Keeneland: Borel OK; A.Palmer here


As the 17-day Keeneland fall meet winds down, a 10-race Friday card on yet another postcard-perfect autumn afternoon has included a spill in which Calvin Borel escaped unhurt and golfing legend Arnold Palmer was among the attendees.

Borel, the 3-time-winning Ky-Derby jock, went down in a hurry when his 4th-race mount, Electric Alphabet, trained by brother Cecil, clipped heels when trying to make a move in the area of the quarter-pole. Calvin returned to polite applause and great relief at the mouth of the paddock runway when everyone realized he wasn't injured.

In the stands, meanwhile, Palmer, dressed in a Carolina blue jacket, was very much enjoying the day, signing autogrpahs and just having a good time taking in a sport other than golf.

In other notable ontrack action, $900k purchase Do It All (3-1) notched a maiden victory in the 6th when making his second start for Darley Stable and E.Harty, while Keep Up, a beautifully bred firster by Unbridled's Song out of Ky Oaks firster Keeper Hill, ran on late following a sluggish beginning to narrowly miss 2nd as the well-bet fave behind him.

Remember, mandatory end-of-meet jackpot payouts tomorrow when the stand ends, although there were no carryovers in either the $2 pick six nor the $1 super high 5 entering today.

The G2 Fayette, a good one, pulls down the curtain tomorrow. We'll be in early with the scratches and changes.
