Wayne Lukas saddles Beth and Michael Harper’s $475,000 KEESEP buy PHAROAH CAT (American Pharoah) for his first trip to the post Sunday at Churchill Downs. The dark bay’s unraced dam Meerkat Miss (Giant’s Causeway) is a half-sister to European champion Hold That Tiger (Storm Cat), MGISW millionaire Editor’s Note (Forty Niner) and SW Catnip (Flying Paster), who produced MGSW & GISP Indescribable (Pleasant Tap) and GSW Micromanage (Medaglia d’Oro). This is also the family of Lukas-trained champion Family Style (State Dinner) and GISW sire Hennessy (Storm Cat).

Ian Wilkes sends out another well-bred first timer in Ghostlore (Ghostzapper). Out of SW Ornate (Gilded Time), the bay is a half to MGISW millionaire On Fire Baby (Smoke Glacken), GSW High Heels (E Dubai) and SW & GSP French Kiss (Hussonet).

Buttered Noodles, a member of the last crop of City ZIp, makes his debut in this test as well. The $100,000 OBSMAR buy is out of a half-sister to GI Florida Derby hero and ‘TDN Rising Star’ Materiality (Afleet Alex) and GSW & MGISP My Miss Sophia (Unbridled’s Song), who was second to only champion Lady Eli (Divine Park) when selling for $4 million at last year’s Keeneland November carrying a foal by War Front. This is also the family of GISW Embellish the Lace (Super Saver) and MGSW Eye of the Tiger (American Chance). TJCIS PPs
