■ Bouquet Booth, fourth in last Saturday's Grade I Ashland Stakes, returned to the track to jog Thursday morning, but her status for the Kentucky Oaks remains undecided. "I am waiting for the owners to make a decision," trainer Steve Margolis said. "She is also nominated to the Eight Belles and the Edgewood."
■ Jockey Rosie Napravnik, who recently became the first woman to win the riding title at Fair Grounds, earned her first two victories of the 2011 Keeneland Spring Meet. She scored with Friscan in the second race, and she won the last race aboard Safe Crossing.
