Turf Paradise: Apprentice gets her first triple


Apprentice Lori Keith, 23, had her first three-win day Sunday at Turf Paradise. She brought home consecutive winners Uncle Ed ($7.80) in the sixth and Ratifier ($15) in the seventh. She capped her day by taking the nightcap with AKA Quickdraw ($7). Keith, from England, came right back Monday to score a wire-to-wire upset in the fifth race with Point Me the Way ($27.20).

* The WinStar Derby and Sunland Oaks were the focal points of last Sunday's card at Sunland Park, but Phoenix-area owner Don Heim had a good day there himself. He shipped Genes Boy there for the $100,000 New Mexico Breeders Derby, and the 3-year-old came away with the upset victory, paying $33.

* As part of Ladies Day on Saturday, April 21, Turf Paradise will host a postrace concert by Davy Jones of the Monkees. Jones, also a Thoroughbred owner, is expected to ship one of his horses in for a race that day.
