Keeneland applies for July racing dates

Keeneland announced Friday plans for a five day summer meet to make up for its lost spring meet. The racing dates requested are July 8-12, which would include the Bluegrass Stakes to be run on July 11th. Keeneland also stated if allowed to have the dates by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, no spectators would be allowed. Currently, Ellis Park in Henderson has the five days on its racing card.
