Helicopter in for........150k Stakes at Keeneland closing day on the lawn.

http://www.drf.com/race-entries/KEE/USA/2013-04-26/i

Unbelievable! I checked the entries and sure enough he's entered in the Fri Stakes race. 11 horses entered including Helicopter and he has to spot them all 5 Lbs - his 123 to their 118. Doesn't seem right.

Quick poll...over/under 99/1 final odds?

why is he carrying 123 lbs??

The Elkhorn conditions for weight allowance are:

"Weight: 123 lbs. Non-winners of Grade I stakes over ten furlongs on the turf since October 5, allowed 3 lbs.; a Grade I or II stakes over ten furlongs since July 4, 5 lbs".

I say neither. Supplemental poll ......... Does he run? I say it's 10/1 he does.

He hasn't won a stake on turf since then.

Don't be surprised if the horse runs well, King David comes to mind for a horse claimed off Rivelli to run huge after the claim

I agree. I would imagine that the connections have no interest in looking foolish.

I'm not making a prediction one way or he other. You guys know a lot more about it than I do. Just thought it was worth noting that he wasn't scratched. I still contend there is a chance he could go off north of 99/1 based on recent form.

I think you're right, if he does do anything it will be at a big price.

Looks like a lot of people have to eat crow! Helicopter had a banner year in 2014 with 8 starts 3 wins and about $73,000 in earnings. Not to many horses better than that in any Chicago Barn... and he won his first start in 2015! He will get tested in Arlington's 4th race on opening day by Gimmeadrink (another old timer) that Dale Bennett picked up for $6250 in February 2015. All he did in 2014 was win 7 of 11 starts for over $86,000! The story doesn't end there, he is 3 for 3 in 2015! This race is worth the price of admission. horse

Bennett's horses (especially recent claims) usually end up on my tickets.
