Check out my Keeneland free pick for Saturday (4-8-23) below.

KEE 5 (G3 Commonwealth, 7f)
Primary – #7 RUN CLASSIC
Secondary – #9 Here Mi Song, #4 Heart Rhythm
Wagers: #7 to win, Trifecta 7/4-9/ALL, Trifecta 7/ALL/4-9

Comments: I have been waiting for #7 Run Classic (3-1) to turn back, and Calhoun finally pulls the trigger. He won back-to-back dirt sprints last fall including a romping local tally at seven panels. He stretched out and blew a clear lead at CD in November, and could not quicken in a pair of 4th place finishes in stakes races. Last time, he pressed, led, and finished a close 3rd in the Mineshaft (G3). Gutierrez knows him now and he should be forwardly placed. #9 Here Mi Song (10-1) is back on dirt after three synthetic stakes tries. He finished 1-2 in eight of twelve starts on the main track, and was part of the exacta in all three local attempts. #4 Heart Rhythm (10-1) is 3-for-3 at Keeneland. He exits a win in the slop and has won at this distance before.
