Starting next week, one of the most prestigious tracks in the country will begin hosting one of the most important meets of the season. The Keeneland Fall stakes calendar is packed with nine events that grant automatic berths in to the Breeders’ Cup, with the Breeders’ Futurity also serving as a stop on the Road to the Kentucky Derby. In other words, this is not an event that you will want to miss.
The meet will offer a total of $5.325 million over 17 graded stakes events beginning October 6th.
Nine of these races are part of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series, which means that the winner earns an automatic berth in to specific events at the world championships. These include the Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix Stakes (Sprint), Darley Alciabdes Stakes (Juvenile Fillies), First Lady Stakes (Filly & Mare Turf ), Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes (Filly & Mare Sprint), Clairborne Breeders’ Futurity (Juvenile), Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes (Mile), Dixiana Bourbon Stakes (Juvenile Turf), Juddmonte Spinster Stakes (Distaff) and the JP Morgan Chase Jessamine Stakes (Juvenile Fillies Turf).
