Keltish Lass Wins!!
West Point Thoroughbreds' streak of wins continued this evening as Keltish Lass put in a tremendous effort winning an a-other than allowance race at Kentucky Downs. While the bucolic setting of the Franklin, KY track might seem laid back to some, the competition on the track was fierce.
Keltish Lass broke alertly and settled into the back of the pack in the early going. She made a five-wide move coming out of the turn and fought gamely to win by a nose. Jockey Jamie Theriot shared, "My filly broke great and didn't quite know where she was for the first half-mile. I think the up and down of the hills threw her for a loop. As we came out of the turn, she really collected herself and then took off. She really fought for this win."
Keltish Lass earned $16,200 for her effort bringing her career earnings to $77,020.
