Final furlong

■ Trainer Mike Maker got his record-tying 16th win of the meet Sunday when Kingsford Drive took the third race under jockey Alan Garcia. Maker is now tied with Todd Pletcher for most wins by a trainer during the Spring Meet. Pletcher set the mark in 2005. The all-time Keeneland record for most wins by a trainer in any meet is held by Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas, who won 22 races in the Fall Meet of 1989.
