Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Keeneland   Race 6   7 furlongs   Claiming $30,000 2L (3:40 ET)

Best Value Play: #3 Hawaakom (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #6 Stroll to Victory (5/2)

Other Contenders: #1 Indian Red (7/2), #9 Handsome Dennis (3/1)

 Analysis: Stroll to Victory switches from turf to dirt, from a route to a sprint, and that is a way Ken McPeek wins a ton of races, and the colt drops in class. Indian Red seems to be in the mix at all times and should be ready for a good effort after a freshening. Handsome Dennis is guided by the hot hand of Rosie Napravnik and turns back to a sprint. Hawaakom, drops in class, has some hot works and returns after a long rest while stationed in Chicago…and appears on the last day of the meet.


 Keeneland   Race 7   7 furlongs Allowance $ 65,000 (4:11 ET)

Best Value Play: #6 Bourbonize (8/1)

Most Likely Winner: #5 Cool Cowboy (4/1)

Other Contenders: #3 Hollywood Talent (9/2) #8 I Got It All (7/2)

 Analysis: Cool Cowboy will definitely be on the engine against a good field of open allowance foes. His speed is his weapon and it’s either all or nothing. Hollywood Talent was a classy juvenile and looks to be in top form even though his 2014 resume is limited. I Got It All is based in the Windy City and shows up on the last day of the meet for good trainer, who has yet to stat a horse at the meet. Hmmm. Bourbonize showed a great deal of promise for his talented trainer and drops from a tough optional race against older. A return to old form is very possible.
