Strong Field For The Bourbon On Sunday

The great racing at KEE continues on Sunday, as trainers hope to earn BC points to bring their horses back here in a month for virtual racing’s biggest weekend. One race you can always count on to be very competitive is the Grade 2 Bourbon for the valuable BC Juvenile Turf points that it offers.

Indian Summer Winning The Indian Summer Seems Logical

While other stake races going at KEE over the weekend have a longer history, the Indian Summer has only been held since 2018, and is still an ungraded stake. That does not keep it from being a great opportunity to pick up BC points, as well as the winners share of a $250.000 purse, the highest that the race has seen to date.
