Final furlong

■ Fans will have the opportunity to meet 2011 Kentucky Oaks winner Plum Pretty on Sunday when she will be paraded in the paddock before Keeneland's fifth race. Owned by John Fort's Peachtree Stables, the recently retired Plum Pretty is cataloged in Keeneland's upcoming November Breeding Stock Sale and will be consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency as agent.

Ladies who wear purple to the track will have the opportunity to win a photograph session with the filly and win her halter.

■ Olympian and Lexington native Tyson Gay will be an honored guest at Keeneland on Sunday. Tom Leach will moderate a Q&A with Gay from 12:05-12:30 p.m. Gay will then participate in an autograph signing outside the gift shop from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Keeneland will provide a photo of Gay for free for the signing (no outside items). One photo/autograph per person.
