The Elkhorn Stakes highlights the final Saturday card of the 2021 Keeneland Spring meeting and the turf marathon has drawn a typically competitive 10-horse field.

We used the Betmix Angler online handicapping database to see what handicapping factors have been predictive in these grassy graded long-distance heats and found that Avg. Best 2 of Last 3 Speed may be the one to focus on.

Nearly a quarter of the contenders ranking first in this factor have been led into the infield winner's circle while producing a $32.60 Win Return. The sample includes the last three Elkhorn winners: Zulu Alpha ($4.00), Bigger Picture ($16.60) and One Go All Go ($21.20).
