Miss Kinderhook will have more fitness to call on Friday when gut-check time arrives in a first-level allowance route for 2-year-old fillies that tops the Fair Grounds card. She will be making her second two-turn start in the race following a close-up fourth in the $69,000 Happy Ticket at 1 1/16 miles at Louisiana Downs on Sept. 25.\r\n&ldquo;She was very gritty,&rdquo; said Rick Jackson, who trains Miss Kinderhook. &ldquo;She was head to head for the lead and just didn&rsquo;t want to give it up. She just got plain tired, and the horses that beat her, all three came out of route races. She wasn&rsquo;t ready to go that far, but it&rsquo;s the only spot we had to run her in, and she ran awful big. We weren&rsquo;t training for that race. We were expecting to run her three-quarters and the race didn&rsquo;t go.&rdquo;\r\nThe mile and 40-yard allowance Friday could produce starters for next month&rsquo;s $100,000 Silverbulletday. It will go as the fourth race on a 10-race card that drew 84 entries. A field of five is set to start, with the chief threat to Miss Kinderhook being Arlington Park maiden winner Crepe Myrtle.\r\nMiss Kinderhook is a promising sort for the partnership of Jac Mac Stable and Carlton Formby. She is a daughter of Breeders&rsquo; Cup Classic winner Pleasantly Perfect, while her dam, Belong to Sea, won the Grade 3 Miss Preakness. Miss Kinderhook took a maiden special weight sprint by more than seven lengths in her second career start Sept. 5, then was beaten just a length in the Happy Ticket. The stakes was run over the closing weekend of the Louisiana Downs meet, and following it Miss Kinderhook was freshened some on a farm, said Jackson.\r\n&ldquo;She&rsquo;s progressed forwardly, so I&rsquo;m expecting her to run big,&rdquo; he said.\r\nJames Graham has the mount on Miss Kinderhook, who will break from the rail Friday.\r\n&ldquo;She&rsquo;s pretty quick,&rdquo; Jackson said. &ldquo;She should be on the pace or pushing the pace.&rdquo;\r\nCrepe Myrtle showed more speed than usual in her last start, the $150,000 Jessamine at Keeneland on Oct. 14. She raced about a length off the lead for much of the mile and a sixteenth stakes before finishing sixth to future Grade 2 Golden Rod winner Kathmanblu. Prior to that start, Crepe Myrtle, who is a half-sister to four-time stakes winner Barcola, had won a maiden special weight route at Arlington.\r\nRosie Napravnik has the mount for John Adger and trainer Michael Stidham.
