Saturday's 9th race (5:21pm ET) from Keeneland is the Grade I Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup for 3-year-old fillies traveling a mile and an eighth on the turf course.
#9 I'm Already Sexy (8-1) exits back-to-back Arlington turf stakes wins and I like her running style versatility. Geroux is 3-for-3 with her and he has options from the outside post.

#4 Alterite (9-5) is an obvious threat if she duplicates her winning US bow in the G1 Garden City. Some might expect a euro-bounce but Brown excels 2nd off the shelf.
#5 Emotional Kitten (6-1) is usually in the mix vs. turf stakes routers and will try to get involved late.
#7 Kitten's Dumplings (3-1) packs a nice late kick and the 5-time turf winner received a freshening after finishing a disappointing 4th as the beaten favorite in the G1 Del Mar Oaks.
#8 Leigh Court (10-1) brings a 3-race Woodbine stakes win streak to the table and the sharp early runner will take them as far as she can.
#6 Concise (12-1) has been nibbling vs. this kind since arriving from Great Britain.
#3 Caroline Thomas (12-1) can make a late impact if she gets enough pace help. Napravnik is a fine turf rider and she rode this one in the G2 Lake Placid.
#2 Say (10-1) failed to fire in last week's G1 First Lady. She dons the hood and her last win was at this trip.
#1 Sarach (10-1) owns early-pressing speed and the rail. The SoCal fillies could not hold home court advantage this summer and I do not expect them to win on the road.
$11 to win #9
