April 19, 2019 10:12pm

Saturday’s ninth race from Keeneland is the Grade 2, $250,000 Elkhorn Stakes for 4-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a half on the turf course (Post Time - 5:30 p.m. ET).

#4 SOGLIO (4-1) had a rare off the board finish from an outer post in the Pan American (G2) last time. His last win was at this course/distance last fall and he figures to stalk the pace under his new rider Florent Geroux.

#10 Zulu Alpha (8-5) won two graded turf marathon races at Gulfstream Park this winter, and he captured the Sycamore (G3) at this course-distance last fall.

#8 Red Knight (5-1) exits a game head victory over Soglio at two miles. He is 6-for-9 overall on turf and will try to get involved late under Luis Saez.

#5 Canessar (6-1) probably moved too soon in the Pan American. He was 6th in this event last year and Feargal Lynch needs to time his move just right. He was 2nd in the Belmont Gold Cup (G2) at two miles last June and is probably using this event as a prep for that upcoming affair at Belmont Park.
