The Joy of KittensFun article by Steve Haskin.http://cs.bloodhorse.com/blogs/horse-racing-steve-haskin/archive/2013/10/14/the-joy-of-kittens.aspxWhat is even more amazing about Kitten’s Joy, in addition to being the No. 1 sire in earnings in America, the No. 1 turf sire, the No. 1 sire of grade I winners, the No. 1 sire of stakes winners, and the No. 1 sire of stakes horses, is the fact that his offspring all look alike and run alike, and as a genetic phenomenon, they all seem to be the same bay color, even though Kitten’s Joy was a chestnut.
Im not too sure about that. Perhaps he upped it due to their success at Keeneland this year? People will see they dont do well come BC races theyre hard knocking offspring though. I dont like that he told Bobbys Kitten's jockey he would never let him ride again. But the horse finushed third, eh...he ran on the lead in blistering times so i can kinda see his anger.
Here is a great video about Ken Ramsey talking about Kitten's Joy's success: http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/videos/13057/ramsey-farm-2013-ken-ramsey-and-kittens-joy
Sounds good...but Zenyatta may be taking a break from foaling a 2015 baby. I think there was earlier discussion that due to a late 2015 foaling, they may not breed her this year. But don't quote me on that. )
I sort of get the feeling that the Moss's are more into the classic mile+ dirt runners than turf. Kitten's Joy is, at least so far, looking like a producer of mostly turf runners. Ann and Jerry may not want to go that way. But who knows what they'll decide.
If they ever go to Kitten's Joy with Z it will feel like a dream.
Zenkitty. ha haI already have one of those, my Siamese-mix Zenny.
