Wednesday Keeneland Watch

Woodbine remains dark for thoroughbreds until Friday but the Keeneland meeting in Lexington, Kentucky continues tomorrow with some interesting races.

Two-year-olds are in action in race 4 and the meet's leading juvenile trainer, Steve Asmussen, has two in the field including the fancy-looking Sequoia King. If you're looking for an alternative for betting purposes, or thinking of an exactor, try FUTURE PROSPECT, who worked 2 furlongs in a rapid :21 3/5 for that 2yo sale in Florida in February.

A mismatch is in the works in race 7 with the return of GORELLA, the filly who was a very troubled 3rd in the Breeders' Cup Mile behind Artie Schiller last fall at Belmont Park. Trained by Patrick Biancone, Gorella lays over the small field traveling 1 1/8 miles on the grass. Bettors are sure to go bananas over her in Win 4 and Pick 4 wagers.

In the 9th and final race, TWIST OF LEMON makes his grass debut and is by a top turf sire in Lemon Drop Kid and a half-brother to 4 turf winners.
