Weekend Warrior for Oct. 5: Picks for Jamaica, First Lady, Santa Anita Sprint Championship


This is the second of two hugely important weekends of final prep races for the Breeders’ Cup, and on Saturday, Keeneland leads the way. Three of the five stakes on Keeneland’s card are Grade 1 events: the $750,000 Shadwell Turf mile, featuring Horse of the Year Wise Dan; the $400,000 First Lady; and the $400,000 Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity. Supporting these events are the Grade 2, $200,000 Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes, which lured champion Groupie Doll, and the Grade 3, $150,000 Woodford Stakes.
