Races of the Week
Last week, both of my selections finished in the money, but neither won. Vestrey Lady finished second in the Raven Run Stakes, paying $13.60 to place and $9.20 to show. Sky Conqueror finished third in the Canadian International, paying $5.10 to show.
This week, the Daily Racing Form's races of the week are the Fayette Stakes, scheduled for today at Keeneland, and the Nashua Stakes, to be run tomorrow at Aqueduct.
My selection in the Fayette is Ball Four. Ball Four is 2 for 3 on the polytrack at Turfway Park, and appears to be the only early speed in the race. Ball Four has been training well on the polytrack at Keeneland, and his trainer, Patrick Biancone, is 10 for 32 at this meet. The Form provides free past performances.
In the Nashua, I'll go with Sightseeing, who has shown that he can get the distance and is coming off of a bullet work at Belmont. The DRF provides free past performances.
