Keeneland: Day 9, April 20, 2017

Keeneland’s nine-race Thursday program is highlighted by the seventh on the card, an ultra-competitive “three other than” allowance event for fillies and mares four-years-old and up going a flat mile on the turf.

Louis Lazzinnaro’s stakes-placed Uncle Mo filly Conquest Babayaga looks like the one to beat in the 11-horse field for trainer Chad Brown. Lira, a stakes-winning Giant’s Causeway filly for Christophe Clement, and three-time stakes winner Queen Caroline, are other entrants that are in with a chance in this deep turf affair.

The Green Sheet gave out a pair of winners on the eight-race Wednesday, April 19 program at Keeneland and has a 25 percent strike rate at the meet to date. The Sheet‘s top selections are finishing in the money 53 percent of the time.

Be sure to check the site often for updates, as I will be giving away FREE selections and analysis for every race of the 2017 Keeneland Spring Meeting.
