Edited press release
Keeneland has announced that post time for the first race will be 1:05 p.m. (ET) during its April 3-24 spring meet. Post time has previously been 1:10 p.m.
“We changed the post time as part of a cooperative effort between Keeneland, NYRA and Gulfstream Park to stagger our races throughout the day so fans don’t miss any of the action,” said Keeneland president & CEO Nick Nicholson.
First post at Aqueduct is scheduled for 1 p.m., followed by Keeneland at 1:05 p.m. and Gulfstream Park at 1:15 p.m.
Keeneland will conduct 17 stakes races worth a total of $3.8 million in the spring, highlighted by the $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) for 3-year-olds on Saturday, April 11, and the $400,000 Ashland Stakes (gr. I) for 3-year-old fillies on Saturday, April 4.
