Never miss a local story.
■ Joel Rosario was feted after notching his 2,000 career win in North American Thursday after booting home the Arch filly Dating Lady Luck in the day's second race on the card. Rosario wasted no time added to his milestone, winning the third and fourth races on the day to bring his career total to 2,002.
■ The first runner for champion Uncle Mo went into the books as his first winner. Outwork, a 2-year-old bay colt by the Coolmore sire, scored a front-running victory in the day's fifth race, drawing off by 21/4 lengths in a 41/2 furlong maiden race. Outwork is bred and owned by Mike Repole, who campaigned Uncle Mo, and is trained by Todd Pletcher, who also conditioned the 2010 juvenile champion. Finishing second to Outwork was Finnegan, a half brother to Grade I winner and 2012 Kentucky Derby runner up Bodemeister.
■ It was a good day for first-crop sires at Keeneland. Tia Flor became the first winner for Spendthrift stallion Archarcharch when she took the nightcap going 41/2 furlongs on the main track. The dark bay filly was making her second career start having run fifth first time out at Keeneland on April 15.
■ Keeneland will close the Spring Meet with the Dixiana Farm Presents Concert on the Lawn featuring national country music artist Sundy Best. The free concert immediately after the final race (post time is 5:44 p.m.) benefits the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Foundation.
