Keeneland kicks off its 2016 Spring Meet this weekend and the highlight on Saturday is, of course, the Blue Grass Stakes!

The 1 1/8-mile contest offers a guaranteed berth into the Kentucky Derby (G1) thanks to the 100 points awarded to the winner, and has everything you need to pick that winner, including FREE PPs, promotions and the Big Apple-Blue Grass Pick 4.

But Blue Grass Day isn’t about just one lone race as Keeneland has carded a fun-filled afternoon for fans!

So check out your one-stop-shop for all the handicapping reports from Keeneland on Saturday.
