You are here

LEXINGTON, KY (July 28, 2017) – Thirty-nine Keeneland sales graduates are entered in North American graded stakes during a weekend of high-profile racing.

Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1) winner Always Dreaming and Preakness (G1) winner Cloud Computing, both graduates of Keeneland’s 2015 September Yearling Sale, make their highly anticipated summer debuts in Saturday’s Jim Dandy Presented by NYRA Bets (G2) at Saratoga. On the same race card, Keeneland-sold El Deal, winner of the Decathlon Stakes at Monmouth in June, and Grade 2 winner Ready for Rye highlight entries for the Alfred G. Vanderbilt (G1). At Del Mar, reigning champion sprinter Drefong, sold at both the November Breeding Stock and September Sales, makes his season debut in the Bing Crosby (G1), where he seeks an automatic berth to defend his title in the 2017 TwinSpires Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1).

On Sunday, three prominent Keeneland sales alumni – Grade 1 victor Practical Joke, winner of the Dwyer (G3) in his last start; undefeated back-to-back graded stakes winner Timeline and graded stakes winner Girvin – vie in the $1 million Betfair.com Haskell Invitational (G1) at Monmouth, a Win & You’re In race for the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1). At Del Mar, recent Santa Lucia Stakes winner Faithfully seeks a berth in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1) with a win in the Clement L. Hirsch (G1).
