Zow zips to Saratoga stakes win for 'Cat'
Friday, September 02, 2011
Bluegrass Cat's 2-year-old colt Zow handled the jump from a maiden race to a stake with style to take the $75,000 Gold and Roses S. Sept. 2 at Saratoga. Zow stakes win number five of 2011 for Bluegrass Cat, who is in the top 10 among all North American second-crop sires.

Despite getting bumped at the start, Zow jumped right out to set the pace in the six furlong contest, opening up two lengths by the time the field hit the top of the stretch. Kept to the task late by John Velazquez, Zow hit the finish three-quarters of a length on top in 1:12.13.

Zow is now two-for-two after breaking his maiden by two lengths at Belmont Park in early July. She has earned $81,000. The win also marked a record setting 36th win of the meet for trainer Todd Pletcher and also put owner Mike Repole on top of the meet's owner standings going into the final weekend.

Zow was bred in New York by Vivien Malloy, Edition Farm and Racehorse Management, LLC. The bay colt is out of Then She Laughs, who is by WinStar's stallion Distorted Humor. Zow has produced two other winners, including two-time stakes placed Hysterical Cat.
