Kiddie List will spotlight the top workers and blue bloods breezing four
furlongs and farther, plus some entries and results. I’ll cover the New York, Kentucky, California
and Florida tracks, and occasionally Arlington, Fair Hill and Monmouth. If a particularly well bred baby shows up
at another track, I’ll include that one as well. Due to the enormous number of
juveniles, some of these names may show up only once or twice. You can find more of this season’s two year
olds on the 2015
Kentucky Derby Contenders and 2015 Kentucky
Oaks Contenders lists.
STAKES WINNERS RECAP
Cavorting (Bernardini - Promenade Girl, by Carson City) (F)
$360K KEENOV13; Spotted on the Kiddie List before her first start, Cavorting is now a perfect two for two and a
graded stakes winner after her easy 1 ½ length victory in the Adirondack. Cavorting is a daughter of the 2006 Maryland
Champion Older Mare. This is the distaff family of the multiple graded stakes
winners ANOTHER REVIEW (Californian
S., etc.), DANCE COLONY (Adirondack
S. 2nd in Gazelle), Swaps hero BLUESKIESNRAINBOWS,
and Santa Barbara Handicap heroine NO
REVIEW. The fourth dam Dumfries is a
blue hen. Cavorting should stretch out to 1 1/6 miles without a problem.
Saratoga Special (G-2)
I Spent It (Super Saver - Rateeba, by Sky Mesa) (C) $600K
FTFMAR14; is another Kiddie List graduate.
He continues to live up to his hefty price tag and like Cavorting, I
Spent It is undefeated in his first two starts after a 2 ¾ length win in the
Saratoga Special. I Spent It’s dam is a
half to multiple juvenile stakes winner and sire ZAVTA and San Rafael Stakes (G-3) placed Cocky. This is the distaff
line of sire DIXIE UNION. I Spent It should handle 1 1/16 miles.
PRIVATE PROSPECT (Discreet Cat - Private Deputy, by
Private Terms) (C) $28K KEESEP12; is
undefeated in three starts, after holding off Lucky Player by a neck in the Prairie
Meadows Juvenile Mile on August 9.

the Prairie Gold Juvenile Stakes. Private
Prospect is a half to the stakes placed turf sprinter Privately Approved (With Approval). Their dam is also stakes placed. Private Prospect

Sorrento Stakes (G-2)
SUNSET GLOW (Exchange Rate - Perfectforthepart,
by Dynaformer) (F) $140K KEESEP13; has a 4-2-2-0 race record. The well-traveled filly was second in her
debut at Presque Isle Downs before winning at Belmont. Trainer Wesley Ward took her to England where
Sunset Glow placed second in the Albany Stakes (Group 3) at Ascot. Three months later, she jetted to a 3 ¼ length
win in the Sorrento Stakes at Del Mar. The
pretty gray filly is the first foal born of her stakes placed dam. There’s little blacktype in this distaff
family, although the third dam ANDESTINE is a Grade 1 winner.
Florida Sire Desert
LEAP YEAR LUCK
(Hear No Evil -
Lucky of Course, by Awesome of Course) (F) won her maiden in the Desert Vixen
Stakes on August 9, leaping to a 4 ¾ length victory after previously missing by
a neck in a maiden race. The Jacks or Better Farm homebred owns the only
blacktype in three generations of her female family.
Florida Sire Dr. Fager
SING PRAISES (Hear No Evil - Sacred Psalm, by
Awesome of Course) (C) has won two of three starts, including the Birdonthewire
Stakes and a front-running 1 ¾ score in the Dr. Fager Stakes on August 9 for
the same connections as Leap Year Luck. Sing Praises is the first foal born of his stakes placed dam. The colt should stretch out to 1 1/6 miles without a problem.
DIXIE TWIST (Indian Charlie - Dixie Talking, by
Dixieland Band) (F) $180K KEESEP13; fought hard throughout the race and
prevailed by a short head over Roaming in the Ontario Debutante on August 9. Trainer Mark Casse unveiled the filly in the Shady

Miss Mandate (Pioneerof the Nile -
Baba's Mandate, by Full Mandate) (F) $145K (RNA) FTKOCT13; hasn’t shown much in either start. Pioneerof
The Nile’s babies are 0-8 over the Del Mar polytrack. Miss Mandate’s dam is a full sister to the
top handicap horse RON THE GREEK and
the second dam Flambeau is a full sister to the dam of multiple Grade 1 placed MUSKET MAN. Miss Mandate may be slow to mature and the
distance should help. Watch for her when
she switches back to dirt.
Redshirt (Distorted Humor -
Perceive, by A.P. Indy) (F) This Darley homebred was a good third in her debut
at Del Mar. Her unraced dam is a half
to Nashua winner ETCHED and Sham
winner OUT OF BOUNDS. The Second dam
is BC Distaff winner UNBRIDLED ELAINE.
Distorted Humor is a superior Polysire.
Hone In (Smart Strike - Direct Line, by
Tiznow) (F) didn’t show much sprinting in her debut at Woodbine. She has a slow-maturing, two turn pedigree.
Her dam is a stakes winning miler and a half sister to ADIEU, winner of the Frizzette at two and Delaware Oaks at three.
She’s also a half to stakes winners RAPPORT
and SPEAK WISELY, plus the dam of
multiple stakes winning sprinter LAURIE’S

Race 3 | ALW 6 ½ F |
(Midshipman - Lucky Flyer, by Fusaichi Pegasus) (F) $60K OBSAPR14; After winning her debut,
she was second in the 5 ½ furlong Cassidy Stakes. She’s a half sister to English
stakes winner YEAGER (Medaglia d'Oro). Their second dam BEAUTIFUL CRAZY won the Hawthorne Oaks and fourth dam is Kentucky
Oaks heroine LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY.
Tierra Dorada (Colonel John - K. O. Kitty, by
Tale of the Cat) (F) $20K KEESEP13 ;
needed three races to win her maiden, which she did in her last start,
by a neck over eventual Desert Vixen heroine LEAP YEAR LUCK. Tierra
Dorada is a half to multiple stakes placed Syriana's
Song (Indian Charlie), otherwise, there is no blacktype in the first few
generations of her female family. Tierra
Dorada has a slower developing pedigree and should relish two turns.
Artistic Touch (Artie Schiller - Bag
of Stars, by Devil's Bag) (F) $60K OBSMAR14;
After two finishes off of the board, she outclassed maidens by a neck in a dirt
sprint. Gennadi Dorochenko wheeled her
back a few weeks later in the Cassidy Stakes where the daughter of Breeders’
Cup Mile Champ Artie Schiller finished fourth. This
filly has the pedigree to excel over the turf. Her damsire sire is a Champion
full brother to Champion Glorious Song and top sire Saint Ballado. Artistic Touch’s second damsire Nijinsky won
the English Triple Crown. Artistic Touch has similar breeding to the stakes
placed Actionontwo, as both are by
Artie Schiller out of mares by Devil’s Bag. That one is a winner over turf and stakes
placed over Polytrack. Keep an eye on Artistic
Touch is she makes a start over the lawn.

stakes winning sprinter TOO MUCH
BLING, plus listed/restricted stakes winners
FOR ROSES, BARNSY, LITTLEBITABLING
and stakes placed Got
The second dam ROSE
COLORED LADY is a stakes winner and a full sister
to a restricted multiple stakes winner. Scat Daddy’s babies are best over
turf/Poly. The pretty gray El Kabeir has some turf attributes
through Nijinsky, Lyphard, Green Desert and Cairo. His female family is filled with dirt
sprinters, so this is a likely place to start.
(Malibu Moon - Alpha Kitten, by Tale of the Cat) (C) $500K KEESEP13; He’s the first foal out of a Grade
2 stakes winner. His second dam is a
half sister to Matron Stakes (G-1) winner MARLYBONE.
That one bore two stakes winners. The Pletcher trainee could win at sprint
distances, but should be more comfortable at a mile and longer.
Bingley (Medaglia d'Oro - Funny Feeling, by
Distorted Humor) (C) $400K FTSAUG13; He’s the first foal out of a stakes
winning sprinter. His dam is a full
sister to Malibu Stakes (G-1) hero JIMMY

second dam is Grade 1 winner HOOKEDONTHEFEELIN.
Multiple Grade 1 winner MIDNIGHT LUCKY
is also part of this female family.
Bingly might handle sprints, but like many in here, he’ll appreciate
