Keeneland Spring Meet 2016

Apr. 9 - 29

Keeneland welcomes back racing to the Bluegrass on Friday for its ever-popular Spring Meet, a 16-day stand that runs through April 29.

The meet centerpiece will again be the $1 million Blue Grass (G1) for three-year-olds on Saturday. The nine-furlong Blue Grass highlights a stakes-laden program that will include a vintage renewal of the Ashland (G3) for three-year-old fillies, the Madison (G1) for older filly and mare sprinters, and two other graded stakes.

Other Grade 1 highlights of the meet are two turf events, the Maker's 46 Mile (G1) on April 14 and the Jenny Wiley (G1) for fillies and mares the following day.
