Darling Kathy is the lukewarm 3/1 morning line favorite for trainer Chad Brown, after the four year-old daughter of Wildcat Heir showed little rust while returning from a seven and half month layoff to win the Perfect Sting Stakes by a nose July 3 at Belmont. The win gave Darling Kathy her third consecutive trip to the winner’s circle and third victory in four tries at the one mile distance. Now making her second start off the layoff, Darling Kathy seems well-positioned to improve for Brown who connects at a 15% clip with such runners. Javier Castellano, who was aboard in the Perfect Sting, knows this filly well and should be forwardly-placed again despite breaking from post 9.
Wide Post for Stellar Path
Stellar Path (4/1) will have to overcome a wide draw, breaking from post 12, but has shown she fits at this level while making a trio of U.S. starts after coming over from France. The Christophe Clement charge won a listed stakes at Aqueduct and finished fourth and third respectively in the Grade 2 Nassau and Grade 3 Eatontown.
Lots of options for price players
A plethora of live runners will offer generous odds including Recepta (6/1), J Wonder (5/1), Token of Love (10/1), and Pink Poppy (12/1) in the wide-open wagering event.
