Timely Boost for Twin Hills Stud's Bobby's Kitten
Twin Hills Stud Principal Olly Tait would have been one happy man watching Oscar Performance salute in the Gr1 Secretariat Stakes at Arlington on Saturday. That is because Tait, who purchased the famous thoroughbred farm near Cootamundra from Godolphin's Sheikh Mohammed last year, will stand Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint winner Bobby's Kitten - a son of Oscar Performance's five-time US champion turf sire Kitten's Joy - for the upcoming Australian breeding season. A prolific source of high class horses, Kitten's Joy is by El Prado, sire of Medaglia d'Oro and Artie Schiller who have both enjoyed plenty of success in Australia. Bobby's Kitten will stand his debut season at Twin Hills at a fee of $16,500.
