Keeneland - Race 11: Post 5:45 ET
This European-based daughter of Shamardal was a multiple group stakes winner during her 3-year-old season last year but in 2020 she’s taken a leap to near the top of her division in what so far has been a spotless campaign in three starts that includes recent back-to-back victories in the Prix Vermeille-G1 and Prix de l’Opera-G1. Equally effective on soft or firm and capable of producing a devastating turn of foot, the D. Weld-trained Irish-bred has Timeform ratings that make her a serious danger in what we’re expecting to be the best race of her career. At 6-1 on the morning line, she has an excellent chance to pull off an upset in the Breeders’ Cup Turf
Keeneland Race 12: Post: 6:15 ET
2-Tiz the Law (3-1)
Freshened since finishing second as the favorite in the Kentucky Derby, the son of Constitution has displayed his usual enthusiasm in recent workouts to indicate he’s set to regain his best form, and from his comfortable number two position he projects to draft into an ideal second flight, ground-saving trip and then have every chance to exert his superiority. This will be his first test against older competition but his dominant victory in the Travers Stakes, to our way of thinking, was the best performance of the year and if repeated should be good enough to win this year’s renewal of the Breeders’ Cup Classic.
