There are a few recognizable equine faces in Louisville this weekend that had at least a cup of coffee at Colonial Downs on their journey to the Breeder's Cup.
Putthebabiesdown is entered in the Grey Goose Juvenile Fillies which will go off at 6:10 Friday evening (8th race) . A longshot making her first start on the dirt, Putthebabiesdown was the runner up in the $50,000 Tippett Stakes at Colonial Downs to Softly Lit. Alan Garcia who was aboard at Colonial Downs returns on the mount for Ken McPeek and owner J C M Racing, LLC. The filly sired by Closing Argument out of Turtle Beach recently finished third in the Grade I Alcibiades on Keeneland synthetic surface.
