2 Skippy Due J. Leparoux 118 6-1

3 Sweet Grass Creek V. Lebron 123 12-1

4 Golden Glen C. Borel 118 6-1

7 Tiger Woodman G. Gomez 118 6-1

8 Bank President E. Prado 118 2-1

9 Cointreau R. Bejarano 118 4-1

Cointreau comes off a couple of runner-up efforts at Gulfstream and won his only start over the Keeneland Polytrack last year. He looks like a good bet to handle this bunch with Rafael Bejarano aboard. Skippy Due has finished first or second in nine of his last eleven races. He is the one to beat. Tiz Stormin is good right now and will be dangerous if he handles the new surface.

2$35,000, claiming ($50,000), 3-year-olds, 7 furlongs, post time 1:49

1 Golden K M. Mena 118 15-1

2 Tillman's Legend L. Melancon 118 5-1

3 Answer the Bell J. Leparoux 120 6-1

4 George Ray C. Borel 118 8-1

5 King Bordeaux R. Bejarano 120 5-1

6 Mr. Frankie C A. Quinonez 113 20-1

7 Cajun Mon W. Martinez 118 9-2

8 Hale and Hearty J. Theriot 118 20-1

9 Swifty G. Gomez 118 15-1

10 Trick N Skip J. Graham 118 15-1

11 Fandabidoo E. Prado 118 4-1

12 Glackity Glack C. Lanerie 118 12-1

Fandabidoo just missed in his first race back after a five month layoff. He should move forward off that one and rates the slight edge in a well-matched claimer. King Bordeaux drops in for a tag for the first time and should be tough at this level. Cajun Mon has a chance.

3$54,000, allowance, 3-year-olds, 11/16 miles, post time 2:23

1 a-Sahara Heat E. Prado 123 6-5

2 Crafty Mark C. Borel 118 12-1

3 Galloping Home V. Lebron 118 3-1

4 Deputy Alydar J. Graham 118 12-1

1A a-No Reply F. Jara 123 6-5

5 Highest Degree L. Melancon 115 2-1

6 Gallant Again M. Mena 115 15-1

a-coupled

No Reply comes off a solid performance in Ocala and drops in against non-winners of two. He looks best and entrymate Sahara Heat is also capable of a good performance. Highest Degree was overmatched in the Lanes' End but broke his maiden over this strip and has to be considered.

4$66,000, allowance, 4-year-olds and up, 1 mile (turf), post time 2:57

1 Jader E. Prado 118 10-1

2 Royal Assault F. Jara 118 20-1

3 Bear Character A. Quinonez 113 50-1

4 Rio Mistico C. Velasquez 118 8-1

5 Pulpit Talk R. Bejarano 118 8-1

6 Starspangled Gator C. Borel 118 4-1

7 Perfect Drift G. Gomez 118 3-1

8 Romney Marsh P. Teator 118 20-1

9 Raedonald S. Bridgmohan 115 30-1

10 Stream Cat J. Leparoux 118 7-2

11 Third Half M. Guidry 118 5-1

Stream Cat has won three of five on the grass including a Grade III at Churchill. He has been idle since July but Patrick Biancone is solid with returning runners and he rates the edge. Perfect Drift has been an amazing runner for Murray Johnson. He makes his customary seasonal debut on the Keeneland turf where he has won two of his four starts. His recent work says he is ready, and he is always the one to beat at this level. Starspangled Gator has the speed to be in front, and the early runners on the grass have been performing well so far this meet.

5$50,000, maiden special weight, 3-year-old fillies, about 7 furlongs, post time 3:15

1 Cowgirl Coffee C. Lanerie 120 12-1

2 Lady Lapuma A. Quinonez 115 10-1

3 Capetown Evening S. Bridgmohan 120 20-1

4 Mini Sermon G. Gomez 120 3-1

5 Pure Star L. Melancon 120 10-1

6 Marquee Delivery J. Graham 120 5-1

7 Street 'Em Sheila E. Prado 120 12-1

8 Etched in Gold J. Castellano 120 8-1

9 In a Haze C. Velasquez 120 12-1

10 Granny Franny R. Bejarano 120 4-1

11 Scarlett's Place J. Leparoux 120 10-1

12 Sexy Librarian C. Nakatani 120 20-1

Mini Sermon just missed last out at Gulfstream and appears to be in a good spot to get his maiden win for Todd Pletcher and John Velazquez. Granny Franny has been off since a narrow loss in her debut at Saratoga. She will be running at the end and is the one to beat. Marquee Delivery ran well here last meet and has to be respected.

6$200,000, Jenny Wiley Stakes (Grade II), fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up, 11/16 miles (turf), post time 4:05

1 Fantastic Shirl E. Prado 117 15-1

2 Wait a While G. Gomez 123 4-5

3 Precious Kitten R. Bejarano 123 6-1

4 My Typhoon E. Castro 119 2-1

5 Mauralakana J. Leparoux 117 5-1

6 Essential Edge J. Castellano 119 20-1

Wait a While has been spectacular since moving to the turf. She has won five of six and her only loss was in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf. She figures to win at a short price in the Jenny Wiley. My Typhoon was right behind the top pick in the Breeders' Cup. She is back at her favorite distance but still looks second best. Precious Kitten is a contender.

7$62,000, allowance optional claiming ($80,000), 4-year-olds and up, 7 furlongs, post time 4:39

1 Laity C. Lanerie 118 10-1

2 Reverential J. Graham 118 6-1

3 Carnera J. Leparoux 118 7-2

4 Court Folly C. Borel 118 3-1

5 Taint So J. Castellano 118 8-1

6 Clootie's Croft C. Velasquez 118 15-1

7 Esprit Du Roi W. Martinez 118 10-1

8 Nar C. Nakatani 118 4-1

9 Dr. Schwartz J. Theriot 123 8-1

Court Folly had a solid 3-year-old campaign and probably didn't care for the turf in his last race in Tampa. Anything close to his best would make him a winner in this one. Reverential woke up last out and ran a big race at Oaklawn. He should be in good position right off the early leaders and looks dangerous. Carnera is a definite threat.

8$400,000, Commonwealth Breeders' Cup Stakes (Grade II), 3-year-olds and up, 7 furlongs, post time 5:13

1 Buddy Got Even C. Velasquez 118 15-1

2 River City Rebel J. Leparoux 118 15-1

3 Straight Line M. Mena 118 10-1

4 Steel Light G. Gomez 118 6-1

5 Ramsgate D. Flores 118 6-1

6 Ryan's for Real D. Panell 118 12-1

7 Midnight Lute E. Prado 120 3-1

8 Silent Name C. Nakatani 118 4-1

9 Deep Canyon C. Borel 118 20-1

10 Gin and Sin R. Bejarano 118 20-1

11 Lewis Michael R. Douglas 118 10-1

12 High Finance J. Castellano 118 8-1

Midnight Lute is a consistent runner from the Bob Baffert barn. He failed as the favorite in the Strub but is probably better suited to this distance. His only race on the Polytrack was an impressive win in the Perryville, and he looks like a good bet to take the Commonwealth Breeders' Cup under Edgar Prado. Silent Name exits six straight grade one races on the grass. He has trained well over the Polytrack at Hollywood Park, and his class makes him the one to beat. Gin and Sin could add value to the gimmicks.

9$750,000, Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (Grade I), 3-year-old, 11/8 miles, post time 5:46

1 Zanjero G. Gomez 123 8-1

2 Dominican R. Bejarano 123 10-1

3 Love Dubai M. Mena 123 30-1

4 Street Sense C. Borel 123 4-5

5 Time Squared J. Leparoux 123 30-1

6 Teuflesberg E. Prado 123 10-1

7 Great Hunter C. Nakatani 123 9-5

Street Sense will be a short-priced favorite in the Toyota Blue Grass, and he looks like a good bet to get the win. He has trained exceptionally well since his win in the Tampa Bay Derby, and Carl Nafzger will have him ready. Great Hunter beat the top pick in the Breeders' Futurity and also was sharp in his 3-year-old debut win. He looks like the main competition. Zanjero will be running at the end.

10$58,000, allowance, fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up, 11/8 miles (turf), post time 6:19

1 Rosinka E. Castro 118 6-1

2 Black Willow J. Theriot 118 12-1

3 Birdie Sets Sail J. Leparoux 118 20-1

4 Moya G. Gomez 118 5-1

5 Bea Plus R. Bejarano 118 7-2

6 Scarlet Butterfly J. Graham 118 8-1

7 Palmilla C. Velasquez 118 10-1

8 Cologne E. Prado 118 4-1

9 Venitienne R. Douglas 118 30-1

10 Maxine's Hymn J. Castellano 118 5-1

11 Mama I'm Home C. Borel 118 12-1

Bea Plus rates the slight edge in what looks like a wide open allowance race on the turf. Rosinka beat the top pick at Gulfstream and is a definite threat. Scarlet Butterfly has the speed to be a contender.
