Kitzkaty: Good Enough To Break Maiden With Cal Breds and Clean Trip

A brutal trip for this two year old filly for Doug O’Neill in Friday’s third, a maiden special weight event at a mile on the turf for Cal breds. Off at 5/2 and bet down from a M/L of 6/1, she broke OK under hot riding Fresu from the inside, but then checked into the clubhouse turn when running up on a horse’s heels. She settled in 6th down the back side about six lengths off the pace. Fresu kept her on the fence throughout, tried to find a hole at the top of the lane, but nothing opened up. She never got a chance to run the entire length of the stretch and she idled in tight quarters all the way. This daughter of win early sire Sir Prancealot is good enough to break her maidens with Cal breds and just needs a little luck, along with a clean trip. This was just her 2nd start.

Generally horses that are on the Horses To Watch list ran into unexpected trouble, bad luck, and/or didn’t run the race we believe Kitzkaty was cabable of.  We expected that if Kitzkaty gets a good trip in their next start than we should see an improvement in Kitzkaty performance figures.  Use the performance figures earned in Kitzkaty last race (listed above) and compare them to the field and pars of Kitzkaty next start.  If Kitzkaty appears to have earned higher performance figures in the last race when running into trouble  as compared to the rest of the field’s expected perfomance in the upcoming race than there is a good chance that Kitzkaty will dominate the race.
