Key Horse Races & Expert Handicapper Bets – April 17, 2021

Race 8 at Keeneland - Post Time 4:57 PM Eastern Final Jeopardy (8 to 1 starting odds) and Empty Tomb (5 to 1 starting odds) are the keys to profit here, particularly with morning line favorite South Bend absolutely false (very vulnerable) at 5 to 2. South Bend returns from six months off, running two turns (1 1/16 miles) with no prep, in an allowance race. Although he has run in all stakes races going back to the fall of 2019, the class drop is a big sign this is just a prep for [...]

Key Horse Races & Expert Handicapper Bets – April 3, 2021

Commonwealth Stakes - Race 7 at Keeneland - Post Time 4:24 PM Eastern Hidden Scroll is a standout in my opinion, in spite of opening as the second choice on the morning line at 5 to 2.

However, if you started a pick 3 in race 6 I would try to use ALL in this leg as there were only two horses to use in race seven and [...]

Key Horse Races & Free Expert Picks For July 11, 2020Appalachian Stakes - Race 4 at Keeneland - Post Time 2:45 PM EasternMariafoot imported from France just recently (June) after running there in February and not only is she fit, with six workouts since June 1, she won her last race. That was a stakes race in a field of 10 on an all-weather surface. It was also on a counter-clockwise (left-handed) course just like in this country and it was at this mile trip. In the race she was close up early and surged [...]
