Keeneland sales grads swept the weekend’s two graded stakes for three-year-olds. Mark Valeski won Belmont’s Peter Pan Stakes (G2) for owner Brereton Jones, trainer Larry Jones and jockey Rosie Napravnik. Only a half-length separated first- and second-place finishers and Keeneland sales alumni Drill and American Act in the Lazaro S. Barrera Memorial (G3) at Hollywood.
