Lentenor to Race Saturday at Keeneland

Here we go again.  Lentenor is entered in race #8 at Keeneland on Saturday, a $49,000 allowance race at 1 1/8 miles on the All Weather Track, post time is 4:52.  Lentenor drew the outside position in the field of eleven.  While I would have preferred a different gate, it shouldn’t make that much difference due to the length of the race, I hope!

This will be Lentenor’s second time racing on Keeneland’s All Weather Surface.  He started his career at Keeneland back on October 31 of last year, an impressive third place finish with Julien Leparoux on board.  This time, Robby Albarado will get the mount on Lentenor; Julien will be on board the Christophe Clement trained colt, Alcomatch.   Fans might remember Robby Albarado because he was Curlin’s regular jockey, or when he finished third behind Barbaro in the 2006 Kentucky Derby aboard Steppenwolfer.   Lentenor is in good hands with a jockey that has won over 4,000 races and knows the track at Keeneland.   Looking at this field, it isn’t nearly as tough as his last race but still a decent field.  Lentenor should be the class of the race, but he does need to perform better than his 7th place finish in the Grade III Kent Stakes back on September 25.  Since that race, Lentenor has had one work.  It was this past Saturday on the dirt track at Fair Hill where he went four furlongs in  :48.20.  In that work, he fired a bullet by going the fastest of nine who worked, besting his big brother Nicanor by .40 of a second.  Lentenor left his home at Fair Hill on Monday for his trip to Keeneland.
