KEENELAND RACE COURSE Race #8 (THE JENY WILEY STAKES (G1))
Saturday 07/11 05:00 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #4 (RUSHING FALL) (2-1) - One of a pair from Chad Brown, and they race as separate betting interests. She's spent her entire career on the grass, has gone 12-9-2-0 with earnings of over $2M, and she won this race 15 months ago. Speed/stalker ships from Belmont off a win in a G3 there on June 3, her first start since Oct. 5. I give her a slight edge in a talented field.
2nd pick: #8 (Toinette) (5-1) - This 5yo mare has won eight of 11 on the grass, and this daughter of 'Scat Daddy' draws a great post for her stalking style. She won a G3 at Santa Anita June 20 in her first race since Dec. 1 and is a win candidate today.
3rd pick: #6 (Jolie Olimpica) (7-2) - Lightly raced Brazilian import has plenty of talent and is stretching back out following a win in a turf sprint stakes at Santa Anita May 25. She's won five of six overall, has a flexible style, and is in the win mix.
4th pick: #7 (Altea) (8-1) - The second of the pair from Chad Brown, this French import lacks early speed, and her best figures are below the top three selections. A fast and/or early pace may get her a minor award with a late rush.
