Prestigious Shadwell Turf Mile features higher purse, unique trophy
Winning a Grade 1 stakes race at a track like Keeneland is a special accomplishment for any owner. But the Shadwell Turf Mile (G1) on October 6 offers two other enticing elements.
First, the purse has been raised to $750,000 – highest of any race on the Fall Stars Weekend lineup and equal to the spring meet’s signature event, the Toyota Blue Grass (G1). And beyond the added cash is a unique keepsake to mark the achievement for the winning owner.
