Ben's Cat, a millionaire two times over, will go for his 25th lifetime stakes victory in the Governor's Cup at Penn National Race Course against his three closest pursuers from his last race.
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.
