The Green Sheet broke out of the gate running on opening day at Keeneland, as I was head shy of giving out the first five winers on the card! Additionally, I nailed down a $229 superfecta in the third race and a $95 dollar trifecta in the fifth. On the day, the Sheet had four winners from 10 races and a pair of thirds, a 40 percent strike rate, 60 percent in the money.

Saturday’s bonanza Keeneland program offers a $300,000 guaranteed All-Stakes Pick 5 highlighted by the 93rd running of the $1,000,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G2)–the deepest Kentucky Derby (G1) prep race to date on paper– featuring top class three-year-old colts McCraken, Tapwrit, J Boys Echo, and Practical Joke.

Additionally, Keeneland will offer a $400,000 guaranteed all stakes Pick 4 which starts with the seventh race on the card and incorporates the $200,000 Shakertown Stakes (G2), the $300,000 Madison Stakes (G1), the $500,000 Central Bank Ashland Stakes (G1), and the Blue Grass Stakes (G2) in the sequence. Furthermore, there is a Pick 6 carryover of $14,077 on Saturday’s program.
