Undrafted will sprint 5 1/2 furlongs on turf in Friday's third race.

Undrafted, an earner of more than $1.3 million in a 28-race career, will make his 7-year-old debut Friday in the third race, a $77,000, classified allowance scheduled for 5 1/2 furlongs on turf. Joel Rosario has the call from Wesley Ward, who trains Undrafted for a partnership headed by retired NFL star Wes Welker.

◗ Keeneland is hosting a jockey autograph session prior to the Friday card. For a $10 donation to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund, fans can have items signed by many of the top jockeys to ride here, both active and retired. The session is set for 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. adjacent to the paddock walking ring.
