Monmouth: D'cats Meow Tries Stakes Foes

Monmouth Park’s leading trainer Jane Cibelli says she claimed D’cats Meow for $20,000 three starts back because she felt the 4-year-old filly could step up and win a non-winners-of-one allowance.

 

When the daughter of D’wildcat proved Cibelli correct on July 24, the conditioner tried even tougher non-winners-of-two company next out.

 

D’cats Meow was again up for the challenge.

 

On Saturday, Stretch Run Racing Stable LLP’s D’cats Meow will attempt stakes company for the first time in the $60,000 Mongo Queen.

 

“We’re trying the stakes because of her pedigree,” Cibelli said.  “She’s a half to [Grade 1-placed] Pomeroy’s Pistol so to get her some black type will really increase her value.  We’ve already been offered a large amount of money for her, and to get her some black type would just make those offers increase.”

 

Paco Lopez, aboard for D’cats Meow’s two most-recent wins, will be back aboard on Saturday.

 

“One of the reasons I claimed her was because I noticed that she was being sent to the front in a lot of her races,” Cibelli said.  “I wondered what would happen if we got her to drop off the pace a little bit.  That was kind of a planned strategy from the beginning.”

 

D’cats Meow will face five rivals in Saturday’s Mongo Queen and break from post position No. 5.

 

An earner of over $150,000 in her 16-race career, D’cats Meow boasts a four-furlong breeze in :49 2/5 since her most-recent win on August 19.

 

“She’s been training excellent,” Cibelli said.  “Really, really well.”
