Check out my Thursday (4-11-24) Race 7 analysis at Keeneland below. 

KEE 7 (OC-30k/3L, 3&up, 8.5f)
Primary – #10 HAROLD’S CLOUD, #8 My Romeo Lima
Secondary – #3 Cooke Creek, #7 Sant’ Antimo

Horse Comments:

#10 Harold’s Cloud (4-1) rolled by open lengths in a $15k/2L affair at Fair Grounds last November and Tom Amoss claimed him that day. He misfired in his next three starts vs. allowance and starter allowance foes, and bounced back with a runner-up finish as the beaten favorite in a $30k/3L spot at Fair Grounds on March 6. He landed the place in his lone local attempt and should be forwardly placed from the outside post. Edgar Morales stays put and he shows a profit with this barn recently. 

#8 My Romeo Lima (5-1) set the pace and ended up a neck behind Harold’s Cloud last time. He should be all over the pace again and might be fitter in his second start after a layoff. 

#3 Cooke Creek (5-2) drops out of the optional-claiming ranks and might be competitive vs. these. This one captured the Rocky Run Stakes at Delaware in 2021, and placed in the Nashua (G3) and Jerome. He lost his way after that but was able to hit the board in four optional-claiming races. He landed the show in both local outings, and adds blinkers and is entered for the $30k tag. 

#7 Sant’ Antimo (7-2) dropped to a new low and was third by a neck in a $15k/3L affair at Turfway on March 1, and he was claimed out of that heat by profitable trainer Jesus Esquivel. The versatile gelding won an entry level allowance dirt route at Ellis Park last summer.
