Buffalo Trace Franklin County Stakes - Race #9 at Keeneland - Approx. Post 5:30 PM ET

Late Spring won in the spring at Keeneland in a turf sprint with jockey Lanerie in the saddle as today. Since then she finished 2nd twice and 3rd once in stakes. We can draw a line through her most recent effort on a yielding course at Kentucky Downs and at a longer distance. If she repeats her runner-up effort one back (106 Equibase figure) or her winning effort here at Keeneland this spring (103 figure) she can win. Miss Ella enters the race off the two best efforts of her career, both with 104 Equibase figures. Rosario knows her very well and is likely to have her motoring strongly in the last 16th of a mile for a big piece if not the win. Fair Point won a stakes when last seen with a 104 figure on par with the other main contenders and in her first stakes try. She's never been worse than 2nd in three turf races and the ONLY jockey she's ever known (Ortiz) rides so expect another "A" effort good enough to win. Everything Lovely finished 2nd to a top female turf sprinter (Lady Shipman) last out in a similar stakes, with a field high 111 figure. Everything Lovely shows up every time like the other main contenders, and should be right there at the finish once more.

Bet Late Spring to win at odds of 3 to 1 or higher. Consider a second win bet on any of the other three contenders at odds of 7 to 2 or higher.

Play an exacta box consisting of Late Spring, Miss Ella, Fair Point and Everything Lovely.

Play an trifecta box consisting of Late Spring, Miss Ella, Fair Point and Everything Lovely.

RACE 6: Allowances/Optional Claiming | 7 Furlongs - TURF

Changewilldoyagood (12-1): Two-for-six on Belmont green, 2-for-17 doing anything else, and a winner at the trip. Lifetime best Pricci Energy Rating this course and trip but over yielding ground. Drawn well and reunites with winning rider Carmouche.

Plainview (10-1): Extremely hard hitting 8-year-old state-bred is 11-for-35 on turf, a six-time course winner, and deadly at this trip; (3) 2-1-0 slate. Top PER this class and distance, drops to winning level with Tyler Gaffalione an NY visitor. Knock is away since Dec., 2015.

Matador (20-1): Showed marked improvement winning Spa finale off barn change and takes confident rise for turf maven Mike Maker, but Irad off in favor of #4. Proven turf runner but has no experience this course or trip. Mixed signals.

Dowse’s Beach (7-2): Five time grass winner not particularly effective on Belmont turf but has winning connections all the way around. Missed by nose when returned to winning level here last out, earning excellent PER, and a winner this course and trip. Solid contender.

Hothersal (3-1): Hails from 28% Jason Servis shed and 8YO dropping from a series of G3s—second in Cliff Hanger last out at MTH. Returns with profitable spacing and gets switch to strong-finishing Antonio Gallardo. Figures not as fast but excellent class fit this level. Sold Contedner.

Betting with Ellis Starr - October 8, 2016


Kelso Handicap - Race #5 at Belmont – Approximate Post Time 2:28 PM ET

Point Piper ships across the country from California by way of Washington State, coming off a stirring 5 length win in the Longacres Mile. He earned a career best 119 Equibase figure in that race then was flattered when the runner-up won a stakes in Pennsylvania. Mario Gutierrez comes in from California to ride for top trainer Hollendorfer and with the horse having earned 4 of his 5 career wins at a mile he should run big in this one-turn mile race. Tommy Macho also won his last start, at a mile, back in February. Rested since then, if he picks up where he left off with a 115 Equibase figure effort he and Point Piper should come together at the wire. Tamarkuz finished 2nd in the Grade 1 Forego at 7 furlongs in his most recent start, to multiple grade 1 stakes winner A. P. Indian, who is running on Friday at Keeneland hoping to punch his ticket to the Breeders' Cup Sprint. Meanwhile, Tamarkuz can improve off best race since coming to the U.S. back in June, 2015, and with Smith riding him back off a 116 figure effort he rounds out a trio that stands out by a mile over the other four entrants in this race.

Bet Point Piper to win at odds of 2 to 1 or higher. Make a smaller win bet on Tommy Macho at odds of 3 to 1 or more.

Play an exacta and trifecta box consisting of Point Piper, Tommy Macho and Tamarkuz.

Bonus Friday Edition of Betting with Ellis


Phoenix Stakes - Race #8 at Keeneland – Scheduled Post Time 4:57 PM ET

Alsvid can run a lot better than the 7th place effort he put in last year in this race. He ran the two best races of his career this spring and summer, on May 6 and July 2. He didn't run as well in California but that's a different kind of track and he's been working lights out since returning to the Commonwealth. With 15 wins in 41 races and $1.3 million in earnings if he's in the mood he can get the dough as his best race is every bit as good as the favorite's best race but he will go to post at much higher odds. A.P. Indian is the likely heavy favorite based on having won two grade 1 stakes wins in a row. He's just as probable as Alsvid and must be used on any exacta, trifecta, pick 3 or similar tickets played. A.P. Indian skipped a big race in New York last weekend on a muddy track to run on dry land here and although he finished 6th in last year's edition of the Phoenix he is a different horse at this point in his career and could earn career win #11. Ami's Flatter won the Commonwealth Stakes at Keeneland six months ago at the slightly lower Grade 3 level. It showed he likes the track and although a well beaten fifth in both starts since if he runs fresh today the same way he ran fresh in the sprint he could post the upset.

Bet Alsvid to win at odds of 8 to 5 or higher.

Play an exacta box consisting of Alsvid, A. P. Indian and Ami's Flatter.
