Suntracer Sire Kitten’s Joy Also Sire of Oscar Nominated, Owner Supplement Him to Triple Crown

Basking in the glory of winning the Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park on April 2, owner Ken Ramsey announced a proposal to anyone willing to front a $200,000 supplemental fee to make the colt eligible to the Triple Crown: Do so, and he would split with his potential partner whatever Oscar Nominated earned in the series of races.

Although he said he received interest, including one offer within 24 hours of winning the race, no agreement was ultimately reached, Ramsey said via text Tuesday evening. So, Ramsey and his wife, Sarah, who own the colt together, are rolling the Derby dice with their own dough, having paid the $200,000 supplement themselves by Wednesday morning, the day of Derby entries.
