Hot times at Keeneland show


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Gusty tailwinds helped produce some blazing times Monday afternoon at the first under-tack show for Keeneland's April 16 select 2-year-old sale.

Hip No. 4, a Touch Gold filly consigned by agents Tony Bowling and Bobby Dodd, flew three-eighths in 32.80 seconds. Two horses posted eighth-mile times of 10 seconds. A Grand Slam-Starr County filly blitzed the fastest quarter-mile, in 20.80. She is offered by Niall Brennan, agent.

On the turf course, four young horses breezed an eighth in 10.20 seconds. The fastest quarter-mile time on turf was the 21-second work put up by Hip No. 186, a Theatrical-Halo River filly offered by Robert Scanlon, agent. The final under-tack show for the sale will take place Monday at Keeneland at 10:30 a.m.
