North America's leading turf sire Kitten's Joy got his first European group I winner July 2 when Kentucky-bred Hawkbill edged favorite The Gurkha by a half length in the Coral Eclipse Stakes at Sandown.
German-bred Caprice saved ground throughout, snuck through a hole on the inside in upper stretch, and held off Trensa by a neck to win the $171,050 Robert G. Dick Memorial Handicap (gr. IIIT) July 18 on the Delaware Park turf.
