Keeneland Race 4
Sly Storm looked ready for action in the paddock before the race.
Well, Sly Storm had the sales numbers and the pedigree and now she's a debut winner. She was much the best in this one, drawing off to win by four. Sheltered ran a nice race to get third and will probably run better at a longer distance. Splendid Solution was a bit of a disappointment, as she looked amazing in the paddock, but was never really involved in the race.
