Ellis Starr's Picks

August 21, 2022


Race 6

Win contenders with minimum (fair) odds for considering win bets:
#8 Magnificent Mile – minimum win betting odds 2 to 1
#10 Airtime – minimum win betting odds 3 to 1

Magnificent Mile looks ready to win at first asking, with a very sharp 47.6 half-mile drill from the gate five days
ago at Keeneland which was the fourth best of 29 on the day, and with exceptional breeding. He cost $800,000
at auction one year ago as he’s by exceptional sire Quality Road out of a mare which produced stakes winner
Brill, who won at first asking, as this colt appears capable of doing as well.

Airtime is another first time starter cut out to be a good won as his dam produced a multiple winner Exotic
West, who won at first asking. Sire American Freedom gets an average share of first out winners and this colt
ships in from Churchill Downs where he’s been working consistently for red hot trainer John Ortiz, with 10 wins
from just 33 starters at the meeting and having won with nearly 20% of his first time starters over the past two
