Keeneland: Sat. scratches, etc.


Yet one more beautiful day here in the Bluegrass, where I bet we'll get more than 25,000 ontrack, what with the Ky-Ga football going on tonight. The stakes is the Raven Run, an impossibly wide-open G2 Polytrack race that could produce any number of results . . . although it'd be hard to top the 6th race yesterday, when a 57-1 won over a 34-1, producing a $2,500 dime super. Anyway, lots of good racing here today, and if you're looking to get away to a quick start, I've got a feeling that Sheltered (#5) could be tough in the opener for a trainer named P.J.McGee.

Fast Poly, firm turf, first post for the 10-race card is 1:15 ET. Here are the handful of early scratches and changes:

Race 3 - SCR #9 U D Ghetto

Race 4 - SCR #2 Odds on (no superfecta wagering)

Race 5 - SCR #7 Habitual

Race 7 - SCR #1 Lauren's Heather; SCR #4 Queen Ernestine; SCR #13 (ae) Pickpocket Patty; J.Leparoux rides #3 Creek Girl
