The Kitty Kat Was Barking!

Kat Dog wins her debut at GP

Kat Dog the 2year old BC nominated filly out of Kapa Hapa Kat wins in her debut at Gulfstream! Sired by the infamous Dogs Bachelor Party she became the 35th winner from the sire. Showing signs of early speed she shot out of the gate and had a 1/2 length lead on Sunday Morning. At the 1/4 pole it was Explosive Web who had a nose up on Kat Dog. But J Lezcano laid down the crack of the whip and got Kat Dog on top. The results were delayed for a minute as the judges looked over the photo finish and deemed it a dead heat with Kat Dog and Explosive Web. Congrats to Kopites and Negdog Racing and thier people. Who do you think won? Looks like the 2 has a nose ahead of the 10….

And There Off!

Questions & Answers with Kopites


As we prepare for the upcoming 2012 G3 Transylvania Stakes at KEE I got to the track early to ask a few questions with some of the owners. After talking with Mb Stables I walked down a couple more stables and ran into Kopites the owner of Johnny Appleseed sitting in the 8 spot. After breaking his maiden he went straight into stakes competition including the G2 San Felipe where he lead most of the race and gave way down the stretch.

I asked Kopites these questions:

How do you feel your chances are in the race?

“if I am honest, I dont rate my chances at all, but my philosophy is to give te horses a chance, they may just suprise you, Pretty ankee for instance!!

Who do you think is the tuffest competition?

“Some nice types, 2 I tried to buy, Lord of Tara and Prince of Fools, but I am going with Wild Alliance to beat those 2″

If you win this race what are your plans for in the next race?

“I really doubt he will get in the top 5, so I think I will be dropping him a level and stay on the turf at 1Mile or 1 1/16th”

Thanks to Kopites for his input on the race!
