Awesome Act Returns at Keeneland

Awesome Act, 19th in the 2010 Kentucky Derby, makes his much anticipated return to action in Wednesday's 8th race at Keeneland. The eight and one-half furlong allowance grass race has attracted fourteen entrants. 

The Steve Asmussen trainee impressively captured the Gotham Stakes last year and finished a well-beaten 3rd behind Eskendereya in the Wood Memorial for Jeremy Noseda. He raced wide and never fired in the slop at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May and he has not been seen since.

Julien Leparoux sticks with Awesome Act and he shows multiple turf works for this engagement. He captured one of four grass starts in Great Britain and finished a close-up 4th in the '09 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf.

Mr. Ryder figures to offer value and is steadily improving for Christophe Clement. The $800,000 Keeneland sales graduate has the talent to pull off the hat trick and should work out a decent tactical trip.

Hailstone ran to his strong turf breeding at Gulfstream Park in February and the show finisher returned to score. He has only raced four times and has plenty of upside.

Joshua Reynolds might be worth a longshot look. The Ralph Nicks trainee exits back-to-back Fair Grounds turf wins and the place finisher from his last came back to score.   

The field also includes Shrimp Dancer, Lejadami, Colonialism, Day of Destiny, El Crespo, Zeb, Cat Park, and B'wanagoldmine. The two also-eligibles are Kindergarden Kid and Boisterous.
