   Ken and Sarah Ramsey, Mike Maker and Joel Rosario had been close to unbeatable at the Keeneland meet, so it should have come as no surprise that they would find their way into the winner’s circle for the closing day feature. Claimed for $50,000 from trainer Ken McPeek and Joseph Engelhart, Magdalena Racing and Robert Trussell when fourth over the Polytrack here exactly a year ago, Dark Cove resurfaced at Fair Grounds Jan. 5 to finish fourth in an off-the-turfer. He beat $40,000 claimers on the Gulfstream sod under Rosario Feb. 10, and had last been seen finishing second for a $50,000 tag in Hallandale Beach Mar. 7. Maker has had incredible success in graded stakes with horses he has claimed--including Ramsey colorbearers Furthest Land (Smart Strike), Accredit (E Dubai), Headache (Tapit), Kindergarden Kid (Dynaformer), Lonesome Street (Broken Vow)--and the step up in class for Dark Cove proved no problem. Well-held by Rosario to stalk from close range while kept out wide, he asserted late on the final bend and kicked home for a decisive victory. "I can’t believe we’ve doubled the old record of 12 wins [in a single Keeneland meet]," said an emotional Ramsey, who was presented with a gold tray for having eight graded stakes winners at the Lexington oval. "To win 24 is unbelievable. The low point about today is my wife [Sarah] had to be taken to the hospital yesterday. She’s not doing that well, but nothing life-threatening. That’s the only sad part, that she’s not able to be here with me. But this is almost like heaven." For good measure, Maker and the Ramseys also took the last race of the day and meet at Keeneland.
