Jeremy Plonk’s Horse Racing picks for 10/20

21

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

Keeneland Race No. 7 (4:12 p.m. ET/1:12 p.m. PT)
#12 Bipartisanship (3-1 ML)

 

As well as trainer Graham Motion's runners are firing at Keeneland this meeting, expect Bipartisanship to be cranked for a big effort in her first start since March. The barn has won at the current meet off an even-longer layoff than that and this filly has a lot of class about her. Win bet.

Keeneland Race No. 9 (5:16 p.m. ET/2:16 p.m. PT)
#3 Pure Pauline (3-1 ML)

Regally bred runner had an even debut in New York, but expected to move forward in this spot. Both trainer Todd Pletcher and jockey John Velazquez are striking at high rates this meeting and reunite in the day's finale. Win bet.
