Keeneland September Sale Graduates Enforceable, Anneau d’Or Early Favorites for Grade 2 Risen Star

February 14, 2020

Enforceable and Anneau d’Or, both graduates of Keeneland’s 2018 September Yearling Sale, are favored in the first and second divisions, respectively, of the Risen Star Presented by Lamarque Ford (G2) at Fair Grounds on Saturday. The Risen Star is a prep on the 2020 Road to the Kentucky Derby (G1).

Enforceable won the Lecomte (G3) at Fair Grounds in his 3-year-old debut. Also entered in the first division of the Risen Star are Silver State and Mr. Monomoy, second and third, respectively, in the Lecomte. West Coast-based Anneau d’Or tops the second division of the Risen Star after runner-up efforts in the TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) and Los Alamitos Futurity (G2).

Graduates of the 2018 September Sale also lead entries for two other classic preps on Saturday.

Tempers Rising, third in the Silverbulletday Stakes in January, and graded stakes-placed His Glory highlight the field for the Rachel Alexandra (G2) at Fair Grounds, a prep for the Kentucky Oaks (G1). Azul Coast seeks to increase his Derby points with a win in the El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate. The Super Saver colt is favored following a second-place finish in the Sham (G3).

All five fillies and mares entered in the Santa Monica (G2) at Santa Anita are Keeneland sales graduates, led by Grade 1 winner Hard Not to Love and Grade 3 winner Lady Ninja
