Belmont Park: Kauai Katie to return in Victory Ride


ELMONT, N.Y. - While Dreaming of Julia will strut her stuff this Saturday in the Mother Goose, her stablemate Kauai Katie will return in next Saturday’s Grade 3, $150,000 Victory Ride Stakes here at six furlongs.

Kauai Katie finished third in the Grade 1 Acorn on May 27, and while trainer Todd Pletcher’s major summer targets for the filly are the Prioress and Test – both Grade 1 sprints at Saratoga – he plans to utilize the Victory Ride as well.

“It’s not out of the question she could run in all three,” Pletcher said Wednesday. “She’s doing well and maintaining her condition, so we’re looking at here and the Prioress if everything continues to go well.”
