Old Fashioned has yet to run back to his 2-year-old form (according to Beyer numbers), which is not a good sign. Leg weary late in Rebel, the guess here is that new jock rates behind Papa Clem attempting to reserve Old Fashioned's fortunes. I give him a 50/50 chance at winning.
Win Willy is set to bounce, period.
Danger to Society is trained by Rick Dutrow Jr. and love him or hate him his first-time with a horse win percentage is over 30 percent. That alone gives this entry a chance, so I will.
Among the bombs that might beat Old Fashioned yet again, I like these two
- Ziegfeld - first time blinkers for lightly raced colt
- Captain Cherokee - half to Midnight Lute
The Blue Grass is a dart board handicapping event. I see no one as a standout. Besides these tosses - Cliffy's Future, Loch Dubh and General Quarters - anyone of the eight remaining runners has a chance. According to Gary Stevens on HRTV's Pursuit of the Crown, Keenland is holding up speed. If this is true, go with Join in the Dance.
