Kitten's Joy (foaled May 8, 2001 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse by the Sadler's Wells stallion El Prado out of the Lear Fan mare Kitten's First. Kitten's Joy is owned and bred by Ken and Sarah Ramsey (who is nicknamed Kitten). He was trained by Dale Romans and regularly ridden by Edgar Prado.
Kitten's Joy won the 2004 Secretariat Stakes and the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational Handicap as his only two Grade I wins. He also ran second to Better Talk Now in the 2004 Breeders' Cup Turf. This was enough to be voted the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Male Turf Horse.
Kitten's Joy only started twice as a four year old. Finishing first in the Firecraker. He finished second to Powerscourt in the Arlington Million, considered by some to be the turf race equivalent of the Kentucky Derby. He was retired after the Million and now stands at Ramsey Farm in Nicholasville, Kentucky.
