Inaugural running of Catlaunch lures 11


Catlaunch, a multiple Ohio champion for Scioto Farms, will be honored with the inaugural running of a stakes named for him Sunday at ThistleDown. A field of 11 older Ohio-accredited horses will contest the 1 1/16-mile $50,000 Catlaunch, named for the 13-year-old horse who earned more than $1 million while racing almost exclusively in Ohio.
