An overflow field has been drawn for the rich Jeff Ruby Steaks, the last stop on the Turfway Park road to the Kentucky Derby.

It's a typically tricky race for horseplayers with contenders descending from points all across North America, with varying levels of experience over an all-weather surface.

We fired up the powerful Betmix Angler online handicapping database to look for clues in the 8-furlong Stake in Florence (Y'all) and found that the Avg. Speed Last 3 has produced 27% winners and positive across the board returns. Among the winners are 3 of the past 6 Ruby winners, Blended Citizen ($14.40), Somelikeithotbrown ($3.20) and last year's champ Two Phil's ($7.64), who would then finish a valiant 2nd in the Kentucky Derby.
