McKeever having an impact at Fair Grounds

McKeever having an impact at Fair Grounds

Trainer Andrew McKeever was being realistic with the filly Daisy Devine when he ran her in a sprint against $30,000 maiden claimers in early December at the Fair Grounds.

In her debut in October at Keeneland, Daisy Devine finished far back in a maiden-special-weights race. The drop to maiden claiming company made sense to McKeever.


Daisy Devine won, re-enforcing McKeever’s assessment of her value.


“I knew she was a nice filly for 30 (thousand dollars), but I didn’t know she’d turn out like she did,’’ McKeever said.
