Horse Racing picks for Keeneland race track on Friday, October 29: Golden chance for Majestic D'Oro


There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Friday, including at Keeneland race track. Here are 3 runners that we think can hit the line first today. Yesterday’s 4 horse racing picks included 2 winners at 5/2 and 8/5, plus a 4/1 runner-up.

It’s time to dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

4:44pm Keeneland (Race 8) – Majestic D’Oro 6/1

Brendan Walsh’s Majestic D’Oro was very impressive when winning a Maiden Special Weight by five and three quarter lengths on debut at Indiana Grand in August and can win the $150,000 Myrtlewood Stakes at Keeneland (Race 8).

After that impressive victory, this daughter of Speightster, who himself won at this course, went on to finish 5th behind the Breeders’ Cup-bound Hidden Connection in the Grade 3 Pocahontas Stakes at Churchill Downs and should find this assignment much easier on her third start.

5:16pm Keeneland (Race 9) – Queenship 8/1

The penultimate race at Keeneland is the $150,000 Grade 3 Valley View Stakes, which is ultra-competitive but this one can go to the Irish challenger Queenship for Joseph O’Brien and his team.

This filly has a lovely profile as she finished third on her debut at Dundalk last November before reeling off 3 straight wins while moving through the grades and she can be delivered late for a trainer who has had success in the U.S. already in this campaign.

5:48pm Keeneland (Race 10) – Brother Brad 7/2

A very winnable Maiden Claiming contest is the 10th and final race at Keeneland and this one should go to the likely favourite Brother Brad, who returned after nearly 2 years off the track to finish 4th in this grade at Gulfstream Park last month and can improve past his rivals today.

Prior to that he finished second in a $75,000 Maiden Special Weight at Belmont Park, which is the best form on offer in this race, so if he can run close to that then he should win.
