July 5, 2020

A total of 109 horses were entered Sunday morning for Wednesday’s nine-race card that marks opening day of Keeneland’s five-day Summer Meet.

First post during the Summer Meet is 1:05 p.m. ET.

In Wednesday’s eighth race, an $80,000 allowance event for 3-year-olds going 5½ furlongs on turf, Stonestreet Stables’ Cambria will face males when she makes her first start since finishing ninth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (G2) in November at Santa Anita. Wesley Ward trains Cambria, a daughter of Speightstown who has won three of four starts. She will be ridden by Tyler Gaffalione.

The Summer Meet will feature 10 graded stakes beginning with the Maker’s Mark Mile (G1) and Beaumont (G3) Presented by Keeneland Select on Friday. The Toyota Blue Grass (G2) and Central Bank Ashland (G1) headline six stakes on Saturday with the TVG Elkhorn (G2) and Kentucky Utilities Transylvania (G3) completing the stakes lineup Sunday.

Entries for Thursday’s card will be taken Monday.
