Kee: Sat. scratches


A beautiful Blue Grass S. day, with sunny skies and temps nearing 70 later today. We should have about 25,000 or more mobbing the joint today.

A game win by Karelian yesterday in the G1 MMMile, meaning he now has beaten Gio Ponti and Court Vision in his 2 starts this year. Not bad for an old fella.

Kee announced last nite that an off-track outlet or outlets didn't close in time for wagering on the MMMile/Blue Grass double and therefore the track has not yet released will-pays on the two-day wager. The track said an investigation has determined that the impact on the overall pool was "minimal" and that officials have been working with simulcast partners to ID tickets that need to be removed from the pool. Will-pays will be available later today.

Only a few early scratches today on an 11-race card, none in the G1 BG, which is more wide-open wagering-wise than any I've seen, and my first was Spectacular Bid in 1979. Maybe a fave in the 7-2 range. Fast Poly and firm turf, and we'll start things off at 1:05 ET. Good luck today.
