The Alchemy’s exciting new stallion Where’s That Tiger sports some impressive local statistics.
The Storm Cat son has been represented by only seven South African runners, but of these, six have won or finished in the money.
Where’s That Tiger’s small sample of runners in this country also include the talented filly Tiger Quest-a G2 performer who earned more than R590 000 in an all too brief racing career- and classy feature race contender Supertube.
Tiger Quest was a top class filly, who won or placed in no fewer than five features, with her victories including a scintillating win in the Listed Gardenia Handicap of 2013.
A brother in blood to Brave Tin Soldier, the sire of this season’s undefeated two-year-old stakes winner Rabada, former UAE 2000 Guineas runner up Where’s That Tiger is certainly bred for the job.
He is by the legendary sire Storm Cat, champion sire in the US in both 1999 and 2000, and sire of over 180 stakes winners, including such G1 winners as Aljabr, Cat Thief, Desert Stormer, Life Is Sweet, Storm Flag Flying, Sweet Catomine, and Tabasco Cat.
An exceptional sire and sire of sires, Storm Cat’s top class sire sons include such breed shaping stallions as Giant’s Causeway, Hennessy, Stormy Atlantic and Tale Of The Cat, to name but a few. Storm Cat is also the sire of Yankee Gentleman, the broodmare sire of 2015 US Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.
Storm Cat has also been highly successful in South Africa, leaving behind such G1 sires as Black Minnaloushe, Mogok and Tiger Ridge. He is also the grandsire of the outstanding stallion Var, whose numerous high class runners include dual Horse Of The Year Variety Club.
Where’s That Tiger, a horse with a magnificent temperament, also hails from an outstanding female line.
Bred on the hugely successful Storm Cat/ Mr Prospector cross (responsible for such top class sires as Storm Boot and Tale Of The Cat), Where’s That Tiger’s dam is a full sister to G1 Kentucky Derby winner and successful sire Fusaichi Pegasus.
This is also the family of G1 Preakness Stakes winner and successful sire Pine Bluff, as well as the ill-fated legend Ruffian and breed shaping stallion Icecapade.
As the photo clearly indicates, Where’s That Tiger has well and truly let down into a superb looking specimen, with the great looks to match his superb pedigree and temperament.
