LEXINGTON, Ky.— Jerry Caroom and Jeffrey Lambert’s Girl Named Charlie overtook front-running Blissful at the sixteenth pole en route to a 1¼ -length victory in the featured $125,324 Four Star Purse on the final Sunday of Keeneland’s Spring Meet. 

Trained by Lindsay Schultz and ridden by Florent Geroux for his second win of the day, Girl Named Charlie raced in second place for all of the 1 1/8-mile race on firm turf against seven older fillies and mares before making her winning move. Her time for the race was 1:46.91.

Girl Named Charlie, a Keeneland sales graduate, is a 4-year-old daughter of Maclean’s Music out of the Dynaformer mare Dynarama who was bred in Kentucky by Don Alberto Corporation. She entered today’s race with one victory in three previous starts this year at Fair Grounds in New Orleans.

The Keeneland performance was worth $77,578 for Girl Named Charlie, who improved her record to 15-4-1-0 with earnings of $222,652.

Girl Named Charlie paid $14.12, $7.66 and $4.44. Blissful, ridden by Brian Hernandez Jr, returned $12.68 and $6.46 and finished three-quarters of a length ahead of favored Immensitude (FR), who paid $3.12 to show under Junior Alvarado.

Jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. won four races Sunday to push his Spring Meet total to 14 victories and move into second place on the rider standings behind Tyler Gaffalione with 15 wins. Two of Ortiz’s wins were aboard horses owned and trained by David Jacobson. Three days remain in the season. …

Trainer Jeff Greenhill recorded the 700th victory of his career when Richard Neises’ Sensible Choice captured the fourth race by a nose at odds of 29-1.

Racing resumes at Keeneland on Wednesday for the final three days of the Spring Meet. The eight-race card begins at 1 p.m. ET.

Keeneland will offer a Pick 6 carryover of $56,441.

@PastTheWire I was moved. Had to put the “all 1’s” in the profile name. It’s utterly brilliant.
