Good Afternoon + Welcome To:
Super Saturday At Keeneland!
Presented By: Meow Mix
We've had a few scratches leaving us with an Outstanding Field of 10 today
Now Let's Meet The Field:
Leading them onto the track
This FILLY Is a First-Time-Starter
and without A Racing History its hard
to know exactly what to expect
Her Workouts have been excellent
showing great speed and determination
Stamina at this Distance is the Big-Question today
She goes off at: 20 / 1
In PP #2
A FILLY whose last race showed that she is a Major Threat on any day!
She Stalked the Front Runners and caught them at the wire to nail the win
She is the Favorite today: 5 / 2
In PP #3
A STALLION whose connections are scratching their heads in confusion over his Inconsistency lately
He Won his Last Race very Impressively yet his effort before that one was a very dismal affair
He bounces like a rubber ball and
presents a huge question on any race day never knowing if he will be a Dynamo
or a Dud that day?
He leaves at: 8 / 1
In Gate #4
A consistent steady FILLY who never gives up trying no matter how far behind she may be at any point!
She is often lighting up the Tote Board
or just out of the money losing in a tight photo finish
She is Game All The Way In Every Race
And will be at: 4 / 1 today
In PP #5
A newcomer to this Series, this STALLION is a Force to be Reckoned with in any race!
His last race was a Dynamic effort losing the 2nd place in a tight photo finish
He leaves at: 7 / 2
In Gate #6
A FILLY Who showed her Fighting-Spirit in her last race trying to hold off the late charge of EL-PRADO right at the wire ~ Losing the Photo Finish for the Win by a Short Nose!
She Can Bolt out of the Gate for the Early lead OR Close like a Train like Zenyatta!
Her connections NEVER Know Which Filly will show up on any race day! She Leaves At: 3 / 1
In PP #7
A STALLION who has had so many changes over such a short period of time nobody ever knows what to expect?
Blinkers ON, Blinkers OFF
Sprint to Marathon
Lasix, Vitamins, Different Hay + Grain
He has shown improvement in his last 2 starts and seems to be On-His-Toes today acting very fresh and feisty in the Post Parade!
We look for a better effort today!
He goes off at: 5 / 1
In Gate #8
A Very Classy FILLY as her name implies
She has her ups and downs though and can bring her A-Game one week only to follow that with a questionable effort in her next race
Overall her Past Performance record shows a very Determined and Willing Filly who rarely runs a poor race
She Is At: 6 / 1
In PP #9
A Fractious FILLY who often displays her 'Shenanigans' as she Dances Thru the Post Parade and often tosses her Jockey in the gate!
Her Energy is often wasted BEFORE the Race even begins and she is a super question-mark to her Connections as they see her Win a race and then finish last in her next start
She leaves at 10 / 1
In Gate #10
An Older STALLION who has shown his age this year after a Brilliant Season in 2009
He managed to break a track record this year but more often seems to be struggling in many of his races
We sometimes see the Ole-WarHorse of last year emerge suddenly in a race only to be followed by a disappointing effort in his next start
His connections have had some serious conversations with the VET about making some 'Changes' but knowing his Value as a Stallion have not followed thru YET
He goes off at: 15/1
