J and J Stables and GSP Racing Stable’s Jewel of a Cat had traffic problems in the early going of Monday’s $100,000 Coronation Cup Stakes at Saratoga, but she rallied in the stretch, hit the front a sixteenth from home and edged away to a half length victory. Fellow OBS graduate Little Sandy (March ’12) checked in third. It’s the second stakes win for the 3-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Wildcat Heir, sold for $40,000 by Bo Hunt, Agent, at the 2012 OBS April Sale. The win gives her an 8-4-2-1 record and $189,000 in earnings. watch her under tack video
