MUSKETIER (GER) BIDS FOR THIRD WIN IN CLOSING-DAY ELKHORN
On Friday, Keeneland’s closing-day feature is the 27th running of the $150,000 Elkhorn (G2), which offers a number of enticing angles. Among the nine horses entered on Tuesday is Stella Perdomo’s Musketier (GER), who will bid for his third consecutive win in the 1½-mile stakes on the turf after finishing second in the race in 2009. Now 10, the Acatenango gelding is trained by Roger Attfield, who saddled the 2009 winner, Spice Route (GB), and won the race in 2006 with Pellegrino (BRZ). Attfield, who will enter the Racing Hall of Fame this year, also will start Simmard in the Elkhorn. With William Werner, Attfield owns the Grade 2 winner, a 7-year-old son of Dixieland Band who was fourth in the race last year.
