Horses away from racing for a year or more are typically unlikely
winners. But Saturday at Kentucky Downs, such layoffs were,
surprisingly, the path to victory.
Cloudy's Knight, unraced since finishing eighth in the Grade 1
Northern Dancer on Sept. 7 of last year at Woodbine, returned a winner
in the featured $150k, Grade 3 Kentucky Cup Turf -- following Danzon's triumph in the Kentucky Cup Ladies earlier on the Kentucky Downs card.
