At Keeneland in the US, the Ken & Sarah Ramsey-owned 3YO filly Kitten's Dumplings (Kitten's Joy-Granny Franny, by Grand Slam) scored by a neck for trainer Michael Maker in the US$400,000 Gr1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (9 furlongs) for 3YO fillies, over fellow 3YO fillies Alterite (Literato-Ana Luna, by Dream Well) & Caroline Thomas (Giant's Causeway-Bit of Whimsy, by Distorted Humor). This was Kitten's Dumpling's first Gr1 victory and took her record to 6 wins (including the Gr2 Lake George Stakes & Gr3 Regret Stakes) & a placing (the Gr3 Tampa Bay Florida Oaks) from 12 starts.
