Selling with a foal at foot:No

Cat's Pause is a good looking, lightly bred CATBIRD mare who has it all ahead of her.

Out of Honolulu who is a half sister to RASS DANCER (GR 3 STC Reisling Slipper Trial winner) who is in turn the dam of GR 1 performer Rass Brightia. There is clearly a lot of ability throughout this page both from 2 year old form and 3 year old form.

Honolulu was a three time winner herself and has a very impressive record as a broodmare with 6 foals to race with 5 winners.

Cat's Pause is by Catbird and he has done a great job as a broodmare sire. He has sired the dams of GROUP 1 winners HAWKSPUR (BRC Queensland Derby, Gr.1),
ENTISAAR (Scottsville Allan Robertson Championship, Gr.1) as well as multiple GROUP 2 winner CATKINS, MYSTIC PRINCE and LADY ROYALE. In all, Catbird is the broodmare sire of 10 individual Stakes winners and has a 71.4% winners to runners rate. These are incredible stats.

Cat's Pause is for genuine sale and all enquiries are welcome.
