With a return to a dirt racing surface, Keeneland was quickly handed the BC event. Top horseman no longer have to "try" their best dirt horses on synthetic and hope they will handle it. Now they flock to this 16 day race meet to showcase their best horses. Outside of Saratoga, this is probably as good as it gets. Opening day is Friday (4/8) and will operate a Wednesday through Sunday race week with closing day Friday 4/29. Big fields and quality racing is always a treat to handicap:>) Here's a look at some of the racing action, even allowance races bring out stars. TJ

No love for Thirteen Arrows in the Madison?
Track and Distance winner, with one of the nation's hottest jocks in the irons and a perfect outside draw ... Competitive speed figures to boot (can run the par.) Working great, too.

This is a fantastic race. Another reason why I like Keeneland most of all! (Along with Saratoga and Woodbine.)

Here's the finish:
Shakhimat...ran an eye popping race today going wire to wire. Should set him up perfectly to win Canada's oldest race, The Queen's Plate! Real nice horse as you thought, Cree:>)
J R's Holiday...finished well for the place.
Inspector Lynley...3rd by a nose over,
Converge...4th.

I thought he may need a race, but I was wrong. Nice win by this colt, he looks like a serious horse for the Queens Plate :-)
