McGee: Keeneland pick four for Sunday, April 9


Yes, Sweet Loretta and Dancing Rags are Grade 1 winners already – and good for their connections, as they’re “made” fillies with a certain level of worth having already been attained. However, that’s neither here nor there in regard to how they’ll fare when returning from layoffs of more than five months today in the Grade 3 Beaumont Stakes (R8). And, working on the premise that their Beyer Speed Figures weren’t that great even during their successful runs as 2-year-olds, we’ll take a stand against them as the two heavy favorites (7-5 and 9-5 on the morning line) when laying out this pick-four play.
