If the momentum of Millennium Wind's Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) victory can get him to the wire first in the May 5 Kentucky Derby (gr.

Ten 3-year-olds, some of which may be looking for a berth in the May 5 Kentucky Derby, will square off Saturday in the $325,000 Coolmore Lexington Stakes at Keeneland. The Lexington, a grade II event, was won in 1999 by Charismatic, who went on to win the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. He then finished third in the Belmont Stakes even though he suffered a career-ending injury.

The first reported foal by Horse of the Year Charismatic was born at William S. Farish's Lane's End Farm near Versailles, Ky., on Tuesday. The newborn colt is the third foal from the Danzig mare Tomisue's Girl, whose grade II stakes-winning dam, Glowing Honor, is a full or half-sister to six stakes winners, including Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Sea Hero. The next dam is Kentucky Broodmare of the Year Glowing Tribute.
