Holiday For Kitten Earns Breeders' Cup Spot

The victory by Holiday for Kitten represented the 100th Keeneland triumph for the Ramseys, who rank 10th all time in Keeneland victories and earned the 3-year-old filly a spot in the starting gate for the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (G1) to be run November 4 at Churchill Downs.

 

Trained by Wesley Ward and ridden by Kendrick Carmouche, Holiday for Kitten pressed the pace set by Rapport, who led the field through fractions of :21.96 and :44.61. Holiday for Kitten, winner of the Giant’s Causeway here in April, disposed of Rapport at midstretch and held off a late charge from Musical Romance by a head to complete the six furlongs on the main track in 1:08.72.

 

A homebred daughter of Kitten’s Joy, Holiday for Kitten improved her record to 11-4-2-2 and boosted her career bankroll to $271,945 with Saturday’s $120,000 check.

 

Holiday for Kitten returned $39.60, $17.20 and $7.80. Musical Romance, ridden by Juan Leyva, returned $9.40 and $4.60 in finishing three-quarters of a length ahead of favored Switch, who returned $2.60 to show under Joel Rosario.

 

Completing the field in order were Rapport, Indulgence, Shotgun Gulch, I Knot, Promised Mandate, Devil by Design, Dances With Ashley and Diamond Song.
