Keeneland – Race 1
#4 KAUFYMAKER (9/5 odds)
Ward filly comes into this race off a couple of heads-up drills with DREAM FLY, who went off as the 4/5 favorite in Friday’s opener and ran an okay second after breaking slowly. Note that Irad Ortiz has been named to ride, and also note she’s a filly racing against colts, which would seem to indicate some confidence. Might be one of Ward’s better 2yo Keeneland entrants.
