Check out my Keeneland free pick for Saturday (4-22-23) below.

Jarrod’s Recent Keeneland Free Pick Winners
April 15 – First Mission ($16.38), Trifecta ($109.28)
April 16 – Key of Life/Interpolate Exacta ($6.70)

KEE 9 (G3 Ben Ali, 9.5f)
Primary – #1 PIONEER OF MEDINA, #4 Skippylongstocking
Secondary – #7 Tawny Port
Wagers: #1 to win, Exacta 1-4/1-4-7, Trifecta 1-4/ALL/7

Comments: #1 Pioneer of Medina (7-2) should make his presence felt throughout from the inside post. He stubbed his toe in the New Orleans Classic last time but was sharp prior to that. He set the pace and held the place in the Harlan’s Holiday (G3) late last year, and picked up a stakes win in the Mineshaft (G3) Feb. 18. #4 Skippylongstocking (7-5) is the one to beat. He always wins when he races at this graded level and should sit a decent tactical trip under Irad Ortiz Jr. #7 Tawny Port (8-1) adds blinkers and Flavien Prat wins races with Brad Cox. He ran some quality races last year and might wake up in his third start after a layoff. ​
