KEENELAND PICKS -- OCT 8TH

 

Yes, the horses have returned to that Lexington track and the first fall Saturday up there is an action-packed, big-time quality field...with five stakes races and three of the Grade I.  It's also "track and then football" for a lot of the fans at Keeneland, who wll tailgate at the track before heading over to see UK face South Carolina. We'll see how that skews the later betting. I've got a friend headed up there, who will be wearing his red and black Louisville gear. I hope he survives. 

Anyway, I'm looking at Races 6-10. Play 'em anyway you like. So many good jockeys and trainers and, yes, the New York contingent is there in force. \
