LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Uncaptured is the early favorite for Saturday's $750,000 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland.
The Mark Casse-trained colt drew the seventh post position Wednesday for the Grade I qualifier worth 170 total points toward the Kentucky Derby. He was second to Black Onyx in last month's Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park and has six wins in eight starts, including last fall's Grade II Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs.
Uncaptured is the 7-2 favorite while Rydilluc and Java's War, Kentucky breds who drew the 13th and fourth positions respectively, are both 4-1.
Rydilluc has a three-race winning streak, including the Grade III Palm Beach Stakes on March 3; Java's War was second at last month's Tampa Bay Derby in his 2013 debut.
Dynamic Sky drew the first post at 10-1.
