Sometimes finding a winner is as easy as hopping aboard with the hottest jockey. That appears to be the way to go in the marathon turf stakes at Keeneland. The past 40 12-furlong stakes at the Lexington oval have yielded a total of 51 contenders ranked first in Jockey Current Meet. Eight (15%) have won, half of them at double-digit odds. The flat win bet profit on those 21 contenders is a juicy $34.20.
Nearly half of the contenders have hit the board so this factor is very good place to start when putting together an exotics ticket.
