Kentucky Downs kicks-off its brief, albeit lucrative, seven-day 2022 FanDuel Meet on Thursday, September 1 in Franklin, KY with a 10-race, all-turf program on the agenda.

The card is highlighted by the $400,000 FanDuel Tapit Stakes, a one-mile and 70-yard turf contest for three-year-olds and upward that have not won a stakes race in 2022.

Bonne Chance Farm, LLC and Stud R D I’s In Love (Brz), who has been competing exclusively in Grade 1 stakes races since last fall, is the 7-2 morning line favorite in a field that attracted 12 entrants. Jockey Alex Achard has the call on the six-year-old bay son of Agnes Gold (Jpn) for trainer Paulo Lobo.

Jockey Joel Rosario, who was the leading rider at Kentucky Downs last September with a record 17 wins, and trainers Steve Asmussen, Mike Maker, and Brendan Walsh–all of whom tied for leading trainer honors last year with four victories apiece–will all be back to defend their respective titles in 2022.

Rosario does not have a mount on Thursday’s opening day program but is expected to return to Franklin, KY after the Saratoga meet closes on Monday, September 5. Asmussen, Maker, and Walsh all have multiple horses entered on opening day.

The elite, all-turf meeting begins on September 1 and continues on September 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, and 14. Post time is 12:20 P.M. (Central) daily.
