The final card of Keeneland’s 2016 Fall Meeting features a solid 10-race program highlighted not only by the Hagyard Fayette (G2) for three-year-olds and upward going a mile and an eighth on the main track, but also a must-pay $21,122 Pick 6 carryover, which goes as races five through 10 on the card.

The 59th renewal of the Hagyard Fayette (G2) drew an intriguing field of eight, featuring graded stakes winners Noble Bird, Kasaqui (Arg), and Divining Rod. Chocopologie and Iron Fist round out a competitive lot for the final stakes race of the season at the Lexington oval.

The Green Sheet took a black eye on Friday, giving out one cold winner—Jeunesse Doree ($4.40) in the finale—and a $197 boxed-trifecta in the third, but we’re back for more action on Saturday and looking forward to the upcoming Churchill meet.

Going into the final day of racing for the year in Lexington, The Green Sheet is 24-for-130 with winning selections on top, hitting at a 18 percent strike rate.
