Rocket Fuel

LEXINGTON, KY (Nov. 24, 2017) – Keeneland sales graduates comprise half the entries for the Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) and Golden Rod (G2) at Churchill Downs on Saturday. Both stakes award points on the 2018 Roads to the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Kentucky Oaks (G1).

Undefeated fillies Monomoy Girl, winner of the recent Rags to Riches Stakes at Churchill Downs, and Stronger Than Ever highlight the field for the Golden Rod.   

Fifty-two Keeneland sales graduates are scheduled to compete in North American graded stakes this weekend, including five of the nine contestants in the Hollywood Derby (G1) on Saturday at Del Mar, led by Sharp Samurai, a graded stakes winner in his last three starts, most recently the Twilight Derby (G2).
