Inglis Easter Day-1: $700,000 Tale Of The Cat Colt
Queensland's John Foote Bloodstock paid $700,000 for a colt (the 4th foal from Kenny's Best Pal mare Surrealist) from the 1st crop of Coolmore shuttler Tale Of The Cat, consigned by Coolmore Stud as agent. Surrealist's 2 foals to race are both winners, including last weekend's winner of the $2 million Gr1 Doncaster Handicap Racing To Win. Boom 3YO gelding Racing To Win (Encosta De Lago-Surrealist) was a $40,000 yearling bargain at the 2004 Inglis Easter Sale & now boasts 6 wins (also including the Gr1 George Ryder Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill on April 8, plus the Gr2 Hobartville Stakes over 1400m on March 4) & 3 runner-ups (including the Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes over 1500m on March 25 & Gr2 Royal Sovereign Stakes over 1200m on February 18) in 9 starts for $2,006,585 earnings. Surrealist is also the dam of 3-time winner & Listed-placed Distilled.
