(Louisville, KY) - Mike Hartnett

 

Saturday's card at Churchill Downs featured all 2-year-old races and included a pair of stakes events.

The Golden Rod Stakes for fillies was captured by 31 to 1 longshot, Seaneen Girl.   She won by a half-length over favored Gal About Town. 

Seaneen Girl, who returned $64, was ridden by Miguel Mena and is trained by Bernie Flint.


The Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes was highlighted by a thrilling stretch drive between Uncaptured and Frac Daddy.   Uncaptured, with Mena in the saddle, held off Frac Daddy by a neck to take it. 

The winner, who is trained by Mark Casse,  improved his record to six victories in seven starts.  Uncaptured paid $5.60.   Dewey Square came with a late charge to run third.
