Headline Report | Coady

2nd-Keeneland, $59,524, Msw, 4-23, 2yo, 4 1/2f, :51.75, ft, 2 1/4 lengths.
HEADLINE REPORT (c, 2, Gormley–Green Eyed Cat, by Tale of the Cat) was pounded into debut odds of 30 cents on the dollar and did his best work through the wire to become the first winner for his freshman sire (by Malibu Moon) Friday at Keeneland. Off slowly beneath John Velazquez and immediately under the pump, the bay quickly made up for lost time and was on even terms with La Belleza Negra (Cairo Prince) as they hit the top of the stretch. He struck to the lead outside the eighth pole and kicked on nicely through the final sixteenth of a mile to stop the timer in solid time. Conagher (Jimmy Creed) completed a Spendthrift-sired exacta. A half-brother to SW Little Kansas (El Kingdom), Headline Report was purchased by Eddie Woods's Quarter Pole Enterprises for $160,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Select Yearling Sale last September. He was recently hammered down for $550,000 at the OBS March Sale after breezing a bullet eighth of a mile in :9 4/5. Headline Report's second dam was the dual Grade I winner Critical Eye (Dynaformer), who also serves as the granddam of MSW Critical Value (Bodemeister). The third dam includes Klaravich Stables' talented turf runner Takeover Target (Harlan's Holiday). Green Eyed Cat has a yearling filly by Mo Town and was most recently bred to Catalina Cruiser.
