1/ST and NBC Sports handicapper Eddie Olczyk returns for his Saturday, April 10 spot plays at Keeneland. While there's an all-stakes pick four later in the card, featuring the Grade 1 Jenny Wiley, the undercard is where Edzo will be looking to make his bankroll moves.
KEENELAND // RACE 4 (2:45PM ET) // ALLOWANCE // 1 1/16 MILES (TURF)
EDDIE'S PICK: #2 ETHICAL JUDGEMENT (3/1)
This is a a race where you take your shot; it's wide, wide open. Ethical Judgement gets first Lasix for Brendan Walsh. He has a bullet workout in his most-recent morning move for a trainer who doesn’t really set his horses down in the a.m. That's a good sign by me. His lone grass start was good and 4-1 odds or better will make for a decent win wager. His price could rise off the morning line with Aviano and Floriform expected to be bet.
KEENELAND // RACE 6 (3:51PM ET) // ALLOWANCE // 1 1/16 MILES (DIRT)
EDDIE'S PICK: #2 WEST WILL POWER (2/1)
Going 2 turns is the key for me with this horse. His last race was a rough assignment in a 1-turn mile against strong competition. I say follow the speed of Noren, who is the speed of the race, and make one run at him. West Will Power could get bet as low as 9/5 and it would be okay with me. Win bet.
