Keeneland Fall Day 2: October 8, 2016

Photo by Stefan Krasowski on

It was about this time last year when the dearth of furniture in my newly moved-into home really hit home, yet the household budget didn’t afford any leeway for wild splurges. I remember talking with Anthony Hamilton, Jr., with whom I share a barn at The Thoroughbred Center in Lexington, Ky., about his horse FIORETTI’s chances in The Thoroughbred Club Of America stakes, and we came to the conclusion that she had a great chance to win at huge odds. Win she did at 17-1 and after backing her, I was able to buy the sleek green couch that sits in my living room today.

Today’s continuation of Fall Stars Weekend features some great horses—TEPIN, STONETASTIC, GRAND ARCH, MONDIALISTE (Ire)—but I’ll never forget FIORETTI shocking the TCA field last year. Here’s hoping she can do it again.
The Green Sheet got off to a good start on Friday’s opening day card, as top pick YOU BOUGHT HER won the first race and paid $16.60. GERMAINES’s BOY was second in the second race at 16-1 and top pick HELOOKSTHEPART was only a half-length off the win at 4-1 in the third race.
