    • KEENELAND PRESENTS AMERICAN GRADED STAKES STANDINGS: (MC) PEEK-ING AT THE RIGHT TIME

      Courtesy of the Paulick Report

      A light schedule of just five graded stakes over the weekend resulted in very few changes in the American Graded Stakes Standings for this week. 

      The most impressive performance of the week goes to Frac Daddy, who drew off to capture the G2 Eclipse Stakes at Woodbine by five lengths. It was the second graded stakes win of the year for the 4-year-old son of Scat Daddy - he romped to a 4 ¾-length win in the G3 Ben Ali at Keeneland in April. The gray/roan colt, while competitive on turf and dirt, appears to excel on synthetic surfaces. 

      While Frac Daddy's Eclipse victory still left him just shy of joining the top horses on the AGS list, it did move his trainer, Ken McPeek, into the top five on the AGS trainers list. The Kentucky native has sent out five individual graded stakes winners this season. In addition to Frac Daddy, McPeek has saddled Flashy American (G3 Sixty Sails), Occasional View (G3 Commonwealth), War Dancer (G3 Louisville), and Rosalind (G1 Ashland).
