Longshot Look Presented By Kentucky Downs: The French Connection

Kentucky Downs in Franklin, Ky.

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 Thursday's card, Fox will be looking at Race 3, a one-mile race for fillies and mares three years old and up. At morning line odds of 10-1, Fox's pick will make her first U.S. start on Thursday after a Group 1-placed campaign in France.

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.

His Scratch Saver on Thursday's card is #8 Foreseen in Race 10. Trainer Rusty Arnold is 27 percent with second-time starters with a strong ROI ($3.39). The filly is a half-sister to graded stakes winner Anothertwistafate and graded stakes-placed Ajourneytofreedom with big turf pedigree, and should improve greatly from the surface switch. Her morning line odds were set at 20-1.

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.
