10 races are on tap at Churchill Downs on Sunday, October 2–closing day of the 2022 September Meet at the venerable Louisville, KY racetrack.

The featured ninth race on the program is a $127,000 entry-level allowance contest for fillies and mares three-years-old and upward slated for a nine-furlong journey on the main track.

Calumet Farm’s She’s Keen, seventh in the Alabama Stakes (G1) at Saratoga in her most recent start on August 20, is the 5-2 morning line choice in a field that attracted eight entrants. Jockey Brian Hernandez, Jr. will be astride the three-year-old daughter of Keen Ice for trainer Rusty Arnold.

First post is 12:45 P.M. (Eastern).
