Cougar Cat retired to Richland Hills Farm

COUGAR CAT, a son of Storm Cat who has finished placed in Group/Graded races in both Europe and the US, has been retired to his owner's Richland Hills Farm in Kentucky.

Bred by Brushwood Stables, the six-year-old started his career in Ireland, where he raced for Aidan O'Brien at two and three. His best run during that period came when splitting Oratorio and Indesatchel when second in the Anglesey Stakes.

Transferred to American trainer Ronny Werner, he finished second in the Grade 3 Aristides Breeders' Cup and was runner-up to Benny The Bull in the Iowa Sprint Handicap at five.

His dam, Excellent Meeting, won four Grade 1 races over 1m to 1m1f at two and three.

Cougar Cat's fee for 2009 has been set at $5,000. Richland Hills president Nathan Fox said: "His one-of-a-kind pedigree, blazing fast speed on the track and value price will make him very appealing to breeders in 2009.”
