    Breeders' Cup:

    Bobby's Kitten gives Ramseys

    a lift in Turf Sprint

    ARCADIA, Calif. — Owner Ken Ramsey had already endured his share of Breeders' Cup heartache.

    When Bobby's Kitten, his front-running talent, ended up at the back of the 14-horse field

    in Saturday's Turf Sprint, some all too familiar angst settled in over the Ramsey clan.

    "When I saw him last I said, 'Oh my gosh, another nightmare,'" the Nicholasville-based owner said.

    His bay legs churning in a way they had rarely done before, Bobby's Kitten provided a

    Breeders' Cup bright spot for Ramsey Farm, coming from the clouds to edge No Nay Never

    by half a length in the 61/2-furlong test down the Santa Anita Park downhill turf course.

    A perpetual picture of emotion, Ramsey has rarely been as post-race despondent as he was

    after Bobby's Kitten's run in the 2013 Juvenile Turf when the son of Kitten's Joy

    faded to third as the favorite after setting fractions of :22.27 and :45.70.

    Twenty four hours after Ramsey-owned Vicar's in Trouble suffered a condylar fracture

    during Friday's Dirt Mile and less than two hours after stablemate Stephanie's Kitten

    ran second in Saturday's Filly & Mare Turf, Bobby's Kitten was still 12th at the head of the lane

    but kept coming on the extreme outside under Joel Rosario to earn his first Grade I win

    in 11 starts and give Ramsey Farm its third Breeders' Cup winner.

    "Last year was devastating," Ramsey said. "Today, I went from the depths of depression to the highs of victory. Today was really, really good because this is the horse I think will really make a top-notch stallion. He just needed that Grade I."

    Bobby's Kitten, covered the 6&1/2 furlong distance in 1:12.73
