Campanelle Heads Field For Friday’s Franklin County At Keeneland

Stonestreet Stables’ Campanelle (IRE), a two-time Group 1 winner in Europe, heads a field of 12 fillies and mares entered Sunday for Friday’s 25th running of the $150,000 Grade 3 Buffalo Trace Franklin County going 5½ furlongs on the turf at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky.

The Buffalo Trace Franklin County will go as the ninth race on Friday’s 10-race program with a 5:16 p.m. ET post time. First post Friday is 1 p.m.

Trained by Wesley Ward, Campanelle will be making her first start since being unplaced in the Group 1 Prix de Maurice de Gheest at Deauville, France in August. Joel Rosario will have the mount Friday and exit post position four.

Also figuring to attract interest are the 1-2 finishers from last month’s Grade 3 Mint Ladies Sprint at Kentucky Downs in Franklin, Ky., In Good Spirits and Catch a Bid.

Bal Mar Equine’s In Good Spirits, trained by Al Stall Jr., scored a two-length victory at Kentucky Downs and in the race prior to that was runner-up in the Grade 3 Caress at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., in July. John Velazquez has the mount on In Good Spirits, who will leave from post position five.

Highlander Training Center’s Catch a Bid, trained by Joe Sharp, won the West Virginia Senate President’s Cup at Mountaineer Park in New Cumberland, W. Va., in August prior to her Kentucky Downs race. She drew post position six and will be ridden by Tyler Gaffalione.
