Kauai Katie Possible for Victory Ride

Kauai Katie’s long-range plans include a pair of Grade 1 races at Saratoga Race Course, but first up is a possible start in the Grade 3, $150,000 Victory Ride for 3-year-old fillies on June 29 at Belmont Park.

 

“She is scheduled to breeze [on Sunday]. We’ll see how that goes and we’ll make a decision [on whether she is running in the Victory Ride] after that,” said Todd Pletcher, who trains Kauai Katie for Stonestreet Stables.

 

Kauai Katie, a three-time graded stakes winner, was third, beaten seven lengths by Midnight Lucky, in the Grade 1, one-mile Acorn on May 27. Pletcher said Kauai Katie likely will focus on sprint races this summer such as Saratoga’s Grade 1, $300,000 Prioress on July 27 and the Grade 1, $500,000 Test on August 24. The Victory Ride is six furlongs, while the Prioress and Test are seven furlongs.

 

“We’re thinking about the Prioress and the Test, and we’re trying to see if the Victory Ride sets us up for that,” said Pletcher. “Those have been the target races for her for a while.”

 

Pletcher added that both Gary Barber’s Percussion and Burning Sands Stable’s San Pablo are under consideration for the Grade 2, $350,000 Suburban Handicap on July 6. In their most recent starts, Percussion was second in the Grade 2 Brooklyn Handicap on June 7 after leading in deep stretch and San Pablo defeated Hymn Book and Mucho Macho Man in the Criminal Type overnight stakes on June 14.
