One of the strongest pedigrees you’ll ever see, this colt is by top sire Tale of the Cat and a FULL brother to champion nine-furlong runner and sire Lion Heart.
Tale of the Cat is 8th on the general sire list. Notable runners include champions Gio Ponti, earner of over $5 million, Malevola, and Platinum Couple. Other Grade 1 winners include Lion Heart, Tale of Ekati, Glamour Puss, My Trusty Cat, and Tell at Tale. Nine crops of racing age have produced 150 worldwide stakes performers and earners of more than $70,000,000.
This colt’s dam, Satin Sunrise, won 23 times from ages 2 to 7, and earned over $263,000 on the track. Her record as a broodmare is strong. Not only is this colt a full brother to millionaire Lion Heart, he is a half brother to graded stakes winners Connemara and French Satin. He’s also bred on the same cross as Grade 1 winner Studentessa.
Terry on Tale of the Cat colt: "What I loved most about this colt at the sale was his attitude. Calm, collected, and smart. He walked into the ring and stood there like a staute. He's extremely athletic-looking and well-proportioned too. Tale of the Cat is about as solid a sire as they come, and this colt's full brother, Lion Heart, was a monster on the track and is making quite a name for himself at stud. This one looks precocious. I could see him making some noise at Saratoga next summer."
