Trainer Aidan O'Brien and the Coolmore contingent has won the last two Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (gr. IT) contests. They are poised for a three-peat with Irish-based imports Giovanni Boldini and Wilshire Boulevard.
Bobby's Kitten, Ken and Sarah Ramsey's homebred son of Kitten's Joy, was made the 5-2 morning line favorite after drawing post 5 for the Nov. 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (gr. IT).
Even-money favorite Toormore took the lead at the start and was never headed en route to a clear win in the Goffs Vincent O'Brien National Stakes (Ire-I) for 2-year-olds Sept. 15 at the Curragh.
