Sharp Kitty must overcome outside post in Betsy Ross Stakes


Sharp Kitty couldn’t have had a better trip when she won the $75,000 Christmas Past at Gulfstream Park in her first start with winners June 11. With Matthew Rispoli aboard, she broke well from the inside post in the 1 1/16-mile race for 3-year-old fillies and was in a good position early as she hugged the rail while sitting just off an honest pace. Approaching the half-mile pole, she burst through a gap along the rail, and after briefly dueling with Temple Fur, she drew away to a convincing win.
