Keeneland: Thurs. scratches, etc.


It's a little chillier than what it's been on most prior days of the 17-day Keeneland meet, with highs reaching into the high 60s (albeit with a nippy wind), as we get into card No. 10 today. The 9-race Thursday card is highlighted by the G3 Sycamore, a turf marathon that lost its defending champ, Cloudy's Knight, when the 10yo gelding was officially retired yesterday. Kudos to the old fella and his connections,  for sure ...

Fast Poly, firm turf, first post 1:15 Eastern. Here are the early scratches and changes:

Race 1 - SCR #1 Stormy Spirit; SCR #7 Pleasant Air

Race 2 - SCR #11 Dynatough

Race 4 - SCR #2 Vodel

Race 6 - SCR #2 Quick Delivery

Race 7 - SCR #7 Mesa Rose; SCR #8 Settling Seas

Race 8 - SCR #9 Cloudy's Knight
