Fall Meet opens with a Heavenly win at Keeneland

An unseasonably warm day was won by a Heavenly Love in the 66th running of the $400,000 Darley Alcibiades to open the Fall Meet Friday at Keeneland. A crowd of 19,204 came out on a clear, 80-plus degree October afternoon to see two tickets punched for next month’s Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
