Kitten's Point Eyes BC Juvenile Fillies Turf

Augustin Stable’s Kitten’s Point, who came up a nose short of catching Moonwalk in Thursday’s JPMorgan Chase Jessamine (G3), came out of the race in good order, according to Dave Rock, assistant to trainer Graham Motion.

The JPMorgan Chase Jessamine was a “Win and You’re In” race for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) to be run November 2 at Santa Anita. That race remains under consideration for Kitten’s Point, a Kitten’s Joy filly who broke her maiden at first asking on September 22 at Presque Isle Downs.

“It (the Breeders’ Cup) is possible,” Rock said. “We will give it a few days, but with another few inches, she would be going for sure.”

James Covello’s Oscar Party was the fourth filly in the four-horse photo at the wire Thursday, finishing a head in back of Moonwalk and a nose out of third behind Summer of Fun.

“I think she was the best horse in the race,” trainer Wayne Catalano said of Oscar Party, a daughter of Dixie Union. Oscar Party ran the final sixteenth of a mile in 5.91 seconds that was a couple hundredths of a second faster than Moonwalk (5.94) or Kitten’s Point (5.94), according to Trakus, which records individual sectional times and distance covered for races at Keeneland.

“We will talk it (the Breeders’ Cup) over, but I don’t know if she could get in,” Catalano said.
