GRADED STAKES - 10/6 - Keeneland - Grade 1 Alcibiades

 

Race 8 Alcibiades 

1.Caroline the Great

2.Kelly's Humor

3.Bet She Wins

Today's opening day feature at Keeneland is the Alcibiades, and for some history on this former winner of the Kentucky Oaks ( who was named after a Greek orator ), please go to this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcibiades_(horse) --- The gal lived to be 30 !!  #3 CAROLINE THE GREAT put forth a career best effort on the Louisiana lawn in last, and what we like is the fact that if you solely went on breeding, it would have been easy to expect a regression from the dirt tries. Bullet breeze 17 days ago pops off the page, as does the 416 Tomlinson for today's routing distance. No routing siblings to report, and the dam never went long either, but sire won his only start going two turns, and grandsire's on both sides ( Harlan's Holiday & Tiznow ) were of course excellent when dancing this dance. Oh yeah---barn is 2 for 3 going turf to dirt, with the winners coming back a whopping $19 & $40. #7 KELLY'S HUMOR came along nicely to get 20% of the purse when going a legit two turns for the first time ( that mile at The Pea Patch is like a turn & a half ) and gets an upgrade to Castellano today. #6 BET SHE WINS is a January bred facing younger foes and enters off a monster number.
