KETTLE WON created quite a stir in his 2-year-old debut during the 1998 Saratoga meet as the Todd Pletcher-trainee blew away the opposition with a ten and a half-length romp in maiden special company. He has since competed successfully on dirt and turf, going short and long, and fiinished second in the Fort Lauderdale Handicap-G3 over Gulfstream Park's turf course in March of 2000. A half-brother to the durable allowance horse GLIDE HOME, KETTLE WON is out of championSAFELY KEPT's half-sister SAFE AT THE PLATE, a stakes-placed winner of $114,923.

ARISTOTLE had a busy 3-year-old campaign in 1999, making 14 starts in the tough sprint division, with half his starts against older horses. While based on the East Coast, he captured the Maryland Million Sprint, was second in both the Fall Highweight H.-G2 (to Richter Scale) and Sport Page H.-G3 and, after a wide trip, placed third in the Gallant Bob H. 

ARISTOTLE started out the year on the West Coast with two eye catching performances, topped by his battle with the nation's leading 3-year-old Exploit in the San Vicente S.-G2, missing by only a neck. His previous outing saw him finish second to Cape Canaveral in the San Miguel S. ARISTOTLE earned $273,991, with five wins and eight placings.
