Final furlong

■ Adding to the litany of titles they already have this year, owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey won two races Friday to equal their own Keeneland Fall Meet record of 12 wins. The Ramseys shattered the all-time mark for most wins in a single Keeneland meet when they won 25 races last April during the Spring Meet.

■ Grade I winner Regally Ready earned his first victory since taking the 2011 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint when he bested a salty bunch that included fellow Grade I winner Turallure and graded stakes winner Nates Mineshaft to win the seventh race going 1 mile on the turf.
