Pletcher won the 2010 Kentucky Derby with Super Saver and also trained Kentucky Oaks winners Rags to Riches (2007) and Princess of Sylmar (2013). He won four straight Eclipse Awards as top trainer from 2004-2007 and again in 2010, 2013 and 2014. The Texas native has also been the leading American conditioner by money won nine times since 2004. He's conditioned multiple Eclipse champions including Uncle Mo, Ashado, English Channel, Speighstown, Fleet Indian, Wait a While, Lawyer Ron, and Left Bank – and has saddled a co-record five starters in the Kentucky Derby twice before (2007 & 2013). Pletcher ranks second by Kentucky Derby starters with 40, trailing only living-legend D. Wayne Lukas.

Malibu Moon--More Than Pretty, by More Than Ready
Kauai Katie is by top sire Malibu Moon, who never got a chance to strut his stuff on track but has more than made up for that in the breeding shed.
The 16-year-old stallion made just two starts, but immediately hit pay dirt in the breeding shed with Grade 2 winner Perfect Moon from his first crop in 2001. His second crop was even better, showcasing champion Declan’s Moon and Grade 1 heroine Malibu Mint.
Malibu Moon is also the sire of such Grade 1-winning star fillies as Life at Ten, Devil May Care and Ask the Moon.
Kauai Katie’s dam is the stakes-winning More Than Ready mare More Than Pretty, who competed past seven furlongs just once in her two seasons of racing.
More Than Pretty’s second registered foal, a full sister to Kauai Katie named Winding Way, has thus far followed in her dam’s hoofsteps by sticking to sprinting distances and captured a Grade 3 going 6 ½ furlongs at Del Mar last August.
Kauai Katie’s one foray past 6 ½ furlongs, the 1 1/16-mile BC Juvenile Fillies, resulted in a fourth-placing. She cut back to shorter distances while taking her sophomore bow in a six-furlong Grade 3 contest on New Year’s Day.
