Horse Racing picks for Keeneland race track on Sunday, October 15: Don't miss You're Avoiding Me

Jockey Leslie Mawing atop Highwaytwentyseven (5) wins the second race of the day as the Tampa Bay Downs

There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Sunday, including Keeneland race track. We have been in fine form with our picks for a long time now, as we are up +169.35 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.

1:00 pm Keeneland (Race 1) – Derrick 9/5 (2-star play)

This son of Arrogate showed plenty of ability when 3rd in a mile maiden special weight at Indiana Downs in his debut in August. The 3-year-old was beaten 1.75 lengths on that occasion, however he faded when racing over a 16th further in a $75,000 maiden claimer at Churchill Downs subsequently.

A drop in grade and distance are both in his favor today and he looks up to breaking his maiden for the Brad Cox barn on his third career start.  

2:04 pm Keeneland (Race 3) – You’re Avoiding Me 8/5 (2-star play)

This 4-year-old had finished on the board in 4 straight starts on both the main track and turf prior to delivering a neck success at Colonial Downs last month, coming from off the pace to take out a $30,000 claiming contest over 5.5 furlongs on turf.

The daughter of Outwork heads here after a 49.40 4-furlong work at Churchill Downs at the start of this month and is selected to register her second career win. 

4:12 pm Keeneland (Race 7) – Caravel 9/5 (2-star play)

The winner of this race 12 months ago, this mare has made 5 appearances since, winning 4 of them including 2 at Grade 1 level.

The daughter of Mizzen Mast suffered a shock defeat when bumped at the start prior to finishing 3 lengths 4th in the Grade 3 Troy Stakes on a soft turf course at Saratoga in early August. She represents a top trainer and with regular pilot Tyler Gaffalione up she looks up to returning to winning ways.
