   Kauai Katie reeled off victories in the GII Adirondack S. and GII Matron S. following her eye-catching debut at Saratoga. She was outrun by Beholder (Henny Hughes) early in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies and wound up fourth, but got back on track with a powerful performance in the GIII Old Hat S. on New Year’s Day (video). That effort was awarded a 101 Beyer Speed Figure and earned her 1-5 favoritism, especially with her main rivals coming off freshenings.
   Breaking from the outside, the dark bay used her natural speed to clear the field for a :22.89 opening quarter. My Happy Face was tucked in on the rail in fourth, while Spring Venture (Spring At Last raced three wide as they entered the turn. Jockey John Velazquez moved his hands on Kauai Katie and the favorite responded smartly, settling the matter in just a few strides en route to a daylight romp.
