Kiwi Stakes-Winner for Tale of the Cat

Brilliant filly Dancer’s Tale (2f Tale of the Cat x Our Pineau, by Carnegie) took out the Listed Welcome stakes at Riccarton in New Zealand on Saturday. The Murray Baker trained filly scored by a long neck in the 1000 metre dash and has now won two of three starts. Dancer’s Tale was a $65,000 purchase from the Blandford Lodge draft at the 2012 NZB Select Yearling Sale and is the first stakes-winner for Our Pineau, a half-sister by Carnegie to the dams of stakes-winners Pussy Willow and Valpolicella. She is the 80th stakes-winner worldwide for accomplished shuttle sire Tale of the Cat.
