Note: In anticipation of his upcoming comprehensive coverage of the Breeders’ Cup World Championship (Friday-Saturday, Nov. 4 and 5, at Keeneland), regular Team Tuley's Thoroughbred Takes member and VSiN handicapper Ed Sehon (aka Mr. Ed) will share his Play of the Day throughout the regular Keeneland fall meeting. After an 0-for-4 start, he's 2-0 with a pair of scratches over the last 4 racing days, including a score with Gina Romantica ($11.06) in Race 9 last Saturday.
Mr. Ed’s Keeneland Play of the Day (10/19)
Race 8 (4:44 p.m. ET/1:44 p.m. PT).
In finale, I like #11 Top Gun Girl (4-1 morning line). I cannot remember ever selecting the last runner in the last race of a program, until today. Superior turf sprint trainer Wesley Ward brings back HOF rider Johnny Velazquez to guide speedy sophomore as she cuts back a full furlong from Place finish over challenging Kentucky Downs sod four weeks ago. She broke her maiden here a year ago and a pair of recent works indicate she’s ready to repeat that effort. And the last shall be first!
