Another 2YO Flyer for Cat

Todd Pletcher unleashed another flying juvenile by Tale of the Cat on Monday when Select Cat (2f Tale of the Cat x Secret Patriot, by Secret Hello) bolted in on debut at Saratoga. A stable mate of Grade II Sanford Stakes winner Overdriven, who is by the same sire, Select Cat jumped quickly and led throughout, opening up in the stretch to win the five furlong dash by five and a half lengths. Select Cat was a $75,000 Keeneland September Yearling Sale purchase and runs for Anstu Stables Inc. She is the fourth winner from four to race for good producer Secret Patriot, a half-sister to stakes-winner Abidjan and to the dam of Grade II winner Vision and Verse, who is by Tale of the Cat’s sire Storm Cat.
