Garden Tour (Bluegrass Cat - Winter Garden by Roy) makes start number one, facing 8 at Calder. He has been working at that track, including 4 furlongs in :49.60 from the gate on July 18. Grade III winner Winter Garden, dam of Garden Tour, won her first 2 races at 2, and earned $902,788 in her career. She has produced one winner from one to run, the Speightstown 4-year-old gelding Outta Speight. Winter Garden is a half sister to 2 winners. Bluegrass Cat's 22 runners have made 38 total starts, recording 8 wins, 6 seconds, 4 thirds, and $249,775 in earnings.
Also debuting in this one are Kaka (In Excess (IRE) - Ploesti Flight by Lucky North) and Cape Rico (Around the Cape - Canberra by Silver Hawk). Kaka, who sold for $4,700 as a yearling, is the first foal out of the winning mare Ploesti Flight. Ploesti Flight was a winner at 2, and is a half sister to 7 winners, including stakes winner Chatter Chatter. Chatter Chatter is the dam of the Bluegrass Cat 2-year-old filly Bluegrass Chatter. As an aside, I wonder how many other Florida-breds are by California-based In Excess.
