10-races are on tap at Keeneland Race Course on Friday, April 15, as the venerable Lexington, KY racetrack jump starts a weekend of Thoroughbred racing in the Bluegrass State.

The card features a pair of stakes races on the grass–the $200,000 TVG Limestone Stakes, a 5.5-furlong turf sprint for three-year-old fillies, and the $600,000 Maker’s Mark Mile (G1T), an eight-furlong affair for four-year-olds and upward to be contested on the Haggin Turf Course.

In the TVG Limestone Stakes, Andrew Farm, et al’s Her World (Ire), who broke her maiden in her career debut in the $104,000 Tyro Stakes at Monmouth Park last summer, is the 2-1 morning line favorite in a field that attracted 10 entrants. Irad Ortiz, Jr. has the call on the gray daughter of Caravaggio for trainer Wesley Ward.

In the Maker’s Mark Mile–the program’s signature event–Cannon Thoroughbreds, LLC’s Smooth Like Strait, second in the 2021 Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1T) at Del Mar in his last start, is the 2-1 morning line choice in a well-matched field of 11. Jockey Umberto Rispoli will be astride the five-year-old bay son of Midnight Lute for trainer Michael McCarthy.
