Celestial Kitten Needs Wake Up Call

Fortunately for trainer Ben Cecil, Celestial Kitten saves her best for game day. The 3-year-old Kitten’s Joy filly shows little interest in serious preparation for her races, preferring to save her best for race day.


“She’s very lazy in the mornings,” said Cecil, who supervised a bullet 1:14 2/5 turf drill for six furlongs on Oct. 2. “I wouldn’t tell you it was the prettiest work,” he said. “She never does anything in the mornings, but she seems to wake up in a race.


“When I worked her between the San Clemente and the Del Mar Oaks, she didn’t show me anything. But she ran all right in the Del Mar Oaks (fifth, beaten three lengths). It seems to be when there are horses around (her), she does wake up. She conserves herself.”
