Keeneland announces Fall Meet, Breeders' Cup undercard stakes

A total of six stakes will be contested on the two Breeders' Cup undercards at Keeneland

Keeneland will be the focus of the racing world in October when the track presents 23 stakes worth a total of $5,975,000 in purse money during its 2015 Fall Meet, to be held October 2-24, and the special three-day celebration, October 29-31, surrounding the $26 million Breeders' Cup World Championships.

Sixteen stakes, including six Grade 1 events highlighted by the $1 million Shadwell Turf Mile (G1), worth $5,075,000 are slated for the 17-day Fall Meet, which opens with the prestigious Fall Stars Weekend, October 2-4. Eight Fall Meet stakes are "Win and You're In" events, part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge series of automatic qualifying races for the Breeders' Cup.

As the host site for the 2015 Breeders' Cup, Keeneland has carded an additional seven stakes worth $900,000 -- one to be held October 29 and three scheduled for each of the Breeders' Cup undercards on October 30-31. The stakes are a mix of new and familiar names: $100,000 Lafayette for three-year-olds and up at seven furlongs on Thursday; the $200,000 Fayette (G2) for three-year-olds and up at 1 1/8 miles, which moves in 2015 from its traditional Fall Meet closing day spot to Friday and is joined by the $200,000 Marathon (G2) for three-year-olds and up at 1 3/4 miles and the $100,000 Bryan Station for three-year-olds at 1 1/8 miles on the turf; and on Saturday the $100,000 Fort Springs for three-year-old fillies, $100,000 Juvenile Dirt Sprint for two-year-olds, and $100,000 Perryville for three-year-olds, each at six furlongs.

"This fall will be one of the most memorable racing seasons in Keeneland history," said Keeneland Vice President of Racing W.B. Rogers Beasley. "The competition will be superb; the top trainers and jockeys will be on hand as the anticipation builds all month toward the first-ever Breeders' Cup at Keeneland. It will be an exciting time for fans, horsemen and the entire Central Kentucky community."

Keeneland's signature Fall Stars Weekend offers an exciting kick-off to the Fall Meet, when nine graded stakes worth $3.7 million. Five of those races are Grade 1 events. Opening day features the $400,000 Alcibiades (G1) for two-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles. The October 3 card includes the Shadwell Turf Mile for three-year-olds and up; $500,000 Breeders' Futurity for two-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles; and $400,000 First Lady (G1), for fillies and mares at a mile on turf. Racing on October 4 is led by the $500,000 Spinster (G1) for fillies and mares at 1 1/8 miles.

A sixth Grade 1 stakes, the $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1), an internationally renowned invitational for three-year-old fillies at 1 1/8 miles on the turf, will be held October 10.

The Fall Meet also reflects two changes to the stakes program. Purses for the Phoenix (G3) on October 2 and Thoroughbred Club of America (G2) on October 3 have increased from $200,000 to $250,000 each. Additionally, the $150,000 Valley View (G3), a 1 1/16-mile race on turf for three-year-old fillies, has been moved to closing day, October 24, for Fall Meet 2015.

NBC will broadcast live from Keeneland with two "Breeders' Cup Challenge Win and You're In Series" programs on October 3 (5-6 p.m. EDT) featuring the Breeders' Futurity and Shadwell Turf Mile and on October 4 (5-6 p.m.) with the Spinster and the Bourbon (G3), a turf race for two-year-olds.

The eighth Breeders' Cup Challenge race is the October 7 Jessamine (G3), which awards the winner a berth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1).

TicketResell available for Breeders' Cup

The Breeders' Cup Monday announced the return of TicketResell by SeatAdvisor, a ticketing feature that provides ticketholders more flexibility and security when selling and purchasing tickets for the Breeders' Cup World Championships. TicketResell is an online tool that allows patrons to resell tickets they can no longer use back to the Breeders' Cup primary ticket inventory. The Breeders' Cup, Thoroughbred racing's premier international event, will be held at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.

TicketResell was developed by SeatAdvisor, Inc., a global ticketing software company and the official box office software provider of the Breeders' Cup World Championships since 2008. This is the third consecutive year that the TicketResell program has been made available to Breeders' Cup patrons. With TicketResell, if patrons are no longer able to attend the event, they are now able to resell event tickets directly through their online account held with the Breeders' Cup. A desired resell price is set by the seller, and tickets are then added to the accessible inventory and made available for buyers.

All transactions are 100 percent secured and guaranteed by Breeders' Cup, unlike other secondary market resellers. Upon being sold, patrons are able to recoup the original cost of the tickets minus a minimal servicing fee.

"We understand that even after purchasing tickets some of our guests may not be able to attend, and other patrons may wish to purchase tickets for a section that is currently sold out," said Breeders' Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel. "TicketResell provides fans with a reasonable market for tickets in a secure location, which removes the risk of counterfeiting."

"TicketResell was engineered to equip our clients with the ability to securely assist patrons that can no longer use their tickets to an event," said Brent Miller, CEO of SeatAdvisor, Inc. "We are thrilled by the success Breeders' Cup has demonstrated using the feature over the past several years, as it reflects our mission to aide venues of all kinds in providing superior customer service to ticket buyers."

In addition to being more convenient and safe for patrons, the TicketResell technology helps the Breeders' Cup better manage ticket inventory. The event will also be more accessible as tickets that may go unused can be resold.

Fans interested selling their Breeders' Cup tickets or purchasing resold inventory through TicketResell may call 859-514-9428, M-F, 9-5 p.m. (EDT); email bctickets@breederscup.com or on the web at www.breederscup.com/tickets

Santa Anita sees attendance, handle rise

Santa Anita's 39-day Spring Meeting, which began on April 24, ended on Sunday with the track showing gains in both on-track attendance and overall pari-mutuel handle. Combined with its 68-day Winter Meet that ran from December 26 through April 19, on-track attendance was up 7 percent, overall mutuel handle was up 3 percent and total handle exceeded $1 billion for the second year in a row.

"First off, we want to sincerely thank our fans, owners, horsemen and our jockeys for a very successful meet," said Santa Anita Chairman Keith Brackpool. "We're very proud of the fact our turf course and main track again performed extremely well, which enabled us to consistently field a world- class product.

"We also want to thank Bob Baffert and his team for sharing America's newest Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile), so graciously with our fans and media ever since his arrival back here on June 18. We had a tremendous crowd here on Gold Cup Day of more than 21,000 people and many of them were here to see American Pharoah. Having a horse of this magnitude based here at Santa Anita is a great honor and we can't thank Bob enough for his generosity."

Santa Anita will re-open for live racing on September 26.

New Bay ruled out of Eclipse; Karpino misses Deutsches Derby

A clash of Derby winners Golden Horn (Cape Cross) and New Bay (Dubawi) in Saturday's Eclipse (Eng-G1) will not materialize after New Bay, the Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) (Fr-G1) winner, failed to satisfy trainer Andre Fabre in a work Monday.

"Andre Fabre has reported that New Bay did not work well enough this morning to justify going to Sandown for the Eclipse S.," said owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah's Racing Manager Teddy Grimthorpe. "He will now wait and look at the various other options."

New Bay's defection has left five in the Eclipse, with Golden Horn being the only three-year-old, and trainer John Gosden said the Anthony Oppenheimer colorbearer worked well on the weekend.

"Frankie (Dettori) was thrilled with his work on Saturday morning," the conditioner told At The Races. "He did a lovely seven furlongs on the watered gallop with a good older horse rated 118 and he skipped clear of him. He's in good order and at the moment, touch wood, he's going the right way."

The four others remaining in the Eclipse are Golden Horn's stablemate Western Hymn (High Chaparral); dual Group 1 winner The Grey Gatsby (Mastercraftsman); the Aidan O'Brien-trained Cougar Mountain (Fastnet Rock); and Andrew Balding's Tullius (Le Vie Dei Colori).

In another disappointing bulletin, Qatar Racing's unbeaten Mehl-Mulhens-Rennen (German Two Thousand Guineas) (Ger-G2) winner Karpino (Cape Cross) has been ruled out of Sunday's Deutsches Derby (Ger-G1) after sustaining an injury Monday.

Trainer Andreas Wohler said he thinks the injury is not serious, but was unable to give a timeline for the colt's return to the races. Karpino is also entered in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. (Eng-G1) at Ascot July 25.

"We've taken him out of the German Derby," Wohler confirmed. "He had an injury this morning. It's nothing serious, hopefully, and we'll see. We'll just have to see how everything works. It's hard to say if he will make Ascot. We'll have to see how the next couple of days are."

In brief

American Pharoah looked good in his first work since the Belmont (Cecilia Gustavsson/Horsephotos.com)
American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) worked three furlongs in :36 2/5 at Santa Anita Monday, recording his first move since sweeping the elusive Triple Crown in the June 6 Belmont S. (G1). Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has yet to announce the next start for the Zayat Stables homebred, who is likely to conclude his racing career in the October 31 Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) at Keeneland...

Presque Isle Downs canceled its entire live racing card Monday due to ongoing safety concerns with the local deer population's infiltrating the racetrack. This marks the third time in the past week that the Erie, Pennsylvania, course has lost races because of the deer situation. Last Monday, racing was canceled after the 3RD race, and the program was called off after the 4TH race on Sunday. The Blood-Horse's Tom LaMarra reports that Presque Isle officials and the Pennsylvania Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association are seeking instructions from the Pennsylvania Game Commission as well as the commonwealth's Department of Agriculture on how to proceed...

Having got the better of last year's Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere (Fr-G1) winner Full Mast (Mizzen Mast) when in receipt of seven pounds from that rival in the Prix Paul de Moussac (Fr-G3) over a mile here last time June 6, Almanaar (Dubawi) continued his purple patch with a well-judged all-the-way effort over an extra furlong in Monday's Prix Daphnis (Fr-G3). Third in the Prix de Suresnes over this trip at Maisons-Laffitte April 17, the chestnut had annexed the Prix de Pontarme reverting to a mile at Saint-Cloud May 18 prior to his battling display in the Paul de Moussac. Placed straight on to the lead by Thierry Jarnet, the homebred clearly had the measure of his rivals at the top of the stretch and, with his generous style of galloping, put himself beyond the reach of Mostaneer (Dutch Art). "Earlier in the season, I didn't think he'd do this well but he's been improving with every race and is now a top performer," trainer Freddy Head commented. "I trained the dam (Baqah), who was very good so it is especially pleasing for me. As he's a gelding, Group 1 racing is a little difficult at this stage but there are plenty of races anyway. He's been on the go since early in the season, so he deserves a little break and it could be that he comes back for the Prix Quincey ([Fr-G3] at Deauville August 30) or maybe the Prix Guillaume d'Ornano ([Fr-G2] August 15) if I want to stretch him out to a mile and a quarter."...

After an impressive maiden score at Bordeaux-le-Bouscat April 5, Wekeela (Hurricane Run) finished runner-up to the subsequent Prix de Sandringham (Fr-G2) winner Impassable (Invincible Spirit) in a mile conditions event at Chantilly May 2 before being brushed aside by the high-class Queen's Jewel (Pivotal) when in the same spot in the G1 Prix Saint-Alary (Fr-G1) over 10 furlongs at Longchamp May 24. Entitled to win Monday's Prix Chloe (Fr-G3) at Chantilly on that form, the bay duly ultimately delivered with a degree of comfort after giving favorite-backers a temporary scare. Settled despite having no cover out wide in fifth early, she was being asked a question by Jean-Bernard Eyquem approaching the quarter pole and needed a couple of reminders to pick up. Responding by unleashing a surge to gain the lead passing the furlong marker, she asserted to score with authority in the end as her stamina kicked in...

Campaigned in Italy so far, Fly On the Night (Equiano) underlined the continued strength of that country's beleaguered racing program by beating the French in one of the first of the main sprint tests for the juveniles, Monday's Prix du Bois (Fr-G3) at Chantilly. Cutting her teeth in the June 2 Premio Alessandro Perrone over 5 1/2 furlongs at the Capannelle, the bay was quickly up to dispute the early lead as Umberto Rispoli sought to use her natural pace to full effect. When asked to stretch inside the last quarter-mile, she responded instantly and readily held Tourny (Country Reel) in the run to the line. "She had won well twice in Italy with very fast times on both occasions and was due to run again in a six-furlong race in Rome, but we thought that might be too far for her and with the uncertainty about the racing there we preferred to send her here," owner Pietro Sinistri explained. "She has been staying with Mr Botti in Chantilly, which is a lovely place for training horses. She won very well there, showing her speed and class again and we will keep her in Chantilly now and train her from here for the Prix Robert Papin ([Fr-G2] at Maisons-Laffitte July 26)."...

An abundance of early speed might help former Canadian champion three-year-old Pender Harbour (Philanthropist) make a significant impact in Wednesday's C$150,000 Dominion Day (Can-G3) over 1 1/4 miles on Woodbine's Polytrack. The seven-year-old gelding successfully rallied to take his third Steady Growth S. going 1 1/16 miles June 6, and the dual classic winner will attempt to improve on his runner-up finish in this event three years ago. The 7-5 morning line favorite, Hawthorne Gold Cup (G2) winner Red Rifle (Giant's Causeway), is one-for-two over synthetic tracks, but shares a similar front-running style as recent Evangeline Mile winner Mystery Train (Not for Sale), 2013 Queen's Plate winner Midnight Aria (Midnight Lute) and the allowance-class Smooth Stone (Giant's Causeway). Multiple Grade 2-placed Patrioticandproud (Proud Citizen) enters off a course-and-distance allowance victory, won in wire-to-wire fashion, while Ontario Derby (Can-G3) hero Florida Won (Birdstone) might improve in his second start of the year for Mark Casse. Earlier in the card, 2014 Bessarabian (Can-G2) winner Hillaby (Distorted Humor) will make her season debut in the C$100,000 Sweet Briar Too over seven furlongs. Her most serious rival in Unspurned (Lemon Drop Kid), who captured the Whimsical (Can-G3) before finishing third in the Hendrie (Can-G3) and second in the Trillium this year...

Friday's $150,000 Molly Pitcher (G3) at Monmouth Park, for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles, features a rematch between Stiffed (Stephen Got Even) and Got Lucky (A.P. Indy), the one-two finishers in the $97,000 Monmouth Beach on May 24. On that day, Stiffed rallied from 10 lengths back to post a 34-1 upset by a half-length over Got Lucky, a multiple Grade 2-placed four-year-old who was among the betting favorites. Also among the field of seven is Shayjolie (Indian Charlie), a stakes winner at Aqueduct in March who has gone unplaced in two starts since finishing a narrowly-beaten third in the Top Flight H. (G3)...

Zia Park has released its stakes schedule for its 11th season of live racing beginning on September 12. The 56-day meet will be highlighted by the third annual Land of Enchantment Day on November 25 and New Mexico Cup Day on November 1. Zia Park will host 33 stakes races in 2015 for Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses with total purses of almost $4 million. Land of Enchantment Day on Thanksgiving Eve will feature eight stakes races worth a total of more than $1.2 million. The richest event of that afternoon will be the third running of the $300,000 Zia Park Oaks for three-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles, won by the Larry Jones-trained Cassatt (Tapit) in 2014. The card will also feature the $200,000 Zia Park Derby for three-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles, the $150,000 Zia Park Championship for three-year-olds and up at 1 1/8 miles, the $100,000 (up from $75,000) Zia Park Distaff for fillies and mares at six furlongs, the $140,000 Eddy County Stakes for two-year-old New Mexico-breds at one mile and the newly created $100,000 Zia Park Sprint for three-year-olds and up contested at six furlongs. Zia Park will host the richest day of state-bred stakes races in the country on New Mexico Cup Day on November 1st with 12 stakes races for New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses totaling more than $2 million in purses. Racing will take place at Zia Park from September 12 to December 15 on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, as well as Wednesday, November 25. Post time for the first race each day will be at 12:15 p.m. (MT).

"I trained the dam (Baqah), who was very good so it is especially pleasing for me. As he's a gelding, Group 1 racing is a little difficult at this stage but there are plenty of races anyway. He's been on the go since early in the season, so he deserves a little break and it could be that he comes back for the Prix Quincey ([Fr-G3] at Deauville August 30) or maybe the Prix Guillaume d'Ornano ([Fr-G2] August 15) if I want to stretch him out to a mile and a quarter."...

After an impressive maiden score at Bordeaux-le-Bouscat April 5, Wekeela (Hurricane Run) finished runner-up to the subsequent Prix de Sandringham (Fr-G2) winner Impassable (Invincible Spirit) in a mile conditions event at Chantilly May 2 before being brushed aside by the high-class Queen's Jewel (Pivotal) when in the same spot in the G1 Prix Saint-Alary (Fr-G1) over 10 furlongs at Longchamp May 24. Entitled to win Monday's Prix Chloe (Fr-G3) at Chantilly on that form, the bay duly ultimately delivered with a degree of comfort after giving favorite-backers a temporary scare. Settled despite having no cover out wide in fifth early, she was being asked a question by Jean-Bernard Eyquem approaching the quarter pole and needed a couple of reminders to pick up. Responding by unleashing a surge to gain the lead passing the furlong marker, she asserted to score with authority in the end as her stamina kicked in...

Campaigned in Italy so far, Fly On the Night (Equiano) underlined the continued strength of that country's beleaguered racing program by beating the French in one of the first of the main sprint tests for the juveniles, Monday's Prix du Bois (Fr-G3) at Chantilly. Cutting her teeth in the June 2 Premio Alessandro Perrone over 5 1/2 furlongs at the Capannelle, the bay was quickly up to dispute the early lead as Umberto Rispoli sought to use her natural pace to full effect. When asked to stretch inside the last quarter-mile, she responded instantly and readily held Tourny (Country Reel) in the run to the line. "She had won well twice in Italy with very fast times on both occasions and was due to run again in a six-furlong race in Rome, but we thought that might be too far for her and with the uncertainty about the racing there we preferred to send her here," owner Pietro Sinistri explained. "She has been staying with Mr Botti in Chantilly, which is a lovely place for training horses. She won very well there, showing her speed and class again and we will keep her in Chantilly now and train her from here for the Prix Robert Papin ([Fr-G2] at Maisons-Laffitte July 26)."...

An abundance of early speed might help former Canadian champion three-year-old Pender Harbour (Philanthropist) make a significant impact in Wednesday's C$150,000 Dominion Day (Can-G3) over 1 1/4 miles on Woodbine's Polytrack. The seven-year-old gelding successfully rallied to take his third Steady Growth S. going 1 1/16 miles June 6, and the dual classic winner will attempt to improve on his runner-up finish in this event three years ago. The 7-5 morning line favorite, Hawthorne Gold Cup (G2) winner Red Rifle (Giant's Causeway), is one-for-two over synthetic tracks, but shares a similar front-running style as recent Evangeline Mile winner Mystery Train (Not for Sale), 2013 Queen's Plate winner Midnight Aria (Midnight Lute) and the allowance-class Smooth Stone (Giant's Causeway). Multiple Grade 2-placed Patrioticandproud (Proud Citizen) enters off a course-and-distance allowance victory, won in wire-to-wire fashion, while Ontario Derby (Can-G3) hero Florida Won (Birdstone) might improve in his second start of the year for Mark Casse. Earlier in the card, 2014 Bessarabian (Can-G2) winner Hillaby (Distorted Humor) will make her season debut in the C$100,000 Sweet Briar Too over seven furlongs. Her most serious rival in Unspurned (Lemon Drop Kid), who captured the Whimsical (Can-G3) before finishing third in the Hendrie (Can-G3) and second in the Trillium this year...

Friday's $150,000 Molly Pitcher (G3) at Monmouth Park, for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles, features a rematch between Stiffed (Stephen Got Even) and Got Lucky (A.P. Indy), the one-two finishers in the $97,000 Monmouth Beach on May 24. On that day, Stiffed rallied from 10 lengths back to post a 34-1 upset by a half-length over Got Lucky, a multiple Grade 2-placed four-year-old who was among the betting favorites. Also among the field of seven is Shayjolie (Indian Charlie), a stakes winner at Aqueduct in March who has gone unplaced in two starts since finishing a narrowly-beaten third in the Top Flight H. (G3)...

Zia Park has released its stakes schedule for its 11th season of live racing beginning on September 12. The 56-day meet will be highlighted by the third annual Land of Enchantment Day on November 25 and New Mexico Cup Day on November 1. Zia Park will host 33 stakes races in 2015 for Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses with total purses of almost $4 million. Land of Enchantment Day on Thanksgiving Eve will feature eight stakes races worth a total of more than $1.2 million. The richest event of that afternoon will be the third running of the $300,000 Zia Park Oaks for three-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles, won by the Larry Jones-trained Cassatt (Tapit) in 2014. The card will also feature the $200,000 Zia Park Derby for three-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles, the $150,000 Zia Park Championship for three-year-olds and up at 1 1/8 miles, the $100,000 (up from $75,000) Zia Park Distaff for fillies and mares at six furlongs, the $140,000 Eddy County Stakes for two-year-old New Mexico-breds at one mile and the newly created $100,000 Zia Park Sprint for three-year-olds and up contested at six furlongs. Zia Park will host the richest day of state-bred stakes races in the country on New Mexico Cup Day on November 1st with 12 stakes races for New Mexico-bred Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses totaling more than $2 million in purses. Racing will take place at Zia Park from September 12 to December 15 on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, as well as Wednesday, November 25. Post time for the first race each day will be at 12:15 p.m. (MT).
