Hard Not To Like, heroine of the 2013 GIII Marshua's River S. at Gulfstream Park, came out on top at 13-1 in a wild finish in the GI Jenny Wiley S. at Keeneland. With Javier Castellano aboard, she well-placed in fifth early, awaited racing room on the far turn and came flying when guided toward an opening along the rail in deep stretch to take it by a neck. Discreet Marq (Discreet Cat) was second; Abaco (Giant's Causeway) was third. The final time for 1 1/16 miles was 1:42.38. Hard Not to Like, runner-up in the 2012 GI Ashland S. over the Polytrack, entered off a win in a $100,000 optional tagger on the Gulfstream grass Feb. 28.
