Saturday's 9th race (5:35pm ET) from Kentucky Downs is the Grade III Kentucky Turf Cup for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a half on the turf course.
#7 Side Road (9-2) hooked some tough customers recently, including G2 Bowling Green hero Hyper, G1 Arlington Million winner Real Solution, and G3 Louisville 'Cap & G3 Stars and Stripes winner Dark Cove. Kiaran McLaughlin's long-winded colt sports a win and three 2nds from his last four firm turf marathons and earned the best last race number in the John's Call at Saratoga.
