Tale Of The Cat Adds French Gr3

Monday, 20th October 2008

In France overnight, Coolmore shuttler Tale Of The Cat (Storm Cat-Yarn, by Mr Prospector) added a juvenile black-type success when US-bred colt Naval Officer (Tale Of The Cat-Wandering Star, by Red Ransom) scored by a neck in the €80,000 (A$136,000) Gr3 Prix De Conde (1800m) for 2YOs at Longchamp in Paris. Naval Officer (ridden by Ioritz Mendizabal for trainer Jean-Claude Rouget) defeated fellow US-bred colt King Of Sydney (Diesis-Padmore, by French Deputy) & Irish-bred colt Handsome Maestro (Dansili-Graceful Bering, by Bering). Last month, Naval Officer also finished runner-up in France's Gr3 Prix Des Chenes (1600m) at Longchamp.
