Bluegrass Cat

Race Summary

Bluegrass Cat left no-doubt he was the best horse as he blew past Praying for Cash in the stretch en route to a Haskell-record seven-length win. The Storm Cat colt's victory was the first Haskell win for trainer Todd Pletcher and jockey John Velazquez. After finishing second in the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes, Bluegrass Cat earned his first Grade I win of his career with his romp in the Haskell. The win pushed Bluegrass Cat over the $1 million mark in career earnings, and improved his record to 5-3-0 in ten starts.
