Pleuven back from long layoff in Thursday turf feature


LEXINGTON, Ky. – After more than a week of ideal spring weather in the bluegrass region, forecasters are calling for a good possibility of rain Thursday and Friday. If the three races carded for grass Thursday at Keeneland are forced onto the main track, Phil Sims isn’t sure whether he’d go ahead and cinch up a racing saddle on an interesting 5-year-old named Pleuven, one of the contenders in the nominal feature, a $67,000 classified allowance at one mile.
