After the past couple weekend of plentiful Breeders' Cup preps, racing fans and horseplayers will have to settle for a lone Grade 1 this weekend, the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup at Keeneland. But at least it's a good one with an overflow field of sophomore fillies.
The Betmix Angler online handicapping database has all the data needed to look for successful handicapping factors for any racetypes. In this instance, Angler reveals that the Last Late Pace factor has been very lucrative in the 9 furlong turf stakes on the Keeneland lawn.
One third of the contenders have crossed the wire first, including 74-1 Ever Dangerous (2020 Bryan Station S.) and a trio of recent QE II heroines.
