2020 Hagyard Fayette Stakes Handicapping
A pair of graded stakes races are on the board for Saturday afternoon at Keeneland, including the (G2) Hagyard Fayette, open to horses aged three and older.
The race has drawn a field of 10, and they’ll be running 1 1/8 miles on the Keeneland dirt course.
Odds listed here are provided by the Keeneland track handicapper.
2020 Hagyard Fayette Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Mr. Freeze Race Odds: 3-1
A horse with multiple graded-stakes wins to his name, Mr. Freeze has hit a rough patch lately while finishing out of the money in both of his last two starts.
Last out he was up against a very tough field in the (G2) Alysheba Stakes but didn’t really have an excuse when giving up the lead late and fading to sixth. He has a win on the season in the (G2) Gulfstream Park Mile, but hasn’t won going 1 1/8 miles since August 2018.
Trainer Dale Romans is a two-time winner of the race, the jockey will be Javier Castellano.
2020 Hagyard Fayette Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Aurelius Maximus Race Odds: 10-1
Big things were expected of Aurelius Maximus when he made his debut as a two year old in 2018, but he has had injury problems – only running once in 2019 – and has yet to fulfill his potential.
He comes into this having won two straight in his return to the racing, both at the allowance level. Now he takes a big step up in class and tries to prove he’s a legitimate graded-stakes horse.
The trainer is Steve Asmussen, jockey Ricardo Santana Jr gets the call to ride.
2020 Hagyard Fayette Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Tax Race Odds: 7-2
A Kentucky Derby contender just last year, Tax might be considered as another in the field that hasn’t quite lived up to his early promise.
He’s been off since May after running fifth in the (G2) Oaklawn Handicap. He gets credit for competing against good horses at the highest level and gets some class relief here, but is looking for his first win in over a year.
He’s trained by the up-and-coming Danny Gargan, jockey Tyler Gaffalione will ride.
2020 Hagyard Fayette Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Crafty Daddy Race Odds: 5-1
The most intriguing horse in the race, Crafty Daddy has run eight of 10 lifetime races on turf, and has done fairly well with three wins and eight in-the-money finishes in those races.
Last out in a race that was scheduled for turf but moved to dirt he not only got up for the win, but also scored his highest ever lifetime Equibase speed figure. He has a win at the distance and at Keeneland to his name, but again, those races came on the turf.
He’s trained by Ken McPeek, Brian Hernandez Jr is set to ride.
Here’s My 2020 Hagyard Fayette Stakes Free Pick.
I’ll admit I had a very tough time handicapping this race because it seems like there are questions to be had with all the top contenders as well as some of the middle and long shots.
On back class Mr. Freeze and Tax are the two best horses in the race, but I can’t shake the feeling both are headed in the wrong direction at this point in their career. So that said, I’m going to play Crafty Daddy for the win thinking his last race showed he is actually faster on dirt than grass.
