Jeremy Plonk’s Horse Racing picks for 10/16


XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Sunday.

Keeneland Race No. 5 (3:08 p.m. ET/12:08 p.m. PT)
#4 Just Say When (7-2 ML)


Beautifully drawn in this turf sprint and rising in class while in superb current form. Catches likely short-priced favorite Kaufymaker at the right time. Be on the lookout for late-running Switzer for a share. Bet 4 to Win. Exacta 4-10.

Keeneland Race No. 8 (4:44 p.m. ET/1:44 p.m. PT)
#9 No Shirt No Shoes (20-1 ML)

Longshot look to the only horse in this race to have won previously at Keeneland, and in a fast time at that when rallying here in the 2021 Fall Meet. Never easy to rally late at Prairie Meadows, where he has been racing of late, so don't hold recent losses fully against him. Win-Place bet.
