Note: In anticipation of his trip next month to Lexington, KY, to report on the 2022 Breeders’ Cup World Championships (Friday-Saturday, Nov. 4 and 5, at Keeneland), VSiN handicapper Ed Sehon (aka Mr. Ed) is sharing his Play of the Day throughout the regular Keeneland fall meeting. His Thursday selection, #7 Actuator finished, second, teaming with winner #13 Trademark to complete a $293.10 Exacta on a $2 ticket.
Mr. Ed’s Keeneland Play of the Day (10/21)
Race 8 (4:44 p.m. ET/1:44 p.m. PT)
I like #6 Scotish Star (5-2 morning line). Red-hot Hall of Fame trainer Todd Pletcher ships down Argentine-bred, 5-year-old mare from Saratoga off gutsy mile-on-turf score. Returning to dirt, sharp rider Luis Saez picks up mount following series of four solid works. Daughter of Key Deputy is a rising star, irrespective of name or heritage. Note: in the last 6 racing days, we're 3-2-1-0 -- for those who don't know, that means 3 starts, 2 Wins, 1 Place and 3 scratches, so our picks have been live as long as they make it to the starting gate.
