BetPTC.com Selections / #3 – Kid Perfect / #2 – Wynn Tale / #7 – Switzerland

#3 Kid Perfect has the services of Adam Beschizza making his 2nd start off the layoff from Churchill. The Angel Montano trainee is 6 for 11 ITM on the grass and has faced tougher. He gets blinkers off and the barn wins 26% on this equipment change. He has the look of a solid stalker who can stay out of trouble and come running on the turn. #2 Wynn Tale comes from the Hugh Robertson barn winning 27% and has Marcelino Pedroza in the saddle. He scored at first asking off a 7 month layoff at Oaklawn and gets a shot at the grass. He won the $75k Thanksgiving Stakes and may step right up and win again. #7 Switzerland is a son of Speightstown for trainer Steve Asmussen winning 29%. His go to rider Ricardo Santana is aboard this speedster and can turn out the lights of left along on the lead.

BetPTC.com Selections / #6 – Beau Recall / #7 -Take These Chains / #9 – Superiority Complex

#6 Beau Recall is a daughter of Sir Prancelot for the Brad Cox barn winning at a 28% clip. She’s been away for 48 days and switches to a high percentage rider in Shaun Bridgmohan winning 21%. She exits the G2 Goldikova and has faced much better. The drop in class combined with fresh legs make her dangerous today. #7 Take These Chains is a Brad Cox trainee and should show good speed to set up her entry mate. This is her 3rd off the layoff and exits off a win at Churchill Downs. She’ll be up close mixing it up with the pace setters. #9  Superiority Complex is a daughter of Hard Spun for trainer Michael Stidham. “Jersey” Joe Bravo stays aboard and won at Fair Grounds in November. She’s 5 for 7 ITM on the turf, and should get a good stalking trip looking for two in a row.

BetPTC.com Selections / #4 – Cajun Firecracker / #5 – Hog Wild / #9 – Super Steed

#4 Cajun Firecracker is a son of Cajun Breeze for the Steve Asmussen barn winning 29%. Santana is aboard and they’ve been away from the races for 50 days. He was a beaten chalk last out and the barn comes back to win 25% on this move. He cuts back in distance and should come from off the pace today. #5 Hog Wild comes in for trainer Vickie Foley with Corey Lanerie in the irons. 2nd start off the layoff and if you toss out the G3 Iroquois he is a perfect 2 for 2. Lanerie fits him well and will come rolling late in the stretch. #9 Super Steed is a son of Super Saver for Larry Jones. Gabriel Saez is the reinsman and exits off an impressive win at Churchill Downs. Jones is winning 33% and scores 25% with his shippers. The barn has been doing well the past two weeks going 3 for 5 ITM at FG.

#11 Mae Never No is trained by Wesley Ward and making her 2nd start off the layoff. She is 2 for 2 facing the gals and ran a game 3rd in the Tremont as a beaten favorite. Ward wins 21% with his first time grass runners and been working around the dogs at Keeneland. Albin Jimenez in the saddle looking for a perfect stalking trip to make a run in the long home stretch. #10 Moonlight Romance comes from the barn of Wesley Ward and has Jose Ortiz in the irons. She comes back from Royal Ascot and a daughter of Liaison for Ken & Sarah Ramsey. Blinkers off today and she broke her maiden at Belmont last out on the turf. #2 Chattel has Kendrick Carmouche in the driver’s seat for this son of Giant Oak.

Race #7 – Ladies Turf – 1 mile on the turf – 5:26 pm EDT

BetPTC.com Selections / #7 Hallie Belle / #8 In the Lee / #10 Dubara

#7 Hallie Belle is a daughter of Medaglia d’ Oro for the Michael Stidham barn. This is her 3rd off the layoff and “Jersey” Joe Bravo comes down for the mount. She’s dropping down a notch from the G2 Yellow Ribbon Stakes and her dam Charity Belle has 4 starters / 2 winners / 1  stakes winner / 2 turf winners to her credit. #8 In the Lee comes from the stable of Shug McGaughey with Jose Ortiz in the saddle. She is 6 for 7 ITM on grass and been off for two months since Belmont. Shug wins 21% with layoff runners and Ortiz is 49% ITM on the sod. #10 Dubara has the services of Adam Beschizza for this daughter of Dubawi. Her dam Kibara has 6 starters / 6 winners / 6 turf winners to her credit. Since coming across the pond she seems to be enjoying Lasix and the grass racing. This course may be to her liking.

Race #8 – G3 Ladies Sprint – 6 1/2f on the turf – 5:57 pm EDT

BetPTC.com Selections / #6 Lull / #7 Originator / #1 Brielle’s Belle

#6 Lull is a daughter of War Front and 2 for 2 with wins over the KyD course. Christophe Clement is the conditioner and has B.J. Hernadez in the saddle. Runners that like the track usually come back and show a good effort. She comes in off a solid effort in the G2 Royal North at Woodbine. She’s in perfect shape heading back to Kentucky and was sprinting 6f last out and gets added distance this day. #7 Originator hails from the Ian Wilkes barn with Jose Ortiz in the driver’s seat. She is a daughter of Artie Schiller and is 5 for 6 ITM on the greensward. She’s a closer and Ortiz is an excellent judge of pace. I really like her chances today. #1 Brielle’s Appeal is a speedy filly by English Channel who’s going to grab the lead for trainer Al Stall. She has been away for 47 days at Saratoga and could be a handful if turned loose from the gate break.
