Sir Cat Stakes to Winning Cause

Talented colt Winning Cause (3c Giant’s Causeway x Raffishing Look, by Kingmambo) claimed another feature race win when taking out the $100,000 sir Cat Stakes at Saratoga on Sunday. The Todd Pletcher trained colt captured the Grade III Lexington Stakes earlier this year and was back in top form for this one mile assignment on turf, forging clear to win by three-quarters of a length. Raced by Alto Racing, Winning Cause has the tidy record of four wins and three seconds from just 10 starts with prizemoney topping $324,000. Winning Cause is the first winner for Raffishing Look, who comes from the family of Grade I winners Twilight Agenda, Go and Go, Media Puzzle and Refuse to Bend.
