Notes: Though only a maiden winner, this son of two-time horse of the year Curlin may get the opportunit y to run for the roses with a couple more defections from the Kentucky Derby leaderboar d. Currently sitting at 22 nd on Churchill Downs list after the final round of prep races on April 11, Keen Ice will race in the Derby if his 22 qualifying points prove sufficient to get a spot in the gate. The Dale Romans trainee failed to secure a position sooner when he disappoint ed with a non-threat ening fourth-pla ce finish and final time of 1 52.0 under jockey James Graham in the 1 1/8m G2 Louisiana Derby on March 28 at Fair Grounds. The colt broke his maiden under the twin spires in his second career start last September. He stepped into stakes company next with a fifth-plac e finish in Keeneland s G1 Claiborne Breeders Futurity and closed out 2014 with a third-plac e run in the G2 Remsen S. at Aqueduct. He showed little when launching his sophomore season with a dull fifth in the G2 Holy Bull S. at Gulfstream Park in January and was sent to Fair Grounds to benefit from the longer stretch in New Orleans. Keen Ice responded well to that when he closed for a good show finish in the G2 Risen Star S. four weeks later and earned his career best 94 BRIS Speed Rating. Bred in Kentucky by Glencrest Farm, the bay is out of Medomak, a daughter of Awesome Again, and was foaled on March 25, 2012. Chesapeake Bloodstock paid 48,000 for the colt at the Keeneland 2012 November Breeding Stock Sale before Donegal Racing purchased him for 120,000 at the Keeneland 2013 September Yearling Sale. Keen Ice has banked 160,395 while running up a 7-1-0-2 record.
