Maryland's Horse of the Year is Ben's Cat

King T. Leatherbury’s homebred gelding Ben's Cat swept three divisional categories–older male, turf runner, and sprinter–and was named Maryland-bred Horse of the Year of 2011 in the annual poll conducted by the Maryland Horse Breeders Association.


The richest Maryland-bred runner of 2011 with earnings of $588,250, Ben’s Cat (Parker's Storm Cat—Twofox, by Thirty Eight Paces) made 11 starts in his second year of competition at age 5, all in stakes company, and won six times. His biggest score came in the $350,000 Turf Monster Handicap (gr. IIIT) at Parx Racing Sept. 5 when he defeated 10 others in the five-furlong turf sprint, including the previous year’s Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (gr. IIT) winner Chamberlain Bridge.
