The Turf Handicap is one of four stakes worth at least $100,000 on the Saturday card. The others are the $200,000 Kentucky Cup Mile, the $100,000 Kentucky Cup Ladies Turf Handicap and the the $100,000 Kentucky Cup Turf Dash Stakes.
Grammarian, recent winner of the Sunset Handicap (gr. IIT) at Hollywood Park, is nominated to the $300,000 Kentucky Cup Turf Handicap (gr. IIIT) to be run Saturday at Kentucky Downs in Franklin. The 4-year-old broke his maiden at Kentucky Downs last year in impressive fashion. Veteran turf star Cetewayo, trained by Michael Dickinson, is also probable to run in the 12 furlong event.
