Analysis:
CATER TO KITTEN took some money for his career debut, and should have gained valuable experience from the effort. He was bumped at the start before making a serious four wide bid on the final turn. Nobody was getting to runaway winner Jealous Again that day, but Cater to Kitten ran on well to be second, and can improve off that showing.
YOGAROO is one of the rare Wesley Ward-trained babies that didn't graduate at first asking, but the California-bred gelding showed speed at Gulfstream, and may be the one to catch here.
BAIL BABY BAIL is out of a full sister to the great Housebuster, and shows some solid works for excellent connections.
LETSGETITONMON goes out for the potent debut combination of Steve Asmussen and Shaun Bridgmohan. TRUE TO THE LADIES has some speed in the pedigree, but will have to break well from the inside post. NOON WHISTLE sports the same breeding 'nick' as graded winner Private Vow, and the gray gelding's trainer is having an excellent year. ZIP IN TIME (250K Pletcher purchase) and GRAND SLAM ANDRE (Asmussen early foal) both look like logical contenders. The former gave a "good, sharp move," according to the Keeneland Clocker report when working a half-mile out of the gate in 46 flat on April 19. ANGUS KHAN may want more ground. IRON ROD may use a race. STRICTLY SOCIETY sports a nice pedigree, but this barn usually gives them a race or two before they are fully cranked.

Selections:
1. Cater to Kitten
2. Yogaroo
3. Bail Baby Bail

The Play:
Cater to Kitten to Win at 7-2 odds or greater

Analysis:
It looks as if many of these babies worked in tandem with stablemates from the first division so make sure you double-check the result of that race for more clues.
GRAND SLAM PETE shared the Churchill Downs worktab with Letsgetitonmon (Steve Asmussen-trained firster in Race 1) on two occasions. The Grand Slam colt is a half-brother to the fleet Miss Mary Pat, and the barn is all-world with debut runners.
NOBLE'S PROMISE was "slightly better at the wire" than Bail Baby Bail (Ken McPeek's firster in Race 1), according to the Keeneland Clocker Report for April 16. The Cuvee colt is bred both sides for speed.
RED OAK RIDGE was slightly outmoved by unraced stablemate Everyday Hero, according to the Keeneland Clocker report for March 31, but this Sky Mesa runner shows some solid overall drills, and looms a price for underrated barn.
DOC THUNDERBOLT has a good deal of speed in his pedigree, and Mr. Lukas usually gears them up for the boutique meets. CHINA "continues to improve" for Todd Pletcher, according to the Keeneland Clocker Report for April 19. The Tale of the Cat colt finished "two lengths to the good of Halo Coco." The April 13 drill was "a good gate workout, in front of Zip in Time and Zapster." Zip in Time is entered in today's first race for Pletcher. China has a lot going for him on paper, and wouldn't be a surprise at all. CASTANEDA was "well reserved from the gate" for the April 14 breeze, and Asmussen named his go-to rider, Shaun Bridgmohan, to pilot. The previous workout went in company with Lady Silver Song, an unraced maiden, and it was termed "in hand from the gate." KING KITTEN goes out for an amazing first-out trainer, but the Kitten's Joy babies could use a little more ground. DASHING TOM must hustle from the far outside. METALLIC MIST couldn't keep up with unraced juvenile filly Credit Crunch on March 21, according to the published clocker report. STUDLEY doesn't show a published workout in the last 19 days. HOOLIHAN may need a start.
