Can Magnolia Midnight Bloom In Keeneland Spring Opener? / Monday, March 7, 2022

Magnolia Midnight will kick off a surge of WPT runners, igniting spring action at Keeneland when he lines up on opening day in the $400,000 Lafayette Stakes for 3-year-old sprinters.

Dallas Stewart trains Magnolia Midnight, who is coming off an allowance victory at Oaklawn on January 15. Nothing suitable materialized for him in February or early March so the decision was made to wait for the seven-furlong Lafayette, which has been a springboard for some very 3-year-old sprinters through the years including Housebuster, Mr. Greeley and Posse.

Purchased at the 2021 OBS April sale, Magnolia Midnight will team with the Hall of Famer John Velazquez with post 10 in a field of 12.
