We’re off and running on Wednesday with two racing cards covered on the dirt and turf. BetOnline has a handful of racecourses available for wagering. The most notable of the tracks is in Lexington at Keeneland. Keeneland doesn’t have much competition this afternoon. It’s the only big named track racing on the Wednesday card.
Keeneland is home to the biggest race this weekend with a $500,000 Grade 1 event. The running of the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup is expected to go on Saturday in Lexington. There are several other options on the racetrack, so we’ll take a look at Penn National in Pennsylvania as well.
If you are looking for Keeneland, then check out our Keeneland page. Penn National is offering eight races with $120,300 in prize money available. Head below for our free Penn National Race Course picks for October 13, 2021.

Distance:5 ½ Furlongs
Race 1 is a 5 ½ furlong event for a $18,100 purse on Wednesday evening. Purely Silver and Jeanetteo are the ones to watch in this one.
Purely Silver is winless as a first-time runner, coming up in 5th on September 22 for a $17,000 assignment. She was on the rail throughout that one and wasn’t able to take advantage.
It appeared like Purely Silvery pulled up and stopped. She wasn’t interested in going in her first race. That said, Purely Silvery should have a better attempt on Wednesday in her second race.
Jeanetteo has finished 2nd and 4th in her two-race career. As a first-timer, Jeanetteo placed 2nd behind Bazinga C by 8 ½ lengths in a $27,100 event. A bit too tough, but still beat six foes.
In her most recent outing, Jeanetteo finished 4th in a $27,100 assignment on September 24. This was another acceptable run for her, but got tired late and fell from 2nd to 4th in the stretch.
Jeanetteo is seeing a class drop and half furlong drop in distance on Wednesday. She looks like the top contender.
Post Time: 6:52 p.m. EST
Race 3 is a 6-furlong event for a $11,800 purse on the dirt. Super Belle and Bali should be the ones to watch closely.
Super Belle is a two-time winner in 12 assignments, with a win on May 19 and July 27. In her first win in the spring, Super Belle beat Our Nikki L by a half length for a $17,000 purse.
Super Belle went winless following that race for two races, but struck again on July 27 for a 4 ¼ length win over Queen’s Dream in a $14,400 race.
She most recently showed 3rd in a $11,800 event on September 24. That wasn’t too encouraging, but she is capable of better. Bali should provide a scare from the outside.
Bali is a two-time winner in 20 assignments since 2018. She’s finished 2nd, 5th, 8th in her previous three attempts, placing 2nd on July 28 for a $19,100 purse by 3 lengths against Afandi.
She tailed off following that effort, most recently going 8th in a $28,000 event. This race represents a big class drop to $11,800.
Her workouts have been in order, recently completing an electric 4-furlong workout of 46.70 seconds at 4 furlongs. All of the value is going with Bali in this race.
Post Time: 7:18 p.m. EST
The fourth race at Penn National covers 6 furlongs on the dirt for a $28,900 purse. Expect Jebologist and Free Enterprise to come up with big runs. Both should be featured in the stretch run.
Jebologist is 2 for 16 in his career, and has finished 3rd, 2nd, 2nd, 4th, 2nd in his previous five attempts. He’s been getting close, but the door keeps getting closed on his face.
In Jebologist’s latest outing, he placed 2nd behind Souper Catch by 6 ¾ lengths for a $28,900 purse. Good, but not good enough to get into the fray with top runners. That could be the case again on Wednesday evening.
Free Enterprise is 4 for 13 in his career, finishing 1st, 1st, 3rd in her previous three outings. He was a back-to-back winner in a $57,000 race by a neck, and then a head win over Flat Out Beautiful for a $60,000 purse at Belmont Park.
After primarily running at Saratoga and Belmont Park, Free Enterprise took a transfer to Penn National. The $485,000 gelding looks much too good for this field.
