RSS Feeds Thursday, February 2, 2012
Multiple Grade 1 winner Tale of Ekati sired his first three reported foals in a matter of hours on the same morning, as two fillies and a colt were all born on Feb. 1.

Just after midnight Wednesday, a filly was the first to be born at Corner Woods Farm in Lexington, KY. Bred by Dr. Charles Kidder and Nancy Cole, the filly is out of the stakes-producing Wild Again mare I'm Beguiled Again. Later that morning, another filly was reported born around 5 a.m. in New York. Bred by Robert Clements, that filly is out of the mare Wicked Angel, a full sister to multiple stakes winner and Grade 3-placed Grey Comet.

A couple hours later, Tale of Ekati had a third foal on the ground when his first colt gave birth around 7 a.m. in West Virginia. Bred by Catherine Jennings, the colt is out of the Fast Play mare London Valley, dam of two-year-old stakes winner Stately Character.

Tale of Ekati was a top two-year-old and three-year-old on the track. At two, he won the Futurity S. (G2) at Belmont over champion Kodiak Kowboy before becoming a multiple Grade 1 winner at three. Tale of Ekati defeated champion War Pass in the Wood Memorial (G1) at Aqueduct and went on to capture the one-mile Jerome H. (G2) at Belmont. He closed out his three-year-old year by defeating older horses in the Cigar Mile (G1) at Aqueduct.

Bred and campaigned by Charles Fipke, Tale of Ekati retired to Darby Dan with earnings of $1,182,992, and he bred a full book of 116 mares in his first season at stud in 2011.

By Tale of the Cat, Tale of Ekati hails from the Sunday Silence mare Silence Beauty (Jpn), a half-sister  to champion Sky Beauty. Tale of Ekati will stand at Darby Dan in 2012 for a fee of $15,000 stands and nurses.
