Feeder Tracks:
As they did last spring, the majority of the winners (36%) shipped in from Gulfstream Park. Of those, 14 made the switch from dirt to Polytrack. Eight of the winners breezed at Keeneland before their victory.


Five first time starters were victorious over the Polytrack. All five worked over the Keeneland track beforehand.


Three of the five shippers from Fair Grounds who previously raced over dirt worked on Poly before visiting the winners' circle.

any trainer at ANT competetive meet over 20% is doing soemthing right in directing his stock to race they can win.
I play KEE regularly so these updates are an excellent supplementary handicapping tool. I am surprised Michael Maker is only 24% wins. Seems like he is winning higher. I think in several of the races he has had multiple starters. 24% is exceptional considering the deep fields and quality barns. Asmussen seems to always struggle and continuing. Nice to see the recommendation you made at the start of the meet about GP is holding form. Looks like a workout over the surface should be closely followed.
