Oscar Nominated Wins Kentucky Turf Cup Stakes at Kentucky Downs
Kentucky Downs in Franklin, Kentucky was the scene of the $600,000 G3 Calumet Farm Kentucky Turf Cup Stakes on Saturday, September 9. Horses three years old and upward took to Kentucky Downs turf track and raced 1 1/2 miles. Ken and Sarah Ramsey's 7-2 second betting choice Oscar Nominated bided his time, made his move in the stretch and eventually prevailed by a half length over 5-2 favorite Postulation who got in for second. 5-1 co-third choice Muqtaser finished a close third in the field of 12 while St. Louie, Taghleeb, Bullards Alley, Nessy, One Go All Go, Enterprising, Zulu Alpha, Lucky Ramsey, and Crescent Drive completed the order of finish. Also-eligibles Motivational and Tobias did not get the call and were scratched.
