May 14, 2018

Keeneland September Yearling Sale alumnus Blended Citizen earned a berth in the Belmont (G1) at Belmont Park with a late rally to win the Peter Pan (G3) at the same track on Saturday. On the same race card, Kirby’s Penny took advantage of an off track to capture the Vagrancy (G3) for her second consecutive win following an allowance victory at Keeneland on April 6. At Arlington, Matrooh won the Hanshin Cup (G3) by 2½ lengths with a late surge that took him from last to first place.
