I make no secret of the fact that I love long races. This weekend at Keeneland, the long-winded grass horses get the chance to shine in the Grade II Elkhorn Stakes, which I preview over at Picks and Ponderings.
The race drew a solid field of eight. Among those eight, there are two who stand out in my eyes. One has been a mainstay in classy races here for years…but one of the newer shooters also got a very long look, and will be getting my win money.
