Kentucky Downs Ladies Marathon Betting Preview

The Kentucky Downs Ladies Marathon features six contenders, including a select group of horses with impressive year-round achievements, promising an exciting and enthralling spectacle on the track. There are a variety of different opportunities that could arise here.

Four out of the six competitors have placed fifth in their most recent race. There is also only one horse here that is coming off of a victory.

Horses with Best Chance to Win

Below you can see how each horse in this race has a chance to win, with some being more appealing contenders than others. You will also see valuable insight for betting on exacta and trifecta outcomes.

Sinfiltre 4-1

Sinfiltre is the only horse besides Transient to place within the top three in their last events. She is coming off of a third place result at the Kentucky Downs Preview Ladies Turf Mile LS. Looking at her six races this year, she has the recent third place, but also three victories that will give her and the jockey some positive momentum heading into this one.

Personal Best 3-1

Personal Best, despite placing fifth in the Matchmaker Stakes, is coming off of a G3 event. This bodes well for her chances in this event, as the competition is arguably a little better for her and she has increased her HRN speed numbers in recent events. She has four events under her belt this season, with one placing each by victory, runner-up, and in third place.

  • Lady Rcokstar: 6-1

  • Vergara: 2-1

  • Glenall: 12-1

  • Transient 3-1

Transient is the only horse here coming off of a victory, which was at the Powder Break LS. Only one other horse in this competition placed top three in their recent race, making her a top contender.

Out of four races this year, she has the recent win plus one runner-up and a third place finish. Recent HRN speed numbers have been solid, but this will be a tough matchup. She is an appealing option to consider for this year’s event.

Final Pick: Take Transient at 3-1 to Win
