Fear the Kitten Joins Kentucky Derby 2013 Field

Fear the Kitten has been added to the prospective Kentucky Derby 2013 field following the defections of Code West, Govenor Charlie, Tiz a Minister, and Winning Cause.

Golden Soul also moved into the Top 20 on the Derby Points Leaderboard.

Fear the Kitten, trained by Mike Maker, is 2-for-7 with lifetime earnings of $160,715. He has accumulated six Derby Points and Alan Garcia will ride him on the first Saturday in May.  

Fear the Kitten broke his maiden at Keeneland in his career debut last fall and scored again in his second career start at Churchill Downs. He completed his juvenile campaign with a 5th place finish in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes.

As a 3-year-old, Fear the Kitten is 0-for-4 but finished 3rd in the Lecomte Stakes and 2nd in the Southwest Stakes. He finished 5th in the Spiral Stakes and occupied that same spot in his last start in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland.

Stretch runner Fear the Kitten, by Kitten's Joy, out of Dynaformer mare Dynarhythm, needs pace help and will try to get involved late in the Derby.
