Keeneland concludes its’ first full week of live racing on Sunday, April 23rd with a nine-race program highlighted by the seventh on the card, a competitive $80,000 optional claiming/”non-winners of three races other than” allowance heat for fillies and mares four-years-old and upward to be contested at a seven-furlong trip on the main track.

Mo d’Amour, winner of the $125,000 Busher Stakes last February for trainer Todd Pletcher, has been installed as the 5-2 morning line favorite in the field of eight. Stageplay, a two-time stakes winner for trainer Steve Asmussen that exits graded company, figures to have a say in the outcome.

The Sunday program is also Military Day at the Races Presented by Marathon, recognizing the men and women who serve our country. All active-duty, reserve, veteran and military families receive free admission with a military I.D., DD214 veteran I.D. or other form of Military I.D. at any pass gate.

The Green Sheet touted three winners from a 10-race program yesterday at Keeneland highlighted by Enchantera, who paid $13.40 annexing yesterday’s seventh race. Additionally, The Sheet gave out a $116.40 superfecta in the fourth race on the card and had a $163.80 trifecta in the third. For the meet to date, The Sheet is giving away winners at a 27 percent clip; its’ top selections are finishing in the money 57 percent of the time.
