Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Thursday.
Keeneland Race 3 (2:04 pm ET)
#4 Windy City Red (3-1 ML)
With expected race favorites Alfie's Solomon and Feast dueling for the lead, last year's leading Keeneland jockey Tyler Gaffalione can draft behind with Windy City Red and get an ideal trip. The 6-1/2 furlong distance should both help his game and hinder his chief rivals. Win bet.
Keeneland Race 8 (4:44 pm ET)
#6 Curly Ruth (12-1 ML)
In what should be an extremely competitive 7-horse field, this longshot player returns to the scene of her Fall Meet turf victory over the outstanding front-runner Sweet Melania. She has been freshened for the Keeneland reappearance and fired nicely off the layoff in her 2021 return. Win-place bet.
