Favorite Tale (Tale Of The Cat)

Another Success for Favorite Tale

Brilliant sprinter Favorite Tale (4g Tale of the Cat x Tricky Elaine, by Grindstone) added another feature win to his tally when successful in the $200,000 Fabulous Strike Handicap at Penn National. Prepared by Guadalupe Preciado, Favorite Tale was a last start third in the Grade I Breeders Cup Sprint so was a hot favourite for this six furlong dash. He ran to expectation, powering clear to win by two lengths and has now won eight of 18 starts earning nearly $900,000 in prizemoney. He is one of five winners from Grade III placed Tricky Elaine, a half-sister to US Horse of the Year Favorite Trick.

Tricky Elaine produced a filly by Tale of the Cat this year and has been bred back to him again.
