LEXINGTON, KY (March 22, 2013) – Keeneland sales graduates Uncaptured and Pure Fun, each making their 2013 debuts, headline Turfway’s Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes (G3) and Fathead Bourbonette Oaks (G3), respectively, on Saturday. Eight of the 12 three-year-olds comprising a deep field in the Spiral, a prep race worth 50 points to the winner on the Road to the Kentucky Derby (G1), are Keeneland sales alumni, including Grade 2 winner Balance the Books and the talented Capo Bastone. Pure Fun, winner of the Hollywood Starlet (G1) in her last start, is among six Keeneland sales grads entered in the Bourbonette, each seeking points on the Road to the Kentucky Oaks (G1).

Other prominent Keeneland sales alumni showcased this weekend are: two-time Grade 1 winner Lady of Shamrock, who opens her four-year-old campaign in the Santa Ana Stakes (G2); Grade 2 stakes winner Twilight Eclipse, high weight in the Pan American Stakes (G2); and 2011 Belmont (G1) winner Ruler On Ice, entered in the Excelsior Stakes (G3)
