Mr. Ed's Keeneland Play of the Day 10/9

By Ed Sehon  ( handicapper) 

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 (10/9)

Race 5 (3:20 p.m. ET/12:20 p.m. PT).

My pick is #8 Aztec Nights (5-2 morning line). If there is a more engaging trainer in the game than Wayne “the Catman” Catalano, then I’ve yet to meet them. A compact former jockey with a firm handshake and a welcoming smile, he just happens to be a very successful conditioner as well. Breaking from the outside post, Catman’s improving 2-year-old son of super sire Sharp Azteca tries two-turn dirt route following pair of turf sprints. Jockey Ricardo Santana retains mount. Wager: Win.
