Team Valor International’s Howe Great took the field wire-to-wire in the $100,000 Kitten’s Joy Saturday run on turf a 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream Park. Even-money favorite and fellow Team Valor color-bearer Lucky Chappy closed from well back to be second.

Beneath Hall of Fame rider Edgar Prado, Howe Great set moderate early fractions of :24 3/5 for the first quarter and :48 for the half mile.
