6th-KEE, $100K, Msw, 3yo, 6f, 3:40 p.m.
At Keeneland on Sunday afternoon, MAGIC TAP (Tapit) debuts for Winchell Thoroughbreds breaking from post three with Irad Ortiz Jr. in the irons. The $450,000 KEESEP purchase, bred by Don Alberto, is a half to MGISW American Gal (Concord Point).

Dam GSP American Story (Ghostzapper) is herself a sibling to G1 Golden Shaheen victor Reynaldothewizard (Speightstown) and GI Apple Blossom scorer Seventh Street (Street Cry {Ire}), who went on to produce GSW Lake Avenue (Tapit). This Steve Asmussen firster fired a bullet work at the Fair Grounds on Mar. 26 (5f, :59.40, 1/27).

Drawn to the inside, MALIBU SPRINGS (Quality Road), for Todd Pletcher, is out of multiple stakes winning dam Marquee Miss (Cowboy Cal), who herself is a half-sister to GISW Promises Fullfilled (Shackleford). The WinStar homebred will have the services of John Velazquez.

BRIGADE COMMANDER (Hard Spun), a $325,000 KEESEP buy, was bred by Tami Bobo. Trained by Dallas Stewart and ridden by Flavien Prat, the bay colt counts GISW Daddys Lil Darling (Scat Daddy) and GI Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint hero Mongolian Saturday (Any Given Saturday) among his female family.
