Keystone Rodeo is hands down the top choice in today’s $20,000 Open Handicap Pace. I know Quality Western has won four straight Open Paces at the Downs, and remains a solid contender, but he faces probably his toughest assignment to date in the Rodeo. Trained by Kevin Lare, Keystone Rodeo invades Pocono after a very good showing in the Levy Pacing Series at Yonkers. The 7-year-old Western Hanover stallion won twice during the series and was a fast-closing third in the $475,000 Levy Final to one of the sharpest half-mile pacers in the business in Maltese Artist. Driver Tim Tetrick, who is coming off another spectacular Friday afternoon, remains at the controls and will find one way or another to control Keystone Rodeo to the winner’s circle in the 10th race feature.
