If fields stay intact, there are four races worth handicapping further given the ThoroPACE Forecast.
Keeneland Race 3:
Pace Forecast -6.9
Most Likely Leader: #3
The pace is projected to be neutral, but that would be a big improvement for #1 L. A. Star, who has closed into two very speed-favoring races this September.
Keeneland Race 5:
Pace Forecast: +27.0
Most Likely Leaders: #4
The pace should be swift, and that would be of great benefit to #2 Three Tipsy Chix, #11 Chione, and #12 Queen Judith.
Keeneland Race 6:
Pace Forecast: +12.7
Most Likely Leader: #4
The anticipated quicker-than-average pace should benefit Iowa shipper #2 Knocker Down.
Keeneland Race 8:
Pace Forecast: +22.3
Most Likely Leader: #12
#4 Overbore closed considerable ground at Saratoga despite a speed-favoring pace and the absence of a whip. Today’s pace should make things easier for this stakes-winning gelding.
*NOTE: ThoroPACE Pace Forecasts range from -35 (best for speed) to +35 (best for stretch runners). Also, our products are updated to reflect scratches as they become available (typically an update of our products occurs around 11AM, 3PM and 6PM ET each day).
