Track:  Keeneland
Race: 8  Post Time: 4:57pm ET

Thursday's 8th race from Keeneland (10-19-17) is the Grade 3 Sycamore Stakes for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a half on the turf course. 

#13 MANITOULIN (8-1) ran well in both local turf starts including a 9f entry level win under today’s rider Geroux April 27. After that race, he won again at 9f under Geroux at Belmont June 10, finished an even 4th in the G3 Arlington Handicap July 8, rallied for 2nd at Saratoga Aug 19, and won as the chalk in a 10f optional claimer at Belmont Sept 20. He typically earns quality Late pace Ratings and should offer value.

#2 Some In Tieme (9-2) ran well in both starts for McPeek including a sharp late running victory in the G3 Louisville Handicap May 20. He missed by a neck in his lone local outing under today’s rider Albarado April 19.

#12 Nessy (12-1) does not win often but is frequently in the mix for minor awards and he rallied for the place in his last two local turf starts.
