Longshot Look Presented By Kentucky Downs: Charging Toward A Price On Saturday’s Card

The Fanduel Meet at Kentucky Downs is underway, 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's Longshot Look will help you get the most out of one of North America's premier turf meets.

For each card of the 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 Saturday's packed stakes card, J.D. will focus on a 12-1 shot in Race 5, the one-mile Grade 3 WinStar Mint Million Stakes. His pick has been known to pull a pricy upset in the past, and he has had success over the unique Kentucky Downs course.

J.D.'s “Scratch Saver” pick comes in Race 10, the Grade 2 Kentucky Cup Turf Stakes, where he'll have an eye on #7 Admission Office.

The lightly raced 7-year-old gelding is in racing shape and has a win this year with jockey John Velazquez aboard. The 10-1 shot needs a clean trip through the field, but has one of the best closing kicks in the field.

Kentucky Downs' 2022 meet takes place Sept. 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 11, and 14. First post each day is at 12:25 p.m. Central, except for the Saturday, Sept. 10 card, which features a special start time of 11:30 a.m. Central.
