Ken and Sarah Ramsey, among the leading owner/breeders in the nation for the past several years, are expected to have two representatives in the $300,000 Grade I Del Mar Oaks on Sunday, August 17.

Emotional Kitten, runner-up in the Grade I American Oaks on July 13 at Hollywood Park, has been training at Del Mar and will be joined by Kitten’s Dumplings, shipping in from Churchill Downs where she has been training since a victory in the Grade II Lake George Stakes at Saratoga.

Both are three-year-old daughters of Kitten’s Joy, the Ramseys’ 2004 Eclipse Award winner in the Male Turf category.

Also shipping in for the Oaks is Christophe Clement-trained Discreet Marq, a winner of her last two starts, the Grade II $200,000 Sands Point Stakes in May and a $100,0000 ungraded stakes on July 4.

Past The Midpoint, Looking Good

With 19 of the 37 racing days in the book – the end of Saturday’s fifth race marked the midpoint of the meeting – major economic indicators are mainly positive.

On track handle is up 7.9 percent with a daily average of $2,482,993. Overall handle is up 11.3 percent with a daily average of $12,759,058. On-track attendance is off 4.9 percent but with a healthy daily average of 18,060.

And field size, averaging 8.5 percent, is up from the equivalent 8.3 in 2012 and 8.1 in 2011.
