Turfway Park / Jeff Ruby Steaks Day



Race#7 – The $200,000 Latonia Stakes – 1 1/16 – 3:43 pm

#7 – Skygaze (3-1) = Hails from the Mark Casse barn with Chris Landeros in the saddle. Casse ships in from Woodbine where he is a synthetic wizard. This daughter of American Pharoah is a perfect 2/2 at TP, and the barn wins 20% with Tapeta runners. They cut back in distance and should come in fresh and ready to roll with a stout late kick.


Race#8 – The $200,000 Rushaway – 1 1/16 – 4:13 pm

#12 – Erase (3-1) = Joe Talamo in the saddle for Brad Cox, and this speedy son of Dialed In goes back to Talamo and had sharp work to prepare. Dangerous as the Cox barn is winning 27% for the meet.


Race#9 – The $200,000 Animal Kingdom – 6f – 4:43 pm


#4 – Hoist the Gold (2-1) = Dallas Stewart and Brian Hernandez Jr. hook up and make a third off the break effort. This son of Mineshaft is a stalker and should be in the right spot turning for home under Hernandez.


Race#10 – The $250,000 Kentucky Cup Classic – 1 1/8 – 5:13 pm


#3 – King Fury (4-1) = This son of Curlin has been off four months, but working stoutly for Ken McPeek and B.J. Hernandez Jr. He fires fresh off the shelf and the barn wins 22% with non-graded stakes. Look for a late run around the far turn to find a good position.


Race#11 – The $250,000 Bourbette Oaks – 1 1/16 – 5:43 pm


#8 – Sandstone (5-2) = Speedy daughter of Street Sense for Ken McPeek and B.J. Hernandez. Comes off a four-month break and drops down in class today. A speedy gal who be ultra dangerous if left alone on the front end. – McPeek wins 22% with non-graded stakes.


Race#12 – The $600,000 Jeff Ruby Steaks – 1 1/8 – 6:43 pm


#12 – Black Adder (15-1) = Edwin Maldonado in the saddle for Rudy Brisset. This son of Quality Road won the El Camino Real Derby flying down the lane. He has plenty of pace to set him up and Maldonado is known for not getting a horse too far back in the field. – Use with: #2 – Stolen Base and #3 – Cabo Spirit. 


Best of luck on the Jeff Ruby card, and it is only a few more days and Kentucky will shift tack to Keeneland.
