KEENELAND RACE COURSE Race #1

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #4 (WARTIME HERO) (4-1) - $300,000 son of 'Empire Maker' has raced both wide and evenly in his first pair facing tougher. Colt drops into a claimer for the first time and is bred to like this two-turn trip. He gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #6 (Beaver Hat) (9-2) - He moves back to the dirt and drops back down after missing by 4.5 lengths when facing tougher going a mile on the Churchill grass June 20. Competitive in four straight on the dirt prior to that, this 3yo has ample two-turn experience and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Cernan) (5-1) - This $500,000 son of 'Malibu Moon' raced evenly last out when finishing three lengths in back of 'Beaver Hat' June 5 at Churchill Downs. It was his first off a pair of layoffs, and he's been competitive in two of three at this distance in the past. It's noted that Joel Rosario is aboard.
4th pick: #9 (Majority Rules) (3-1) - Away from action since Aug. 11, he has a new trainer, Dave Fawkes, and he drops him into a claimer for the first time. Competitive in two of three last year on the NYRA circuit, he can factor if ready.
