Kathmanblu Rallies to Sweetest Chant Victory

After romping to an open-length victory on dirt at Churchill Downs in her previous start, heavy favorite Kathmanblu cemented her credentials as a leading candidate for the $1-million Kentucky Oaks (G1) this spring with an easy victory on turf on Saturday in the $100,000 Sweetest Chant Stakes at Gulfstream Park.


The bay filly from the first crop of WinStar Farm stallion Bluegrass Cat rallied from 12 lengths off the pace under Julien Leparoux and shook free of a mild challenge from runner-up Excited at the eighth pole to win by a comfortable 1¼ lengths under a hand ride.


Trained by Ken McPeek for Five D Thoroughbreds and Wind River Stables, Kathmanblu covered one mile in 1:39.14 as the 1-to-2 favorite on a course rated as good. The victory was a demonstration of both talent and versatility following her visually impressive 8½-length tour de force win in the Golden Rod Stakes (G2) on November 27 at Churchill, a win that followed a game third-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G2) in a trouble trip earlier that month at the Louisville track.
