on the turf at the Spa and Laurel and control the pace. Irish Score is in the good hands of Graham Motion and should get a stalking trip from the outside after posting useful, well-spaced works. Appreciating has plenty of graded stakes experience and usually bet well. Leparoux rides for Canada’s top trainer.
Keeneland Race 8 7 furlongs Optional Claiming $62,500 (4:42 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Elusive Fate (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Street Girl (2/1)
Other Contenders: #1 Chelsea Road (7/2) #3 Bella Castani (9/5)
Analysis: Street Girl wins the class award in this field and has trained smartly every seven days…looks well intended. Chelsea Road ran well in New Orleans and belongs to the dynamic duo of Mike Maker and the Ramsey family. Bella Castani goes for trainer Clement who has scored several times in recent years with runners switching from route to a sprint and switching from turf to the main track. Elusive Fate is in the hands of Rusty Arnold and runs second time off the shelf after a break. Her best figure came in graded stakes company last year in Lexington.
