Keeneland Shatters Blue Grass Day Records

Saturday was the biggest day in Keeneland history.

 

On the day Donegal Racing’s Dullahan ran down champion Hansen to win the $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass (G1), Keeneland shattered its single-day attendance and all-sources wagering records.

 

On-track attendance of 40,617 crushed the previous record of 33,821 set on Saturday, April 21, 2007, day of the Coolmore Lexington (G2). The former record for a Toyota Blue Grass Day attendance was 33,727 set on April 10, 2010.

 

All-sources wagering of $21,647,378.17 broke the former record of $19,246,840 set on the 2007 Toyota Blue Grass Day, which fell on April 14 that year.

 

Yesterday’s card, which included the $300,000 Jenny Wiley (G1), $175,000 Commonwealth (G3) and $100,000 Shakertown (G3), was the first 12-race program in Keeneland history.
