Key of Life Favored in Beaumont

Key of Life | Coady

Flurry Racing Stables and Hoffman Family Racing's Key of Life (Mo Town) is the even-money favorite on the morning line for Sunday's GII Beaumont S. at Keeneland, the lone graded offering of the day in the U.S. The bay filly, who faces six rivals in the seven-furlong event for 3-year-old fillies, comes off a front-running tally in the Mar. 25 Purple Mountain S.

While she will be trying seven furlongs for the first time in her career, the Brad Cox trainee already owns a pair of victories over the Keeneland surface. She romped by 6 1/4 lengths in a optional claimer last October before adding a 6 3/4-length victory in the Oct. 28 Myrtlewood S. Both of those efforts were at six furlongs.

Cox, who won the GIII Stonestreet Lexington S. with First Mission (Street Sense) on Saturday's card at Keeneland, will be looking for his second straight win in the Beaumont, following Matareya (Pioneerof the Nile)'s victory a year ago.
