Keeneland Lover Holiday for Kitten Tops Madison

In Saturday's Grade I Madison at Keeneland, which will go as the eighth race with a 3:35 p.m. post time, Holiday for Kitten will seek her third stakes victory at Keeneland.

Trained by Wesley Ward, Holiday for Kitten won the Giant’s Causeway Stakes in April 2011 and came back that fall to win the Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes (G2). Holiday for Kitten, who will make her 2013 debut, will break from post position three and be ridden by Elvis Trujillo.

Also figuring to attract consideration from patrons is Fawzi Abdulla Nass’ Shumoos.

Trained by Ben Cecil, Shumoos finished second against males in her U.S. debut in the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint at Churchill Downs. Shumoss did not return to the races for more than 14 months, winning a sprint at Santa Anita in January. Third in her most recent start in the Las Flores Stakes (G3) in March, Shumoos will break from post position seven and be ridden by Garrett Gomez.

The field for the Madison, from the rail out, is as follows: Byrama (GB) (Joel Rosario), Queen’s Award (Alan Garcia), Holiday for Kitten (Trujillo), Kune Kune (GB) (Corey Lanerie), Last Full Measure (Corey Nakatani), Jamaican Smoke (Julien Leparoux), Shumoos (Gomez), Drama Drama (Francisco Torres), Dr. Diamonds Prize (Miguel Mena) and Fantasy of Flight (Javier Castellano). All starters will carry 118 pounds.
