Queen Elizabeth II Looks Sexy Already!

Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup

Kitten's DumplingsThe Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes is a Grade 1 event for 3 year old fillies going a distance of 11/8 miles over the turf with a purse of $400,000. The morning line favorite is Alterite who is coming off a Grade 1 win September 14 at Belmont. I really can’t talk intelligently about this horse (ok no cracks about my intelligence) because she comes from overseas and except for the lone win at Belmont I can’t say. She could be the next Zenyatta for all I know. Her speed  number for the Garden City was ok but we’ll see. She is carrying 121 for this race as are all the entries. The second choice in the ML is Kitten’s Dumplings who likes to run from off the pace. She recently won the Grade 2 Lake George and the Grade 3 Regret Stakes in the summer. She gets the services of Julien Leparoux today. Trainer Michael maker had this to say about her-

“We’ve been thinking about this race for a while. She’s put on some weight and gotten bigger and stronger than she’s ever been. She is doing outstanding, and we look for a big performance.”


I'm Already SexyThe morning line’s third choice is another feline, Emotional Kitten. She has been lightly raced and hasn’t won since May 17. She is a stalking sort and will probably lay just off the leaders in this one as well. Here is the way I see it. I believe there will be somewhat of a speed duel between Leigh Court and I’m Already Sexy. However I believe that I’m Already Sexy’s speed figures will tell the tale and she will win it with Kitten’s Dumplings second and Alterite third. Good luck Guys and Gals!
