If TARIS stays healthy, she will be one of the best filly and mare sprinters of 2015. She's already one of the best in training this year. If you don't believe me, take a look at what she did to the field in last Saturday's Grade 2 Lexus Raven Run Stakes at Keeneland.

Weather permitting, there are a couple of nice turf stakes races at Keeneland over the next two days. On Thursday, long-distance runners take center stage in the Grade 3 Sycamore at 1 1/2 miles. The morning line favorite is #9 UNITARIAN, a Pulpit colt trained by Todd Pletcher that won his most recent start over this course and distance. Simple, right? Not so fast.

Thanks to everyone that entered the FormBlog Breeders' Cup Fantasy Handicapping League. We had 489 contestants. KYL syndicate was the winner with 2310 fantasy earnings and finished second overall in the global leaderboard. It was a tremendous effort. *** Todd Pletcher's 2-year-olds made serious noise last Saturday with Grade 1 victories from DAREDEVIL in the Champagne at Belmont and CARPE DIEM in the Breeders' Futurity at Keeneland.
