This is the last audition for the Derby. In this race finishing in the money will decide if a few of these horses qualify in earnings to be entered in the Derby. Expect a capacity field for that race.
The Lexington is a 1 1/16 mile race on an all weather track at Keeneland (9th Race). It's a Grade 2 with a purse of $325K.
The pace will be slightly fast with co-front runners, Samba Rooster and St. Joe. In the first 12 races at this distance this meet, pace Pressers have won 5 times (73% more than average). The best of those and also the fastest of the bunch is # 1 Attoned (3/1). His rail post position won't hurt either. Two late runners, # 5 Raceway Rhapsody (9/2) and # 8 Tomcito (6/1) will be flying down the stretch and should be close at the wire.
I'll pick 'em in that order:
# 5 Racecar Rhapsody
# 8 Tomcito
Good luck to all players!
Posted 4/6: IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit: 555, 347 (str8).
