Congrats to Qatar Racing's Sheikh Fahad, Brendan Walsh and Tyler Gaffalion on Guildsman's win in our closing-day $500,000, Grade 3 Franklin-Simpson Stakes. Said Sheikh Fahad's representative Fergus Galvin after Qatar Racing won stakes for second straight year: "It certainly made Sheikh Fahad a big fan of Kentucky Downs. He’s already wanting to stock up the stable to point to the meeting next year.” (Coady Photography photo)
