2013 Madison Stakes Results -Keeneland Saturday, April 13, 2013


You quickly realize this race is a total handicapping scramble when you see all the different tracks each of these runners last ran at. Throw in the quirky Keeneland polytrack surface and it’s ripe for a big balloon payoff. Here’s my analysis for Madison Stakes in post position order:

Horse Racing#1 BYRAMA invades from Santa Anita where most of her running has been on the turf. Her lone career polytrack effort (at Del Mar) resulted in a second place finish.

#2 QUEEN’S AWARD’s last win was at this track at boxcar odds of 29/1 back in October. At least we know she likes the track.

#3 HOLIDAY FOR KITTEN is a Grade 2 winner over this surface. Freshened since September, her owner (and trainer) point their stock to this meet every year.

139th KENTUCKY DERBY – 2013

#4 KUNE KUNE last ran at Tampa Bay Downs but did beat a field of 11 in her only start over a polytrack surface in November, 2011 in Great Britain.

#5 LAST FULL MEASURE has never sprinted in her ten race career. Has the look of an outsider.

#6 JAMAICAN SMOKE is the speed of the race and won her only start over the strip.

#7 SHUMOOS is similar to KUNE KUNE in that she also won over the same Kempton Park polytrack surface overseas.

#8 DRAMA DRAMA lacks early speed but did finish third in the Grade 2 Raven Run over this track last October.

#9 DR. DIAMONDS PRIZE puts blinkers back on after fading to last in her comeback race last month.

#10 FANTASY OF FLIGHT has been freshened since February and is two for three at this distance.

1. #6 JAMAICAN SMOKE – Is the speed of the speed.

2. #10 FANTASY OF FLIGHT – Dangerous at a price.

3. #3 HOLIDAY FOR KITTEN – Trainer excels with sprinters.

LONG SHOT VALUE PLAY: #1 BYRAMA – Route to sprint foundation.

Where there’s chaos, there’s money to be made and with that in mind, let’s see if we can connect the dots on $5 trifectas by keying our top two choices (#6 JAMAICAN SMOKE and #10 FANTASY OF FLIGHT) on top with # 1 BYRAMA, #3 HOLIDAY FOR KITTEN, #8 DRAMA DRAMA underneath.
