Animal Spirits Skips Town

Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence’s Animal Spirits spent just enough time at Keeneland on Sunday to grab the $90,000 first-place check from the Bourbon (G3) and then returned to trainer Al Stall Jr.’s barn at Churchill Downs.
 
“He came back here last night,” Stall said of the son of Arch, who broke his maiden with the half-length victory in the Bourbon. “He’s fine this morning.”
 
The Bourbon triumph has Stall thinking Breeders’ Cup, a stage on which he shone brightly last year with another son of Arch: Blame, who defeated Zenyatta in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1).
 
“We will certainly consider it if everything is fine,” Stall said of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) to be run November 5. “He’s a young turf horse, and at the Fair Grounds (meet that begins November 24) there is nothing for him. So we may take a shot (at the Breeders’ Cup) and then freshen him up.”
 
In other Bourbon news:
 
Wayne Catalano said runner-up Coalport came out of the race well and might make his next start in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf. The colt by Kitten’s Joy is a homebred racing for Ken and Sarah Ramsey, for whom Catalano won Friday’s Darley Alcibiades (G1) with Stephanie’s Kitten. A filly by Kitten’s Joy, she is to make her next start in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G2).
