Nearly two years to the day and site of her last victory, Cat Feathers struck again.Owner-trainer Kate Dalton’s Cat Feathers, always well placed under jockey Bernie Dalton, took command on Saratoga Race Course’s final turn, flew over the final fence, and drew away to a 3 3/4-length victory in Thursday’s $75,000 Mrs. Ogden Phipps Stakes.Clarke Ohrstrom’s Kisser N Run, the reigning Life’s Illusion filly and mare champion, followed Cat Feathers into the stretch and leveled off through the drive. The 1.75-to-1 favorite, Kisser N Run finished second in a field of seven fillies and mares.Owner-trainer Jonathan Sheppard’s Brilliant Match set the pace for most of the Mrs. Phipps and finished 2 1/4 lengths farther back in third under Darren Nagle, who recently returned from a broken leg sustained in a March training accident. Arcadia Stable’s Opera Heroine finished fourth.A New York-bred by Catienus, Cat Feathers ran the Mrs. Phipps’ 2 1/16 miles in 3:49.74 on a firm inner turf course.The victory was Cat Feathers’ second in the Mrs. Phipps and her first win since that 2012 race.
