The Spinmeister looks set to handle mile in Ky Alta


A group of 3-year-olds will take their first serious step toward the Grade 3, $200,000 Canadian Derby when they run in the $50,000 Ky Alta Handicap at Northlands on Saturday. The one-mile Ky Alta is the first middle-distance stakes at Northlands this year and should help identify which local 3-year-olds will be moving forward toward the 1 3/8-mile Canadian Derby on Aug. 21.
