The TDN Topic is a new feature for the TDN, designed to examine a topic in racing from several different angles, and then seek comment from our readers. In each TDN Topic, we ask people with different perspectives—from both inside and outside the sport—to comment on a hot-button issue. Today, we start with whipping.

   The domination by Ken and Sarah Ramsey, Mike Maker and Joel Rosario that occurred at Keeneland has showed no signs of slowing since racing action in Kentucky has shifted to Louisville, and Kitten’s Dumplings became the latest of a seemingly endless string of ‘kittens’ to be led into the winner’s circle by Mr. Ramsey. A debut winner over yielding Saratoga sod last August, the homebred was fourth in Woodbine’s GII Natalma S. the following month, but failed to bounce back from a rough start and checked in 11th in Keeneland’s GI Darley Alcibiades S. Oct. 5. Kitten’s Dumplings bounced back on the class drop to take Retama’s La Senorita S. Nov. 10, but was seventh in her 3-year-old bow in Gulfstream’s Ginger Brew S. on New Year’s Day. She ran second to "TDN Rising Star" Tapicat (Tapit) in the GIII Florida Oaks at Tampa Feb. 2--one spot in front of Wave Theory (Smart Strike)--and was on slot behind that foe when fifth last time on in the Apr. 6 GI Ashland S. on Lexington Poly. With Wave Theory tossing rider Julien Leparoux at the start, Kitten’s Dumplings was content to caboose the remainder of the field early. She traveled sweetly turning for home, and cut to the outside for clear sailing at the head of the lane. Her competition could offer up little resistance, and Kitten’s Dumplings exploded to the lead for a decisive tally. "What more can you say about Joel now?" Mike Maker said of hisgo-to rider. "He’s in the zone. He’s making all the right decisions and riding with a lot of confidence. I am glad he is on our team. I didn’t give him any instructions since we know she comes from off the pace and he put her in the right position to win." Click for the chart or VIDEO.
