Red Moon Cat has an impressive win at the Fair Grounds

That was all I could say when Red Moon Cat came from more than 12 lengths off the pace to blow by what looked like a certain winner in Candy Delicious who had drawn off to a nearly 7 length lead from the rest of the field to win a $45,000 maiden allowance race.
Leaving from the 11 hole and jostled at the start, Red Moon Cat stayed far back. Behind a wall of horses at the eighth pole she looked to have no chance to catch the winner. Rider James Graham found a hole and Red Moon Cat proved she had what it takes to win.
Red Moon Cat, a 2 year old Louisiana Bred daughter of Malibu Moon, had been entered on the turf in her 2 previous starts but thanks to the weather was moved to the main track in both attempts. She found her calling on the turf track at The Fair Grounds Race Course November 29th in what I think was the most impressive Maiden win of the meet. For a little filly, about 14.3 hands, she showed tremendous heart and courage and we are proud to have her in our stable.
Red Moon Cat is owned by James and Ywachetta Driver of Irving, Texas and is trained by Dallas Keen.

14.3 hands? She's tiny, she makes Mine That Bird look big. I now have a favorite "little horse" to cheer for. Great name too, please keep us posted on her progress! If owners gave us more insight into their horses (especially the little things that make them unique) they would keep loyal fan clubs for their runners.

That is fantastic! I have to say as the owner of a Dayjur filly (can you say mini Thoroughbred) it's nice to hear about a practically large pony winning so impressively in such a good race. Yay! Keep up the updates, we love it!

The Barbaro Brothers model can be applied to any stable lucky enough to have a writer willing to tell the horses stories (or any breeder willing to keep breeding full sibling after full sibling LOL!) Not only is the inside info, photos and videos great for us fans- it's free advertising. Stables that care enough to share info radiate good care of their charges. Racehorses we get to know now may one day be the horse that we want to purchase or breed to. I know, obvious points. But seriously, more trainers,owners and farms should take advantage of the Internet to draw fans in. Trueamericanspirit ran his last race today, a beloved 9 year old gray gelding with an enviable race record. Today was the first I had ever heard of him. No thanks to the regular racing media. It would have been nice to hear his story before he was gone.
