Copper Bullet | Matt Goins


9th-KEE, $100K, Msw, 2yo, f, 5 1/2fT, 5:16 p.m. ET
Fresh off his inaugural stakes win last weekend, Darby Dan's first-crop sire Copper Bullet will be represented by Winchell homebred COPPERDROP in her grassy Keeneland debut here.

Out of a productive Tapit dam who is full-sister to GIII Silverbulletday S. victor War Echo as well as a half to GI Forego S. winner Pyro (Pulpit), the Steve Asmussen trainee counts Pegasus S. hero Pneumatic (Uncle Mo) and the stakes-placed duo of Costa Terra (Gun Runner) and Echo Again (Gun Runner) as siblings.

Also set for her unveiling is Richard and Connie Snyder's Lola's Light (City Light). The Cove Springs homebred, trained by Chris Hartman, is a half-sister to two sons of Graydar–GIII Robert B. Lewis S. champ Lombo and Ellis Park Derby winner Gray Magician. TJCIS PPS

Only Emotions (Distorted Humor) makes her first start over the grass for Paulo Lobo. The Bonne Chance Farm homebred is out of the unraced Golden Ballad (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who is also responsible for her 4-year-old full-brother Balladeer–winner earlier this month in Santa Anita's GII John Henry Turf Championship S. Only Emotion's dam is a half-sister to GI Belmont S. and GI Breeders' Cup Classic hero Drosselmeyer (Distorted Humor). TJCIS PPS
