Blue Grass: Art Collector Overtakes Filly Swiss Skydiver - Posted on: July 12, 2020

By Richard Rosenblatt Art Collector came through with a masterpiece in the $600,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G2) at Keeneland on Saturday, rolling past the filly Swiss Skydiver near the eighth-pole and cruising to a 3 ½-length victory. Sent off as the second choice just behind slight favorite Swiss Skydiver, Art Collector stamped himself as a Kentucky Derby (G1) contender by earning 100 qualifying points to move onto the leaderboard at No. 4. The 3-year-old colt extended his winning streak to three in a row and prevented Swiss Skydiver from becoming the first filly to win the 1 1/8-mile Blue

Swiss Skydiver Attempts to Become 1st Filly to Win Blue Grass - Posted on: July 10, 2020

By Margaret Ransom Peter Callaghan’s multiple Grade 2-winning filly Swiss Skydiver was among the 13 names dropped into Keeneland’s entry box for Saturday’s $600,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G2) and she was promptly made the 3-1 morning line favorite in her first starts against the opposite sex. Swiss Skydiver’s conditioner, Kenny McPeek, also trains the promising Ashland Stakes (G1) contender Envoutante and had expressed his intent to keep the two fillies apart as long as possible. So with Swiss Skydiver riding a three-race win streak that includes the Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2), Fantasy Stakes (G2) and Santa Anita Oaks (G1),

Dunbar Road the Star Attraction in Underappreciated Delaware ‘Cap - Posted on: July 10, 2020

By Mike Farrell The ways and wiles of the graded stakes committee are sometimes inscrutable to mere mortals. The rationale for some races holding exalted positions with others suffering ignominious downgrades is frequently hard to fathom. A case in point: the 83rd renewal of the $400,000 Delaware Handicap (G2) for fillies and mares on Saturday at Delaware Park. The feature event at the charming track located outside Wilmington was a Grade 1 stakes until 2018 when it was knocked down a peg. A downgrade is certainly in order if a race fails to attract top-level runners. That didn’t happen here.

Eddie Mac’s Book: Gambling as It’s Meant to Be at Keeneland - Posted on: July 9, 2020

By Ed McNamara The slogan is “Racing as It Was Meant to Be,” and on a chilly April morning or a warm October afternoon, there’s no better place in the world for a racing fan. Even though none are there in the July heat, it’s comforting to see them running again at Keeneland. Unfortunately, life in 2020 is far from “Existence as It Was Meant to Be,” and Keeneland’s spring meeting became a casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic. A month of the year’s best racing was wiped out, but some payback came this week, when the central Kentucky showplace is

Atlanta-Manchego Turning Into Quite the Harness Racing Rivalry - Posted on: July 8, 2020

By John Furgele The rivalry between Atlanta and Manchego is becoming more and more intriguing in the harness racing world, with last weekend’s showdown in the Arthur J. Cutler Memorial Trot at the Meadowlands a humdinger. In all likelihood, these two talented mares will meet a bunch more times. There’s summer stakes races to plan for, the Breeders Crown and the TVG Free-for-All, and hopefully plenty more duels down the road for these two stars. The $170,900 Arthur J. Cutler, run with limited spectators on the grounds on July 4, was won by Atlanta, the 2018 Hambletonian champion in a

Swiss Skydiver Taking Plunge Against Boys in Blue Grass Stakes - Posted on: July 8, 2020

By Richard Rosenblatt Why not? The top 3-year-old filly Swiss Skydiver is set to take on the boys in the $600,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G2) at Keeneland on Saturday in a 13-horse field vying for key qualifying points for the Kentucky Derby (G1). Swiss Skydiver has risen to the top of the heap in her division with three straight graded-stakes wins, and would become the second filly to run in the 1 1/8-mile Blue Grass since the track’s opening spring meet in 1937. Harriet Sue finished fifth in the 1944 Blue Grass. Trainer Ken McPeek also was considering the

Unique Del Mar Season is Upon Us - Posted on: July 8, 2020

By Margaret Ransom The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s 2020 summer race meet gets underway on Friday (July 10), and will operate for the first time on a three-day-a-week race schedule. It’ll be racing on Friday through Sunday, down from the five- and six-day seasons held in previous years.

Handicapping Tips for a Winning Week at Keeneland - Posted on: July 7, 2020

By Noel Michaels Blink and you’ll miss it. While horseplayers look forward to the start of the big summer meets at Saratoga and Del Mar in the next week or two, we all will be treated to a special bonus week of top-class racing at the unlikeliest of summer venues – Keeneland. Keeneland’s special one-week summer meet will run five days from July 8-12. By running this brief meet, Keeneland will manage to salvage 10 of its original 15 spring graded stakes races. That’s amazing when you consider the five-day meet will probably run a total of only about 55-60
