■ Two-time Eclipse Award winning jockey Javier Castellano earned his first leading rider title at a Keeneland meet, visiting the Winner's Circle 21 times through the 15-day Spring Meet. He has won four graded stakes — the Grade I Maker's 46 Mile, Grade I Jenny Wiley, Grade III Ben Ali and Grade III Transylvania — and had five three-win days during the Spring Meet. "I'm very blessed," Castellano said. "The Keeneland meet is very prestigious and I'm very lucky to ride good horses and have a lot of support from Mr. (Ken) Ramsey and a lot of owners, and top trainers Todd Pletcher, Chad Brown and Shug McGaughey, Mike Maker and everyone. I've been on a lot of good horses. I've been very lucky and fortunate."

■ Seven-time Eclipse Award winner Todd Pletcher earned his third Keeneland Spring Meet title and fourth Keeneland title overall, finishing with 10 victories. Highlighting Pletcher's meet was his saddling Carpe Diem to victory in the Grade I Toyota Blue Grass Stakes, the track's signature Kentucky Derby prep.
■ Owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey earned their record-setting 15th Keeneland title overall as their runners won 11 races during the Spring Meet. Through 2014, they were tied with T.A. Grissom, who earned 14 leading owner titles between 1954-1977, recording titles singly and in partnership with J.E. Grissom. The Ramseys have won or shared seven Spring Meet leading owner titles (2004, 2006, 2010-2013, 2015) and eight Fall Meet titles (2000, 2002, 2007-09, 2012-14). The couple received Eclipse Awards as outstanding owner and breeder in 2013 and 2014 and as outstanding owner in 2004 and 2011.
