Big Blue Kitten - 2011 National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame (G2)

Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey's homebred Big Blue Kitten rolled into the Grade 2, $150000 National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame on a four-race win streak, and with a powerful run along the rail in the lane made it five in a row Friday at Saratoga Race Course. The lone runner in the field of seven 3-year-olds who had never previously appeared in a stakes race, the bay son of 2004 Champion Turf Horse Kitten's Joy went off as the 9-2 third choice in the wagering and won by 1 ¼ lengths. Under leading Saratoga rider John Velazquez, he completed the 1 1/16-mile turf race in 1:42.91. Big Blue Kitten paid $11 for a $2 win bet. Perregaux, the longest shot on the board at 19-1, ran strongly inside the sixteenth pole and finished second, a half-length in front of Humble and Hungry. In the winner's circle after the race, a jubilant Kenneth Ramsey reveled in watching a colt that steadily climbed the ladder from $35000 maiden claimers reach such heights.
