Keeneland Presents American Graded Stakes Standings: Maker, Leparoux Find Success At Kentucky Downs

The graded stakes action was on the light side last weekend, with only four graded stakes contested. Despite the light schedule, there were still a couple of notable changes on this week’s American Graded Stakes Standings charts.

Kentucky Downs offered three graded stakes last Saturday, and horses trained by Mike Maker captured two of them – Hogy took the G3 Kentucky Downs Turf Sprint, and Oscar Nominated won the G3 Kentucky Turf Cup. With those two wins, Maker now has eight individual graded stakes winners this year, which moves him into fifth on the AGS trainers list.

Maker has also sent out the winners Bigger Picture (G1 United Nations, G3 John B. Connally Turf Cup), Enterprising (G2 Muniz Memorial, G3 Fair Grounds Handicap), Fast and Accurate (G3 Spiral), Granny’s Kitten (G3 Col. E.R. Bradley), Taghleeb (G3 W.L. McKnight), and Keystoneforvictory (G3 Stars and Stripes).

Jockey Julien Leparoux rode Oscar Nominated to victory in the KY Turf Cup, and he earned his 20th graded stakes win of the year as a result. Leparoux remains in fourth on the AGS jockey list, but it moved him to within one victory of Jose Ortiz, who remains in third this week with 21 wins.
