Top pick: #3 (SHARILYN JEAN) - Filly middle-moved and tired last out at Keeneland racing for $30K on a surface I don't think she cared for. Daughter of "Discreet Cat" had faced special weights at the Fair Grounds in her first three appearances and trainer Dallas Keen will drop her down and move her back to the dirt. Albarado stays put and this 3-year-old is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #8 (Guile) - She has some speed and draws a nice outside post at this "flat" mile to either try for the front or stalk from. Blinkers go on and this daughter by "Posse" is a threat.
3rd pick: #5 (Ali's Knockout) - Four-year-old was competitive in 4-of-5 starts at Oaklawn Park this past winter/spring and she brings some closing kick to a contest with a lot of fron-end types. She has a fine local work on April 20th and home-bred is a stretch factor.
4th pick: #4 (Jack's Flame) - Stretch-out sprinter drops in price and will switch from the Keeneland "poly" to real dirt. Four-year-old by "Pulpit" has a fine half-mile local work April 25th and she'll take them as far as she can.
