Monday, 12th March 2007

Former Grand Lodge Thoroughbreds shuttler Distorted Humor (Forty Niner-Danzig's Beauty, by Danzig) added a US group success when high-priced colt Cowtown Cat (Distorted Humor-Tom's Cat, by Storm Cat) scored a 2.5-lengths victory in the US$200,000 Gr3 Gotham Stakes (8.5 furlongs) for 3YOs at Aqueduct in New York. Cowtown Cat (ridden by Ramon Dominguez for trainer Todd Pletcher) defeated Wafi City (E Dubai-My Jody, by Private Account) & favourite Summer Doldrums (Street Cry-Dance For Dixie, by Unaccounted For). Bill Casner & Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm paid top price of US$1.5 million for Cowtown Cat (the 1st foal from winning mare Tom's Cat) at 2006's Barretts Equine March Selected Sale of 2YOs-In-Training. Kentucky-bred Cowtown Cat now has 3 wins (plus 3rd last start in the Gr2 Swale Stakes at Gulfstream Park on February 3) from 6 starts for US$188,463 earnings.
