BEN’S CAT LOOKING TO REPEAT IN LAUREL DASH


LAUREL, MD. 10-25-12---While the $350,000 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash headlines Saturday’s 11-race Fall Festival of Racing card at Laurel Park, the star of the program is the remarkable Ben’s Cat, who is looking to defend his title in the $150,000 Laurel Dash, one of five turf stakes on the undercard.

Maryland Jockey Club handicapper Frank Carulli has established the King Leatherbury homebred as the even money favorite in the 6-furlong turf test. Three weeks ago, he became the fourth horse to win the same Maryland Million race three consecutive years with a victory in the Turf Sprint. The son of Parker’s Storm Cat became Leatherbury’s first millionaire with a victory in the Turf Monster Handicap (G3) at Parx Racing in early September. He has won 18-of-27 starts with 13 stakes scores for earnings of $1,216,090.
