KETTLE WON created quite a stir in his 2-year-old debut during the 1998 Saratoga meet as the Todd Pletcher-trainee blew away the opposition with a ten and a half-length romp in maiden special company. He has since competed successfully on dirt and turf, going short and long, and fiinished second in the Fort Lauderdale Handicap-G3 over Gulfstream Park's turf course in March of 2000. A half-brother to the durable allowance horse GLIDE HOME, KETTLE WON is out of championSAFELY KEPT's half-sister SAFE AT THE PLATE, a stakes-placed winner of $114,923.

Owned and campaigned by Sylvia and the late Arnold Heft, EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH retired as a millionaire when capturing his fourth running of the Jennings H. in December 2014. The final year of his career was magical as in one of his three starts he also became the first horse to win three runnings of the Maryland Million Classic. The handsome chestnut son of Not For Love retired with  a dozen stakes wins, 17 wins all together, and earnings of $1,072,970 while racing through age 8. His five stakes placings included a second in the historic Pimlico Special-G3.   

In 2011, EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH became the second Dark Hollow Farm-bred to win a Maryland Million Classic, joining PLAY BINGO.

Bred by Dark Hollow Farm and Graham and Anita Motion’s Herringswell Stables, EIGHTTOFASTTOCATCH is out of Dark Hollow Farm’s pensioned mare TOOFASTTOCATCH (by Nice Catch) and is a half-brother to stakes winner and Gr. 1-placed STORM PUNCH, stakes winner BAYONNE and nine other winners, who combined have earned in excess of $1.7 million.
