Keeneland: Sun. scratches, etc.


It's another spectacular autumn day in the Bluegrass as Keeneland winds down the first full week of fall-meet action with a 9-race Sunday card. Fast Poly, firm turf, high temps well into the 70s . . . somebody bottle this and sell it . . .

Wow, was Harmonious ever impressive yesterday in blowing doors in the QE II . . . made a mockery of what we all thought was an evenly matched field. And that Rosario . . . if he's not THE next superstar jock, there ain't a cow in Texas, as they say . . .

I really like some horses today - some obvious, some not so. Here are some quick hits on my more preferred DRF picks: Adhsilver in the 2nd, St. Joe in the 3rd, Tarraduf in the 4th, Banned in the 5th, and They Call Me Giant in the 8th . .  . Let's end this week on a good note.

First post today is 1:15 ET, then we go dark Mon and Tue before another 5-day week picks back up Wed. Here follow the early scratches and changes for Sunday:
