There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Friday, including Keeneland race track. We have been in fine form with our picks for a long time now as we are up +176.65 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.

2:04 pm Keeneland (Race 3) – Bandita 6/5 (2-star play)

A $350,000 purchase as a yearling back in 2021, the daughter of Gun Runner failed to appear at 2 making her racecourse debut when delivering an impressive eight-and-three-quarter-length victory in a 7-furlong maiden special weight at Gulfstream Park at the end of January. The filly has shown good form in the mornings of late including when deliver a 1:03.22 5-furlong workout on September 29 and is expected to maintain her unbeaten record.

2:36 pm Keeneland (Race 4) – Done Enough 5/2 (2-star play)

The juvenile has shown plenty of ability in her 3 starts to date including when fading late on when fourth in a mile maiden special weight on turf at Monmouth Park just over 2 months ago. The daughter of Flameaway got off the mark at the third attempt when making all the running in a six furlong contest on a sloppy main track at the same venue last month. Looks capable of completing a double in this contest. 

3:40 pm Keeneland (Race 6) – Tammy Lynn 2/1 (2-star play)

The daughter of Distorted Humor performed well when making her debut in a competitive maiden special weight at Saratoga at the start of last month. Tammy Lynn was beaten one-and-a-quarter lengths into second over five furlongs on a firm turf course on that occasion. The extra distance the filly tackles here should prove no issue and she is taken to build on a promising 48.80 4-furlong work at Churchill Downs with a victory here. 

4:44 pm Keeneland (Race 8) – Time To Dazzle 5/2 (2-star play)

Fetched $310,000 when going through the ring at Keeneland as a yearling and the filly broke her maiden at the first attempt when racing at Woodbine last month. Time To Dazzle tracked the early pace prior to leading and drawing 3 lengths clear in the stretch on a good turf course in that contest. Mark Casse’s filly is expected to have improved for that experience and she can follow up with Luis Saez in the saddle. 

5:16 pm Keeneland (Race 9) – Brightwork 9/5 (2-star play)

Trained by John Alexander Ortiz, the 2-year-old is unbeaten in four starts to date registering Graded stakes triumphs in her 2 most recent outings. The second of those saw her deliver a first top level success in taking out the Grade 1 Spinaway Stakes over seven furlongs by half-a-length at Saratoga at the start of last month. Brightwork usually races close to or on the speed, while the extra distance here is unlikely to inconvenience.
