Analysis:
HONOR IN PEACE goes out for a deadly first-out barn, and attracts Garrett Gomez for the debut mount. The sire is clicking at 20% with all debut runners in 2009.
REP also makes his debut for strong first-out connections, and he's caught the eye of the Keeneland Clockers in the morning. According to the Clocker Report for April 3, Rep "broke a bit tardy and edged Killa and Maji Moto in a good effort." The April 10 drill was a "sharp gate work, a length of so better than Maji Moto."
WESTERN SMOKE's trainer, Steve Asmussen, is one of the best in the world with juvenile debut runners, and this colt's sire was a quick sprinter.
PART OF THE ACTION is bred for grass, and that may play out well over this polytrack surface. BIGSHOT's workout on April 10 "went in company with Nobles Promise, these two were together in a good effort." Trainer Ken McPeek has sent out some live runners at this meet. DREAM VICTORY and RIDE COWBOY RIDE return on short notice after being drubbed in their debuts. The former adds blinkers. MICKEJOE only cost $6,500 as a yearling

Selections:
1. Honor in Peace
2. Rep
3. Western Smoke

The Play:
Honor in Peace to Win at 8-5 odds or greater

Analysis:
GRAND TIMES is bred for speed as a half-brother to the quick Accredit, and he has Wesley Ward and Garrett Gomez in his corner for the debut run.
BILLET shows some intriguing workouts for his debut for Asmussen, and mustn't be ignored.
SCOTTKEITH'SKITTEN draws a tough inside post, and may want a bit more ground to work with.
CHEQUE APPEAL is bred for speed on the top of the pedigree. MISSION IMPAZIBLE goes out for the powerful Todd Pletcher barn, and has looked good in his local morning trials. On April 4, the Keeneland Clockers noted that he gave a "good effort from the gate, a little better than Proud Zoe at the wire." The next week, they noted that he was "a little better than Proud Zoe, could have done more." This colt cost $200,000 as a yearling, and wouldn't be a surprise at all. GORDON BENNETT gave a "useful gate effort, without company," according to the Keeneland Clockers for his April 3 workout. EVEN WILDER tired in his debut, but may show some speed with the addition of blinkers. JOHN B. W. may be in a bit steep. LOW COUNTRY MAN may need a bit weaker.
