+JEHOZACAT (f, 2, Tapit–Precious Kitten {MGISW, $1,912,543}, by Catienus), a full-sister to GSW & GISP Divining Rod, captured her debut in convincing fashion Sunday afternoon at Laurel. A homebred from Roy and Gretchen Jackson's Lael Stables, the filly grabbed the lead, came under pressure through a quarter-mile in :23 flat, but found more late to score by 5 1/2 lengths. In Jail (Into Mischief) was second best. The victress's three-time Grade I-winning dam is a half-sister to champion turf horse and successful sire Kitten's Joy (El Prado {Ire}), as well as Justenuffheart (Broad Brush), the dam of champion juvenile filly Dreaming of Anna (Rahy). Jehozacat is Precious Kitten's most recent foal. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $22,800. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
