Final furlong

■ One race before Wise Dan made his 2013 debut by winning the Grade I Maker's 46 Mile, his half-brother Casino Dan ran second to the Shug McGaughey-trained Reload in race No. 8, a 6-furlong test on the main track.

■ Hall of Famer Gary Stevens won his second race of the Keeneland meet Friday, taking the sixth race on Biorhythm for trainer Tom Proctor. Stevens came out of retirement this January and is now 2-for-6 for the Keeneland Spring Meet.
