Keeneland and the Kentucky Derby

Keeneland September Yearling Sale graduate Greyvitos’ eye-catching victory in Sunday’s Remington Springboard Mile netted the colt 10 points on the 2018 Road to the Kentucky Derby (G1).

Keeneland September Sale alumni accounted for three Grade 3 wins on Saturday’s card at Gulfstream: Rich Mommy was an authoritative winner of the Sugar Swirl; Lewis Bay returned from a 13-month freshener to win the Rampart; and Shakhimat rolled to an easy victory in the Tropical Turf.
