2013 Kent Stakes Race Favorite Entries

Majestic Jess - marked just his third career start on North American soil Saturday after 12 starts in Ireland netted two wins, a second and five third place finishes - respectable indeed. Since shipping he has a fourth in a Claiming in July and a third last time out in a Starter Optional Claiming August 8 - both results at Saratoga.

Are You Kidding Me - raced to a very good second in the Grade 2 Summer Stakes at Woodbine a year ago for his best career result but has been up and down since. Last time out was a second in the minor Toronto Cup after a fifth in the minor Charlie Barley Stakes and a sixth in the minor Penn Mile in June. His last graded stakes action came in March - a disappointing eighth in the Grade 1 Florida Derby. He has placed in three of six starts in 2013 and enters the Kent in so-so form

Grand Tito - Antonio Sano trained colt became a stakes winner in July - the minor Showing Up Stakes at Gulfstream but followed that with a disappointing fifth last time out in the minor Naked Green Stakes at Calder August 3. He has two wins and a second place finish in five career start - the other win being a MSW in his third career start at Calder in June.

Fear The Kitten - Michael Maker trained colt has 11 race career with two wins, a second and a third place finish. He had a pair of fifth place finishes in the spring - in the Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes and in the Grade 3 Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park March 23 He followed that with a sixth in the Grade 2 Peter Pan in May and a fourth in the minor Springfield Stakes at Arlington Park June 1. Last time out was a fifth in the minor Stroll Stakes at Saratoga August 14 after an unflattering sixth in the Grade 2 Virginia Derby July 13. Good results include a second in the Grade 3 Southwest Stakes to Super Ninety Nine at Oaklawn Park February 18 after a third in the Grade 3 LeComte January 19 at Fair Grounds. It's been a while since we saw good form from Fear The Kitten - hopes are he changes that trend Saturday.

Hard Enough - races in graded stakes company for the first time Saturday but is coming off two nice minor stakes scores - both at Monmouth Park. Last time out was in the Restoration Stakes August 17 after the Jersey Derby in July. Before that was three straight third place finishes. He only has four wins and three thirds in 15 career starts so it is easy to see that Hard enough is in the best form of his career

Saint Vigeur - Chad Brown trained colt (an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Aqueduct April 11 after breaking maiden at Gulfstream January 8) was followed by a pair of good seconds in graded stakes action. Last time out was in the Grade 2 Dwyer Stakes hat Belmont Park July 6 after the Grade 2 Peter Pan Stakes also at Belmont Park im May. His only other stakes action came in October - a fifth in the Grade 3 Pilgrim Stakes on this track October 8.
