2015 Canadian Horse of the Year Catch a Glimpse looks to extend a four-race win streak in the Appalachian Stakes Presented.
Gary Barber, Michael Ambler, and Windways Farm's newly minted Canadian Horse of the Year Catch a Glimpse looks to extend a four-race win streak in the Appalachian Stakes Presented by Japan Racing Association (gr. IIIT) April 14 at Keeneland.
There are 11 3-year-old fillies entered for the mile turf race, which goes as the eighth race on Thursday's nine-race program.
A daughter of City Zip  , who also was honored as Canada's champion turf female and champion 2-year-old filly when Canada's Sovereign Awards were presented April 8 at Woodbine, won the Herecomesthebride (gr. IIIT) Feb. 27 in her season debut at Gulfstream Park after capping a three-race 2015 win streak, all on turf, in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (gr. IT) at the Lexington track. 
She is conditioned by Mark Casse, who won his ninth Sovereign Award as outstanding trainer.
Florent Geroux, who has been aboard Catch a Glimpse for her past three wins, retains the mount on the filly, who will break from post 8.
Chief rivals to Catch a Glimpse figure to be Amerman Racing Stable's Baciami Piccola and Ken and Sarah Ramsey's Ava's Kitten.
Trained by Brian Lynch, Baciami Piccola won the Florida Oaks (gr. III) in her U.S. debut March 12 at Tampa Bay Downs. A winner of two of her four starts, which include stakes-placings in France and Italy, the daugher of Equiano will be ridden by Julien Leparoux and start from the far outside post.
Ava's Kitten finished fifth in the Florida Oaks as the favorite in her 2016 debut. Trained by Chad Brown, the duagher of Kitten's Joy   won the mile Chelsey Flower Stakes last October on the Belmont Park turf. She will be ridden by Javier Castellano and break from post 5.
