TROUBLE IN RIVER CITY

Posted by on 11/21/2013 8:31:57 PM

The song from the Music Man extravaganza revolving around trouble in River City reflects the changing of culture but online sports betting site players have a real puzzle to decipher Saturday at Churchill Downs with the River City Handicap.

Carded for 9 furlongs on the grass, this Grade 3 event has enticed a competitive field of 15.

From the rail out: Villandry has two races now to draw from and he may have hated the rail last time when caught in a traffic jam. He is back on his preferred surface.

Olympic Thunder is seeking his first stateside win while Set the Sail brings speed to the party but there are others in here with designs on the top.

Keep Up will be trying to defend his River City title. He came into this race last year off a winning Beyer Speed Figure of 91 when he won a $100,000 optional. In this last race, he beat classified allowance foes with a 94 figure.

Any horse that can beat 15 rivals in a maiden breaker can run and that is exactly what Kalamos accomplished in France. He made his U.S. debut in October and won at Keeneland when the race came off the grass.

Exothermic looked good winning last time but seems ambitiously spotted.

Coalport has not ducked anybody this year. He faced a good group last time and Wise Dan came out of that race to win BC Day. He does have a penchant for finding the wire but must prove it in Graded company.

Seruni overcame trouble for his only win this year but never kicked in his October finale.

Daddy Nose Best is a nice useful horse but this race is a far cry from beating up minor stakes foes at Remington Park.

Tahoe Lake has only won twice in his career and neither win came in the last 2 years.

Ol Army has won one to go and that???s to try to go to the lead and improve his position from there.

Grand Arch ran well in defeat here last year but he was losing ground in the lane when second. His only score this year came in an optional claimer.

Potomac River can be his own worst enemy because he has no speed.

Skyring seemed to be set for a big year after winning the Grade 2 Dixie at Pimlico in May but he has not been in the same zip code of a winner since.

Star Channel is a reformed claimer that has been out of the money twice on this turf course.

Kalamos has only run 2 off races in his career and he got a boost when the horse that beat him only a neck in France last year, took a Group 3 next out. And the place horse in that Group 3 won a $200,000 stakes next out in Dubai.

This colt has trained forwardly for clever trainer Bill Mott since and Kalamos is the pick to win.

Good luck.
