Rosie Napravnik captured her second consecutive leading jockey title at Keeneland.

Ken and Sarah Ramsey won nine races during the meet to collect their 14th leading owner title and tie with T.A. Grissom for most overall titles won by an owner at Keeneland. They have won or shared six Spring Meet leading owner titles (2004, 2006, 2010-13) and eight Fall Meet titles (2000, 2002, 2007-09, 2012-14). The Ramseys received Eclipse Awards as outstanding owner and breeder in 2013 and as outstanding owner in 2004 and 2011.

Maggi Moss finished second in the owner standings with five wins.

The race for Fall Meet leading trainer and jockey went down to the wire.

Todd Pletcher and H. Graham Motion shared leading trainer honors with eight wins each.

This is the third Keeneland training title for six-time Eclipse Award winner Pletcher, who previously earned honors in the Spring of 2005 and 2008. Among Pletcher's wins was a victory by Carpe Diem in the Claiborne Breeders' Futurity.

Motion earned his first leading trainer title at Keeneland. His eight wins were boosted by a three-win day on Oct. 16, that was topped by a victory in the Sycamore (G3) with Holiday Star. Motion also won the JPMorgan Chase Jessamine on Oct. 8 with Rainha Da Bateria.

Trainers Kellyn Gorder and Wesley Ward tied for third with seven wins each.

Rosie Napravnik won 16 races to capture her second consecutive Fall Meet riding title. Highlighting her performance were three-win days on Oct. 16 and Oct. 22. On Oct. 16, Napravnik won the Sycamore with Holiday Star.

Corey Lanerie won the closing-day Hagyard Fayette (G2) with Pick of the Litter to finish second in the jockey standings with 15 wins. Julien Leparoux was third with 14 victories.
