Ramseys Take Aim at Keeneland Record

kenramseyownECL

Horses owned by Ken and Sarah Ramsey of Nicholasville, Kentucky, won two races on Thursday, pushing the Ramseys’ total number of victories through the first five days of the 16-day spring meet to nine. The Ramseys need four more wins to set a record for owners during a Keeneland meet.

The Ramseys won a total of 12 races last fall and tied Calumet Farm, who achieved that mark in the spring of 1941, and Mr. and Mrs. Robert F. Roberts, who won 12 races during the 1968 fall race meet.

The Ramseys, who received the Eclipse Award as outstanding owner in 2011, have earned 11 titles as Keeneland’s leading owner, including a sweep of last year’s spring and fall race meets.

The Ramseys do not have any horses racing today. On Saturday, they will have a horse in three graded stakes: Bernie the Maestro in the Commonwealth Stakes (G3), Holiday for Kitten in the Madison Stakes (G1) and Charming Kitten in the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G1).

A victory by one of those runners will give the Ramseys eight graded stakes wins at Keeneland. In honor of that milestone, the Ramseys would receive a gold tray as part of Keeneland’s signature graded stakes trophy program. Only 17 other owners in Keeneland history have achieved such an accomplishment.
