Bobby’s Kitten

The only three-year-old ever to win the G1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint - and he won beating a European Champion and the horse who beat Brazen Beau at Royal Ascot. A G1 juvenile, he also won the G3 Pilgrim Stakes on the turf at Belmont by six-and-a-half lengths as a two-year-old.

El Prado line of Medaglia d’Oro and Artie Schiller – and faster than both. He’s the fastest by five-time US Champion Turf Sire, Kitten’s Joy. Out of a superior producer from the immediate family of leading sire Theatrical.

Deep-shouldered, muscular, extremely powerful, Bobby’s Kitten is a particularly imposing horse. He’s got a swaggering, athletic walk, and a fine, masculine head with a generous eye. All in all, a strong, balanced type. Impressive’ Olly Tait

Won the G1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at three, beating a Champion and a Royal Ascot Diamond Jubilee Stakes winner. He also won the G3 Pilgrim Stakes on the turf at Belmont by six-and-a-half lengths at two, plus his only start in Europe.
