LEXINGTON, KY (Aug. 18, 2017) – Keeneland sales graduates comprise five of the eight talented entries in Saturday’s $1 million TVG Pacific Classic (G1) at Del Mar. Four are alumni of the September Yearling Sale: champion and morning-line favorite Arrogate; TVG San Diego (G2) winner Accelerate; Californian (G2) and Precisionist (G3) winner Collected and Cougar II (G3) winner Curlin Road. Another entrant is multiple graded stakes-placed Donworth, sold as a horse of racing age at the November Breeding Stock Sale. The TVG Pacific Classic is a Breeders’ Cup Challenge race with the winner securing a berth in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) on Nov. 4 at Del Mar.

On the same card, Keeneland sales are represented in the Del Mar Oaks (G1) by Keeneland-based Con Te Partiro, winner of the Sandringham Handicap at England’s Royal Ascot in her last start, and multiple graded stakes-placed Vexatious and Pacific Wind

Graduates of the 2015 September Sale highlight the field for the Alabama (G1) on Saturday at Saratoga. Belmont Oaks Invitational (G1) winner New Money Honey makes her dirt debut in the Alabama, where she will face recent Delaware Oaks (G3) winner It Tiz Well.
