Tell A Tale Wins NZ Hawkes Bay Guineas
Also at Hastings, Coolmore shuttler Tale Of The Cat (Storm Cat-Yarn, by Mr. Prospector) celebrated a group victory when Australian-bred 3YO gelding Tell A Tale (Tale Of The Cat-Cheeky Veronika, by Sir Tristram) narrowly won the NZ$100,000 Gr2 Hawkes Bay Guineas (1400m) for 3YOs. Ridden by Troy Harris for trainer Mark Walker, Tell A Tale defeated colt Fully Fledged (Align-Fledged, by Bluebird) & fellow gelding Altered Image (Strategic Image-Dented Ambition, by Danasinga). Originally a $40,000 yearling consigned by Edinglassie Stud at the 2007 Inglis Classic Sale & subsequently a $125,000 yearling later that year at the 2007 Magic Millions Winter Sale, Tell A Tale now has 2 wins & 2 placings from 4 starts for $71,650 earnings.
