Keeneland: Psst...gotta tip for ya in Friday's second race - Goodtimehadbyall

Email

A heads up for Keeneland players out there -  a great value play looms in the second race at Keeneland today: # 4 Goodtimehadbyall, who sits at 8-1 on the morning line.

Coming off a distant seventh-place finish in stakes company at Presque Isle, the public will likely overlook him a bit in this $50,000 claiming race, questioning his form.

Don't make that mistake. Last time he faced much, much better and lost all chance when caught right behind horses in a spill.

Toss that race out, and Goodtimehadbyall has plenty to offer. He is a proven synthetic performer, having won a maiden race over the Tapeta surface at Presque Isle In September, and three of his Beyer Speed Figures (two 64s and a 67) exceed the career-best Beyers of his opponents.

Throw in a good work at Churchill October 15, in which he breezed a half in 48.40 seconds over a dull strip and this one's appeal becomes clear.

As we approach race one, it's time to bet some doubles and pick threes...
