Thistledown: Another Freddy favored


NORTH RANDALL, Ohio - Another Freddy will be favored in a field of nine Ohio-bred 2-year-olds - eight males and one filly - in the $40,000 Cleveland Kindergarten Stakes at 5 1/2 furlongs.

A son of Editor's Note, Another Freddy was unplaced after a rough trip in his last race, the Kentucky Breeders' Cup at Churchill May 26.

Another Freddy is co-highweighted with Catch My Cat at 118 pounds. Ramon Rechy will ride Another Freddy for trainer Kris Nemann.

Catch My Cat has started twice at River Downs. He won his last start by 10 lengths in front-running fashion going five furlongs. His regular rider, Jodie Fortner, will be aboard for trainer William Napier.

Maliciousintention is another speedball. He dueled for the lead going five furlongs in a $20,000 maiden claimer at Churchill Downs in his last start. He is weighted at 115, and Jeffrey Skerrett will ride for trainer Tim Hamm
