Cowtown Cat in sharp workout at Keeneland.
Illinois Derby (gr. II) winner Cowtown Cat, one of trainer Todd Pletcher’s horses currently being pointed toward the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), worked at Keeneland on the Polytrack surface Saturday. The Distorted Humor
colt worked five furlongs handily in :58 2/5 in company with stakes-winning stablemate Out of Gwedda, who was timed in :59 for the same distance.
Cowtown Cat’s work was the third fastest of 33 timed at that distance. Stablemates Cotton Blossom and Octave each worked five furlongs in :58 for the fastest times of the day.
Pletcher’s other Kentucky Derby contenders – Any Given Saturday
, Circular Quay
and Scat Daddy
– are scheduled to work at Keeneland on Sunday. Another of Pletcher’s Derby candidates, Sam P., is stabled at Churchill Downs.
