Osidy's first winner impresses in Trial


Saturday, June 12, 2010
Osidy, a graded stakes-winning son of Storm Cat, sired his first winner Friday night, when his 2-year-old filly Candi's Kitten broke her maiden by a decisive 6  1/4 lengths in a $20,000 Trial at Evangeline Downs. The race was a qualifier for the $100,000 DS Shine Young Memorial Futurity to be run on July 3rd at Evangeline.
 
Candi's Kitten was bred in Louisiana by B. Wayne Hughes, who raced Osidy and stands him at Michelle Rodriguez's Elite Thoroughbreds in Folsom, LA. By Storm Cat out of the champion Seattle Dancer mare Que Belle, Osidy won the Will Rogers S. (G3) at Hollywood Park at three and Blue Jay Way S. at Santa Anita at four. He was also Group-placed as a juvenile in Europe.
 
Making her second start, Candi's Kitten tracked the early pace before drawing well clear in the Trial race, stopping the clock in 59.77 for five furlongs over a fast local main track. The final margin of victory was the largest from three Trial races for 2-year-old fillies on the card. In her debut, Candi's Kitten was beaten just a neck in an open maiden special weight at Louisiana Downs on May 21st.
 
Trained by Lonnie Briley, the bay filly has earnings of $14,750 for owners Terri & Joey Gullo and Arnold Haynie, Jr., who purchased her for $7,000 as a yearling. Candi's Kitten is out of the Distorted Humor mare Heavenly Psalm.
 
Osidy stands at Elite for a fee of $2,000 S&N.
