Rahystrada strutted his class while giving Greta Kuntzweiler her second straight victory in the Kentucky Downs showcase event, the Kentucky Cup Turf, as a four-day meet opened Saturday with the 14th running of the Grade 3, $150,000 race.

Rahystrada, owned by Robert Courtney and based at the Thoroughbred Training Center with trainer Scooter Hughes, returned $3.60 as the heavy favorite after finishing in 2:32.40 over firm turf.
