The Jim Stable's Ben's Cat, in the second start of his 9-year-old season, got back to his winning ways with a dramatic off-the-pace victory in the $100,000 Jim McKay Turf Sprint May 15 at Pimlico Race Course.
Veteran Ben's Cat opened his 9-year-old season with a runner-up finish Friday, April 17 in an allowance race at Pimlico Race Course. The 23-time stakes winner chased Bold Thunder throughout Friday's test.
Trainer King Leatherbury was confident Ben's Cat would exit the Laurel Dash with another victory Sept. 27, but instead watched the 8-year-old gelding finish third behind longshots Dreamsgonewild and Bold Thunder.
