Tale Of the Cat’s 2013 2yo Gr.1 winner She’s A Tiger is the latest example of his affinity for FAPPIANO line mares. UNBRIDLED’S SONG is broodmare sire of the Gr.2 winners Alpha Kitten and A Shin Top. Gr.2 winner Spellbinder is out of a mare by QUIET AMERICAN. He also has several Graded winners inbred to MR PROSPECTOR, led by the Gr.1 winner Tale of Ekati (3x4) and the fast Forty Tales (3x3). His two highest-priced 2013 yearlings were both out of grand-daughters of UNBRIDLED.

He has only four foals out of daughters of INDIAN CHARLIE, but one is a Stakes winner and another is Graded-placed.

Tale Of The Cat is doing well with the HAIL TO REASON line. Tale of Ekati is from a mare by SUNDAY SILENCE, and his top son Lion Heart is out of a mare inbred 2x4 to HAIL TO REASON.

RIBOT line mares work too. JAVA GOLD sired the dam of the Gr.1-placed Resplendency and PLEASANT COLONY is broodmare sire of the Gr.1-placed Galantas.

He has a Stakes winner out of a mare by TIME FOR A CHANGE, a Gr.1 winner out of a PRIVATE ACCOUNT mare and a DAMASCUS mare is the second dam of the Gr.1-placed Resplendency.

Tale Of The Cat comes from the same family as Pulpit, a grandson of SEATTLE SLEW. Tale Of The Cat’s Gr.1 winner Cat Moves is out of a CAPOTE mare, Gr.2 winner Tale Of A Champion has a dam by SEATTLE SLEW.

Tale Of The Cat’s fourth dam, Monarchy, is a sister to Princequillo’s remarkable son ROUND TABLE. A Shin Top’s third dam is by Round Table.
