This Saturday, Keeneland serves as the Last Chance Corral for potentially Derby-bound runners, as well as a place for emerging three-year-olds to test their mettle in graded company. Saturday’s card includes the final ten-point Derby prep, the Lexington Stakes (GIII).
For those who love Illinois-breds as much as I do, you’ll find one here: Yo Carm, a Tampa Bay Downs allowance winner who makes his first foray into stakes company. Alas, I think the waters are a bit too deep for him. Though I landed on a price horse (not Swipe! not Collected! not Synchrony!), he was bred in the Bluegrass, not the Prairie State.
