LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Bobby's Kitten is the early favorite for Saturday's $750,000 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland.
Javier Castellano will ride the Chad Brown-trained bay colt, who drew the fifth post position Wednesday for the Grade 1 event awarding 170 points toward the Kentucky Derby. The winner earns 100 and all but assures a spot in the 140th Run for the Roses.
Bobby's Kitten is a 3-1 shot for another stakes win Saturday after claiming the Grade 3 Pilgrim in October at Belmont. He has three wins and two thirds - one of which was in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita.
Medal Count drew the 13th position and is the 9-2 second choice. Gala Award will start 14th at 5-1.
Asserting Bear will start from the first post at 15-1.
