Kee: Fri. scratches, etc.


Lots of activity here this morning, as Univ. of Ky. b'ball coach J.Calipari was here before 8 a.m. to sign 1,200 limited-edition Maker's Mark bottles. Quite the giddy mob here to see the coach . . .

Speaking of the Maker's Mark, that'll be our feature today on an afternoon when the high temp is supposed to near 60, with mostly sunny skies. All in all, a nice day. There are no scratches in the G1 $300k Maker's Mark Mile (race 9), which goes at 5:05 ET. Court Vision (#6) is the 6/5 fave with R.Albarado to ride.

A Maker's Mark reminder, and something we neglected to have (I didn't remember and never saw a Kee release . . . oh well) in any of our editorial copy this week in the DRF: There is a two-day Daily Double linking the MMMile and the Blue Grass tomorrow. So, as to avoid confusion, there is no late Daily Double (races 9-10) today to end the Friday card.

Four days into KeeSpring'10, trainer T.Proctor is having a nice meet. He won the nightcap Wed. and Thurs., with the Thurs. winner, Queen of the Creek ($9, G.Gomez) looking particularly good. A future stakes horse, she.

A fast Poly and firm turf for the 10-race Fri. card, which starts at 1:05 ET and has only a few early changes. Good luck today.
