Saratoga Debut Winner for Tale of the Cat

Speedy three year-old Neatie the Cat (3g Tale of the Cat x Neatie, by Alydeed) scored an eye catching debut when sizzling clear to win by daylight at Saratoga on Sunday. The Eddie Kenneally trained gelding jumped well to take an early lead and then controlled the race throughout before cruising home to win the five and a half furlong dash by seven and a quarter lengths. A homebred for Anstu Stables, Neatie the Cat is the third winner for Neatie, a half-sister by Alydeed to Grade III winner Mayflower Miss. Another debut winner for Tale of the Cat on the weekend was Ali’s Birthday (2c Tale of the Cat x Miss Utada, by Rahy), who saluted at Ellis Park by half a length.
