High Wire Kitten Working Well for Ward

Eclipse Award-winning owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey will be represented by High Wire Kitten in the $100,000 Herecomesthebride Stakes (G3) tomorrow at Gulfstream Park. The 3-year-old filly is a homebred daughter of the Ramseys' champion stallion Kitten's Joy, and she will attempt to further their lead in the owners' standings at the current Championship Meet at Gulfstream Park.            

High Wire Kitten showed promise in her first two starts at Keeneland last October before putting it all together with a determined effort to earn her diploma over the Gulfstream grass on December 22. Eight days later, she reappeared in an optional claiming event on the Polytrack at Turfway Park and came away with another hard-fought success. Trainer Wesley Ward freshened her up afterwards.            

"We gave her quite a bit of time to get back on her feet," Ward said. "Traveling back and forth to Kentucky knocked her out a little bit. We waited until she was bucking and squealing and feeling her oats, so to speak, before we started her work schedule. Once that happened, she's been great ever since. I had been looking at (the Herecomesthebride) long range, but I was waiting for her to tell me that that was the right thing to do."            

High Wire Kitten, whose late-season exploits helped Kitten's Joy seal the leading sire title for 2013, recorded a quartet of five-furlong breezes on the turf at Palm Meadows in February ahead of her stakes bow in Sunday's nine-furlong feature.            

"She's really been working very well up at Palm Meadows," Ward added. "Any time you're in a stakes here, it's obviously going to be tough, but I'm very hopeful she's going to run a good race."
