On the Dirt

There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Sunday, including at Keeneland race track. We have been on fire with our picks for a long time now and we are up +284.24 units with our race selections to our recommended stakes dating back to August 5, 2021. Let’s keep it rolling!

Here are our best bets for today’s action at Keeneland race track.

1:00 pm Keeneland (Race 1) – Guana Cay 3/2 (2-star play)

Performed well in allowance optional claiming contests when completing a double in scoring by a neck over a mile at Ellis Park on her penultimate start. Could finish only 5th when beaten eleven lengths at Churchill Downs subsequently but switches to a starter event here. The daughter of Air Force Blue delivered a solid 49.20 four furlong breeze at Horseshoe Indianapolis and Cipriano Contreras’ charge is taken to register her 3rd win in 4 starts at this venue.

3:57 pm Keeneland (Race 6) – Love Reigns 4/5 (3-star play)

The Irish-bred daughter of U S Navy Flag has shown good form in her 3 starts to date following up an easy maiden special weight win here with a 3-length 4th in a big field Group 3 event at Royal Ascot in the UK in June. Returned to the winners’ enclosure when scoring by two-and-a-half-lengths in a Listed event over five-and-one-half-furlongs at Saratoga in August and looks capable of following up with Paco Lopez booked to ride.

5:45 pm Keeneland (Race 9) – Malathaat 3/5 (3-star play)

Delivered a half-length victory in the Grade 1 Personal Ensign Stakes over a mile-and-one-eighth at Saratoga in August. Had previously chased home Clairiere when one-and-a-half-lengths second in the Grade 2 Shuvee Stakes over the same course and distance the previous month. Has won both previous starts at this distance and with the trip to suit here Todd Pletcher’s mare is selected to register a 9th win in 13 career starts with regular pilot John Velazquez in the saddle.
