LEXINGTON, Ky. – Load another one onto that westbound plane, Ramsey Farm.

Kitten Kaboodle, the only maiden in a field of 10 2-year-old fillies, got through a rail opening after straightening for home and galloped to an emphatic score Wednesday in the Jessamine Stakes, giving Ken and Sarah Ramsey yet another homebred graded stakes winner and another starter for the Nov. 1-2 Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita.

Ridden by Alan Garcia, Kitten Kaboodle was a 4 3/4-length winner of the 23rd running of the Grade 3, $150,000 Jessamine, a 1 1/16-mile turf race that served as the final Win and You’re In event of the Keeneland fall meet. Zinzay was second, another half-length before Courtesan in third.

Kitten Kaboodle, by the red-hot Ramsey sire Kitten’s Joy, had finished second in two maiden races over the Saratoga turf before being transferred into the care of Chad Brown. She runs next in the $1 million BC Juvenile Fillies Turf.

“This filly really ran big today,” said Ken Ramsey, whose far-flung stable is expected to have at least six Breeders’ Cup starters. “We’re excited about her, just like we’re excited about a lot of these Kitten’s Joys.”

Kitten Kaboodle returned $9.40 after finishing in 1:44.01 over a firm turf.

The $2 exacta (3-6) paid $33.60; the $1 trifecta (3-6-2) returned $115.20; and the 10-cent superfecta (3-6-2-8) was worth $40.61.

Ontrack attendance on a perfect weather day was 12,186.

Kitten's Joy is truly amazing when you consider that he's been bred to mostly Ramsey's Claimer Mares. Imagine if he was being bred to Darley's or Lanes End Stock.

Is it just my imagination or is Kitten's Joy producing a most unusually large amount of stakes winners?

I think this Breeders Cup might end up being called "The Kittens Cup".....Everything Ramsey runs,that is not "Chalk" seems to be in the Hunt!!........Plus he like to "Bet,with Both Hands"........It should be Fun!!!! "Lets Get Lucky"
