Kauai Katie in Excellent Condition

Kauai Katie returned from her victory in Sunday’s Grade 2 Adirondack in “excellent” condition, trainer Todd Pletcher reported this morning.

 

“Really good,” said Pletcher of the 2-year-old Stonestreet filly.

 

Kauai Katie is now 2-for-2 at the Spa, having broken her maiden on opening day, but it is unlikely she will try to turn the hat trick in the Grade 1 Spinaway on September 2.

 

“Chances are we don’t run her three times this meet, but nothing is etched in stone,” said Pletcher.

 

The trainer added that Drum Roll, who finished fourth in the Grade 2 Saratoga Special after pressing the pace behind Spurious Precision, also returned in good form and is possible for the Grade 2 Three Chimneys Hopeful on September 3.

 

“He seemed to come back well,” said Pletcher. “He tried hard. It was a good effort for his second start.”

 

Pletcher sent out several workers for upcoming turf stakes, including Turbo Compressor (4f, turf, 47.22) for Saturday’s Grade 1, $600,000 Sword Dancer Invitational and Disposablepleasure (4f, turf, 47.33) for Sunday’s Grade 2 Woodford Reserve Lake Placid. Medolina, who is also heading to the Lake Placid, went a half-mile in 50.03.

 

Turbo Compressor, 3-0-1 from five starts this year including a front-running victory in the Grade 1 United Nations last time out, will be making his first start at 1 ½ miles in the Sword Dancer.

 

“He worked well,” said Pletcher. “He seems to be handling 1 3/8 miles fine, so 1 ½ miles would seem to be in his scope.”
