Day at the Races: Keeneland's Fall Meet wraps up Saturday

Yesterday's figures: On-track attendance, 14,310; on-track betting, $1,031,468.10; total betting including simulcast, $6,812,658.69.

This day last year: On-track attendance, 17,826; on-track betting, $1,278,468; total betting including simulcast, $6,658,963.

Coming up: The final day of the Keeneland Fall Meet concludes with a 10-race card featuring the Grade III, $150,000 Pin Oak Valley View for 3-year-old fillies going 11⁄16-miles on the turf. Include Betty, winner of the Grade I Mother Goose Stakes, tries her talents on the grass for trainer Tom Proctor.

Final furlong

Corey Lanerie is that much closer to his first ever Keeneland meet title. Lanerie, who started the card with a 20-16 lead in the standings over Julien Leparoux, booted home two more winners Friday to Leparoux's one to put himself in a commanding position heading into closing day. Leparoux has seven mounts on Saturday.

Lael Stables' Ageless will not run in next Saturday's Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint, according to trainer Arnaud Delacour.

"We are not going to make it," Delacour said of the mare, who sustained a deep cut below her left hock in winning the Buffalo Trace Franklin County on Oct. 9. "I wish we had another two weeks, but you can't go into a Grade 1 race half ready. It is just bad timing, but that's racing."

Ageless, fourth in last year's Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint, is scheduled to return to Fair Hill Training Center in Maryland on Sunday. No decision has been made on the 6-year-old mare's racing future.
