Tale Of the Cat’s 2013 2yo Gr.1 winner She’s A Tiger is the latest example of his affinity for FAPPIANO line mares. UNBRIDLED’S SONG is broodmare sire of the Gr.2 winners Alpha Kitten and A Shin Top. Gr.2 winner Spellbinder is out of a mare by QUIET AMERICAN. He also has several Graded winners inbred to MR PROSPECTOR, led by the Gr.1 winner Tale of Ekati (3×4) and the fast Forty Tales (3×3). His two highest-priced 2013 yearlings were both out of grand-daughters of UNBRIDLED.
He has only four foals out of daughters of INDIAN CHARLIE, but one is a Stakes winner and another is Graded-placed.
Tale Of The Cat is doing well with the HAIL TO REASON line. Tale of Ekati is from a mare by SUNDAY SILENCE, and his top son Lion Heart is out of a mare inbred 2×4 to HAIL TO REASON.
RIBOT line mares work too. JAVA GOLD sired the dam of the Gr.1-placed Resplendency and PLEASANT COLONY is broodmare sire of the Gr.1-placed Galantas.
He has a Stakes winner out of a mare by TIME FOR A CHANGE, a Gr.1 winner out of a PRIVATE ACCOUNT mare and a DAMASCUS mare is the second dam of the Gr.1-placed Resplendency.
Tale Of The Cat comes from the same family as Pulpit, a grandson of SEATTLE SLEW. Tale Of The Cat’s Gr.1 winner Cat Moves is out of a CAPOTE mare, Gr.2 winner Tale Of A Champion has a dam by SEATTLE SLEW.
Tale Of The Cat’s fourth dam, Monarchy, is a sister to Princequillo’s remarkable son ROUND TABLE. A Shin Top’s third dam is by Round Table.
