Maker Equals Keeneland Win Mark

On Sunday, trainer Mike Maker won one race to score his meet-leading 16th victory and equal the spring season trainer’s record set by Todd Pletcher in 2005. D. Wayne Lukas, for whom Maker and Pletcher both served as assistants, set the overall track record when he won 22 races in the fall of 1989.

Thirteen of Maker’s wins have been for Ken and Sarah Ramsey, who have won a record 17 races as owners. 

Leading jockey Joel Rosario, who has 26 wins, has been aboard 15 of the Ramseys’ winners. Randy Romero set the spring record of 32 wins in 1990. In the fall of 1991, Pat Day set the overall record when he rode 45 winners.

Of the 18 horses the Ramseys have entered on the final three days of the meet, 15 are trained by Maker and 13 will be ridden by Rosario. One of them is Dark Cove, who was entered Tuesday for Friday’s Elkhorn Stakes (G3). If Dark Cove wins, the Ramseys will earn their eighth graded stakes victory at Keeneland and receive a gold tray from the track in recognition of the milestone achievement.
