The Hawthorne Derby is a Grade 3 race that will be run 1 1/8 miles on the turf. This could be a money maker.
# 10 Summer Doldrums (9/2)
# 2 Love Dubai (12/1)
# 11 Wheels Up At Noon (6/1)
The top two have a significant advantage over the rest of the field.
Here's how I'm betting it:
# 10 to Win
# 2 to Win and Place
Exactas: 10-2, 2-10
If I was a Trifecta player: 10-2, 2-10 / 11, 4, 9
Keeneland's Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes is also 1 1/8 on the turf. Judging by the name of the race it makes sense we'd have a coulple entrants from "over the pond". Well we do and the two of them rank 1 - 2. The American favorite, Dreaming of Anna (3/1) will be bet heavily but I don't think she's a match for the top two. The only concern is the condition of the turf. The Europeans like a soft grass surface. I don't know how much rain Keeneland has gotten lately, but if it has been dry for awhile bet these with caution.
# 6 Coquerelle (7/2)
# 8 Costume (6/1)
# 9 Sharp Susan (8/1)
In this race I would only bet # 6 to Win.
Posted 4/6: IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit: 555, 347 (str8).
