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.

A stakes winner and graded stakes producer, CAT CHARMER has had four of her six offspring sell for six figures at public auction. A daughter of the legendary STORM CAT, she joined the Dark Hollow Farm broodmare band when purchased for $220,000 at Keeneland November in 2017 in foal to Union Rags. The filly she produced the next February brought $200,000 as a yearling at the Keeneland September sale. Of CAT CHARMER’s seven named foals, six have started and four are winners, led by STRIKE CHARMER, winner of the Gr. 2 Ballston Spa S. at Saratoga, the Gr. 3 Beaugay S. at Belmont Park and the Gr. 3 Cardinal H. at Churchill Downs. Her daughter Sweet Dreams made three career starts, winning first time out and finishing second or third in stakes at Woodbine in the other two. CAT CHARMER’s son TWIRLING, a full brother to Sweet Dreams, sold to Juddmonte Farms for $460,000 as a yearling.


On the board in five of seven starts at 2 and 3, with a victory in Belmont Park’s Pebbles S. and a third in Churchill Downs’ Gr. 2 Mrs. Revere S., CAT CHARMER is a half-sister to Kentucky Derby and Preakness-placed Impeachment. She is out of a half-sister to champion sprinter GOLD BEAUTY and four other stakes winners from the incredible family of Hall of Famers and champions descending from her stakes-winning second dam STICK TO BEAUTY.
