Keeneland Presents American Graded Stakes Standings: Razor Sharp

The schedule of graded stakes races has become noticeably lighter as the year continues to wind down. There were just five graded stakes scheduled last weekend, with four of the five contested at Aqueduct.

The prestigious Cigar Mile was one of the races contested on Saturday, and judging from the high-quality field assembled, it appeared that the decision run the race (along with the Remsen, Demoiselle, and Go for Wand) a week later than it had been previously had been was a wise one.

Proving to be much too tough for his rivals, Sharp Azteca rolled to a 5 ¼-length victory in the race. That not only provided the son of Freud with the first Grade 1 win of his career, it also marked his fourth graded stakes win of the year. That moved him into a tie for second on the American Graded Stakes Standings list of top horses.

In addition to the Cigar Mile, Sharp Azecta has won the G2 Gulfstream Park Mile Handicap, G2 Kelso Handicap, and G2 Monmouth Cup.
