Sierra Leone charges from the back to win the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland – Orange County Register

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Sierra Leone bounced back from a tough entry at the gate and a tail race down the backstretch to overtake Just A Touch down the stretch and win the $1 million Blue Grass Stakes by 1 1/ 2 lengths Saturday at Keeneland. to qualify for the 150th Kentucky Derby next month.

The 8-5 favorite, one of three entrants trained by Chad Brown in the 10-horse field, overcame several challenges, starting with his entry at the No. 10 post, far to the outside. Sierra Leone appeared to be in position after holding out, then fell back a second time before finally stabilizing.

He trailed for much of the race as Top Conor, another Brown student, 15-1, and Just A Touch set the pace down the back stretch.
