March 24, 2017

LEXINGTON, KY (March 24, 2017) – More than 40 Keeneland sales graduates are entered in graded stakes on Dubai World Cup Day and across the U.S. on Saturday.

Keeneland sales graduates figure prominently in the $10 million Dubai World Cup (G1) at Meydan, led by champion 3-year-old colt and IFHA 2016 World’s Best Racehorse Arrogate, winner of the $12 million Pegasus World Cup (G1) in his season debut. Also featured in the Dubai World Cup are Keeneland sales graduates and Grade 1 winners Keen Ice and Hoppertunity.

Highlighting entries for the Dubai Golden Shaheen (G1) are Keeneland sales alumni Mind Your Biscuits, winner of the 2016 Malibu (G1), and veteran campaigner Reynaldothewizard, who won the 2013 edition of the Golden Shaheen. Recent OBS Championship (Colts and Geldings) winner and 2015 September Yearling Sale graduate Master Plan headlines the UAE Derby (G2), a prep on the Road to the Kentucky Derby (G1).  

Keeneland sales alumni dominate entries for two other Derby preps in the U.S. on Saturday, comprising seven of the 12 sophomores entered in both the Sunland Derby (G3) at Sunland Park and the Jack Cincinnati Casino Spiral (G3) at Turfway. Conquest Mo Money, undefeated in three starts including the recent Mine That Bird Derby and Riley Allison at Sunland Park, tops the field for the Sunland Derby. Among the 3-year-olds slated for the Spiral are Gold Rush winner Colonel Samsen and stakes-placed Parlor and Convict Pike
