Here we go! Keeneland roars back to life with typically deep and contentious cards to open up the 2023 Fall Meeting.

Perhaps the two toughest contests over the first three days of the meet are the two Grade 1's for the juvenile set, Friday's Alcibiades and Saturday's Breeders' Futurity. Each as drawn typically deep and contentious fields.

So what does the Betmix Angler online handicapping database have to say about these races? Angler tells us that the Last E1 Pace handicapping factor has pointed to 15% winners of the recent 8.5 furlong dirt Grade 1´s at the historic Lexington oval.

The whopping $109 Win Return was certainly helped by 70-1 Knicks Go in 2018 but this factor has also pointed to other double digit winners like Gomo, who paid $12.60 to his backers in the 2015 Futurity and last year's Alcibiades heroine Wonder Wheel ($15).

Find this race in Betmix Birddog and use the Last E1 Pace  slider to see which horse ranks first in this factor. That’s the Sharp Angles play.
