Longshot Look Presented By Kentucky Downs: A ‘Good’ Start To Sunday’s Handicapping

Kentucky Downs

The elite Kentucky Downs meet rolls on, featuring some of the nation's largest purses and field sizes, and one of the most attractive wagering menus on the racing calendar.

The Paulick Report is back with another season of Longshot Look to help you get the most out of one of North America's premier turf meets.

For each card of the seven-day meet, J.D. Fox will single out a price play with his reasoning for what makes the horse worth a look when they might go overlooked.

On Sunday's card, Fox has his eye on a horse in Race 9, the Kentucky Downs Juvenile Mile Stakes. After showing a lot of heart in his first two starts, Fox's pick will make his stakes debut on Sunday at morning line odds of 12-1.

In the event of inclement weather around Franklin, Ky., we've introduced J.D.'s “Scratch Saver” pick to increase the chances of the host helping you find a winner, whether they're a longshot or not.

Sunday's “Scratch Saver” pick comes in Race 2, where Fox likes #12 Modern Sound at odds of 10-1 on the morning line. Modern Sound ran well closing on yielding turf sprinting on debut. She should appreciate stretch out and trainer Chris Block is 20 percent with maidens second out and 26 percent with a $4.18 ROI taking runners from sprint to route.

Kentucky Downs' 2023 meet takes place Aug. 31 and Sept. 2, 3, 7, 9, 10 and 13. First post each day is at 12:25 p.m. Central, except for the Saturday, Sept. 9 card, which features a special start time of 11:30 a.m. Central.
