CONQUERING CAT (c, 2, Game Winner–Coy Cat {MSW, $247,755}, by Hold That Tiger) had to settle for second on his debut over course and close to distance May 16 but came back Thursday to do one better, becoming the first winner for his freshman sire (by Candy Ride {Arg}). The 2-1 favorite raced mid pack from an outside draw but slowly began to reel in loose leader The Toner (Union Rags) around the far turn. With a strong closing drive, he put that rival behind him and lasted over a late-running Munson (Ghostzapper) to graduate by a half-length. Summer Vibe (Good Magic) wound up a trainer scratch before the race while Magnitude (Not This Time) came home fifth and Keep It Easy (Hard Spun) was seventh. Coy Cat, already responsible for Doups Point (Point of Entry), MSP, $218,120 and Newport Breeze (Majestic Warrior), MSP, $157,220, also produced Lin Marie (Curlin), the dam of MGSP Dream Marie (Graydar). She reported a colt by Silver State last year before visiting Jackie's Warrior for 2024. Sales History: $80,000 Ylg '23 KEESEP; $100,000 2yo '24 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $93,000.
