Irap Wins Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland Racecourse

The $1 million G2 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes was run Saturday, April 8 at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky - a 1 1/8 mile dirt "Road to the Kentucky Derby" test for three year old Derby hopefuls. It was 31-1 longshot Irap that shocked the field and broke his maiden in the prestigious race - by three quarters of a length. Multiple Grade 1 winner, 7-2 third betting choice Practical Joke wound up second in the field of seven with previously unbeaten 8-5 favorite McCraken getting in for a slightly disappointing third. J Boys Echo was fourth with 2-1 second choice Tapwrit, It's Your Nickel and Wild Shot completing the order of finish.
