+BETHEL WILDCAT (c, 3, Discreet Cat–Excess's Best, by In Excess {Ire}) fired a four-panel bullet from the gate here in :46.40 Oct. 14, and was given a 3-1 chance to show that zip in the afternoon. Quickly emerging with the lead without having to work very hard for it, the bay cruised through a half in :45.56 and was still moving strongly turning for home. Kept to task with some left-handed encouragement, he continued on powerfully to the wire to don cap and gown by 3 1/2 lengths. Seat of Honor (Tapit) rallied from last for second. Florida-based shipper Muzzy on the Move (Ready's Image), who took the bulk of tote action, showed brief interest out wide before fading to last. The winner is a half to Tales in Excess (Tale of the Cat), SW, $122,750; a year-younger full-brother who brought $20,000 recently at Keeneland September; and a weanling filly by Shackleford. His dam was bred back to Fed Biz. Sales history: $9,000 RNA Ylg '14 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $36,000. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
