Yaddo Cat takes Permian Basin at Zia Park


Yaddo Cat became a stakes winner on Saturday when she drew clear to a 4 1/4 length win in the $58,500 Permian Basin at Zia Park in Hobbs, N.M.

Ms. Glacken finished second, while it was another length and a quarter back in third to Shezmorethanready.

Yaddo Cat ($4.40) dueled with Ms. Glacken through the opening quarter in the six-furlong race for 2-year-old fillies, overtook her, and went on to cover the distance over a fast track in 1:10.20.

"She just kicked away in the stretch," said Casey Lambert, who was aboard Yaddo Cat for trainer Steve Asmussen.

Yaddo Cat earned $35,100 for the win, which was her second in five career starts. Her earnings now stand at $80,370. She is a daughter of Forest Wildcat and races for Heiligbrodt Racing Stable.
