Keeneland 2016  It’s no surprise that Ken and Sarah Ramsey would win of the first races at the Keeneland spring meeting. The successful owners captured the second race with Slan Abhaile after he contested the early pace and disposed of a late challenge. The Mike Maker trainee defeated $10,000 claimers over six and one half furlongs in 1:17.16. Ridden by Javier Castellano, the bay gelding returned $3.00 to his backers after claiming his sixth career victory. The son of Hard Spun has finished in the money (top three finishers) in 18 of 32 races and has accumulated $243,000 in lifetime earnings.   Trainer Mike Maker is one of the 24 “Kings of Keeneland” featured in Art Parker’s book.
