2019 Blue Grass Picks and Wagering Guide from Keeneland

2019 Blue Grass Picks and Wagering Guide from Keeneland

R.A. Hill Stable and Gatsas Stables’ Vekoma, the morning-line favorite for the $1 million Toyota Blue Grass (G2), will be chasing history Saturday when he makes his fourth career start.

No horse since Coaltown in 1948 has won the Blue Grass coming into the event with just three lifetime starts, but that is what Vekoma will do Saturday.

“He is a late May foal and after the Nashua (G3) last year he indicated he may need a break so we passed the Remsen (G2) and decided to focus on his 3-year-old campaign,” trainer George Weaver said.

All eyes will be on Keeneland as the card is LOADED with 5 incredible stakes races. We are going ALL IN with this 11-race card! If you want some simple win picks, you can check out our free daily win picks for Keeneland here. Looking to make a BIG SCORE? You’ll want to keep reading below.

The $1,000,000 Toyota Blue Grass (G2) is the main event Saturday at Keenland, serving as a 100-point prep race for the Kentucky Derby (G1). Along with the Blue Grass, there will be four other graded stakes races on the card, including the Central Bank Ashland (G1) – a major prep for the Kentucky Oaks (G1) – along with the Madison (G1), the Shakertown (G2), and the Commonwealth (G3).
