Previous Winners Bound For Nowhere, Imprimis Clash In 2021 Shakertown

Wesley Ward’s Bound for Nowhere and Breeze Easy’s Imprimis, respective winners of the 2018 and 2019 runnings of the Shakertown (G2), headline a field of 13 3-year-olds and up entered Tuesday for Saturday’s 25th edition of the $200,000 race going 5½ furlongs on the grass course at Keeneland.

The Shakertown will go as the eighth race on Saturday afternoon’s 11-race program with a 4:57 p.m. post time.

Also trained by Ward, Bound for Nowhere was caught late in the past two runnings of the Shakertown, finishing a neck behind Imprimis in 2019 when running second, and a neck behind Leinster and Totally Boss in last year’s running that was his most recent start. Joel Rosario has the mount and will break from post position 13.

Trained by Joe Orseno, Imprimis has a victory and a runner-up finish in his 2021 starts. He ended last season with a troubled trip in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) here in which he finished 13th. Paco Lopez has the mount Saturday and will exit post position two.

Soaring Free (2004-2005) is the only two-time winner of the Shakertown.
