Editor's note: In anticipation of his upcoming coverage of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships (Friday and Saturday, Nov. 4 and 5, at Keeneland), regular Team Tuley's Thoroughbred Takes contributor and VSiN handicapper Ed Sehon (aka Mr. Ed) will share his Play of the Day throughout the regular Keeneland fall meeting.
Mr. Ed’s Keeneland Play of the Day (10/8)
Race 7 (4:10 p.m. ET/1:10 p.m. PT)
My pick is #2 Palm Cottage (4-1 morning line) for team of up-and-coming conditioner Paulo Lobo and top jock Flavien Prat. Winner of last two vs. lesser company at Saratoga and Ellis Park, daughter of Triple Crown sire American Pharoah, filly has hit her stride since relocating from barn of Brad Cox. Recent bullet works indicate she’s ready to tackle graded stakes company. Wager: Win.
