Pataky Kid Works for Breeders' Futurity

Swifty Farms’ Pataky Kid, winner of the Arlington-Washington Futurity (G3) and undefeated in two starts on Polytrack, worked five furlongs in 1:00.40 on Monday in preparation for a run in Saturday’s $400,000 Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (G1), a “Win and You’re In” race for the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) to be run November 3 at Santa Anita.

Working on his own before light rain began to fall, Pataky Kid posted fractions of :12.40, :24.20, :36, :48.40 and galloped out six furlongs in 1:15.20.

“He looked like he had wings out there,” trainer Tom Proctor said with a laugh. “He went really good and Paco Lopez will ride him Saturday.”

An Oklahoma-bred by Rockport Harbor, Pataky Kid debuted at Churchill Downs on July 1 and closed well to finish third in an 11-horse field at 42-1 odds. On August  9, as a 5-2 chance, Pataky Kid surprised no one in breaking his maiden.

“He ran a good race at Churchill and I guess he was bet down at Arlington because of that race,” Proctor said of Pataky Kid, who arrived at Keeneland last Wednesday from Chicago. “I don’t think the surface matters. I think he can run on anything.”

Pataky Kid is a graduate of the 2011 September Yearling Sale.
