Jeremy Plonk’s Best Bets for Thursday (4-28-22)


Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Thursday.

Keeneland Race 5 (3:08 pm ET)
#2 Castle Leoch (3-1 ML)

Trainer Wesley Ward has absolutely owned the turf sprint races at the Keeneland meet, winning 7 of the 12 offered to date. He's got 2 entrants in this race, but it's Castle Leoch preferred with superb turf sprint jockey Joel Rosario teamed. Win bet, and exacta box with stablemate #8 American Starlet. Also consider daily double to our next selection.


Keeneland Race 6 (3:40 pm ET)
#11 Ulikeapples (8-1 ML)

With several inexperienced horses in this race for trainers that often get bet hard at Keeneland, the lean is to this fleet runner from Chicago to get slightly overlooked in the betting. Trainer Larry Rivelli is well known for his sprint speed, but up against horses from Chad Brown, Brad Cox et al should keep this one a playable price. Wire to wire threat. Win bet.
