Keeneland Race Course kicks off a weekend of live Thoroughbred racing action in Central Kentucky on Friday, April 9 with an excellent 10-race card anchored by a pair of stakes races–the $100,000 TVG Limestone Turf Sprint, a 5.5-furlong test for three-year-old fillies, and the $300,000 Maker’s Mark Mile (G1T), an eight-furlong turf affair for four-year-olds and upward.

In the Maker’s Mark Mile (G1T), the program’s signature event, Peter M. Brant’s Raging Bull (Fr), who will make his six-year-old debut off a five-month hiatus for trainer Chad Brown, is the 7-2 morning line choice in a well-matched field of nine-entrants. Jockey Irad Ortiz, Jr. has the call on the bay son of Dark Angel (Ire).
