Favorite Tale (Tale Of The Cat)

Grade Three Win for Favorite Tale

Given TDN Rising Star status when he won by 14 lengths in March, Favorite Tale (3g Tale of the Cat x Tricky Elaine, by Grindstone) had been consistent in recent runs before going to a new level to win the $300,000 Grade III Gallant Bob Stakes at Parx Racing on Saturday. Prepared by Guadalupe Preciado, Favorite Tale forged clear of his rivals to win the six furlong sprint by two and a half lengths. Favorite Tale has won five of 10 starts earning $369,826 and is one of five winners from Grade III placed Tricky Elaine, a half-sister to US Horse of the Year Favorite Trick.
