Big Kitten who I purchased from Arqana breeze-up sale in May 2017 won in decisive fashion on his seasonal debut at Newcastle yesterday. The son of Kitten’s Joy had been placed 2nd in all his 3 starts at 2 years and won by 5 lengths here with recent course and distance winner Lumi in 2nd. Big Kitten’s form was in the book having run behind Kentucky Derby hopeful Gronkowski on his last start at 2 years. The Winter break had given the impression that Big Kitten had improved and although not being fully tested here he showed a good attitude and turn of foot and looks an exciting prospect for the season ahead.
Congratulations to his owner Mr Hussain Lootah and to his trainer Mark Johnston and his team.
