By the way, I know the other colt they wanted to buy at that same sale that year was Awesome Again, but I think Johnny was only able to raise 1.2M for that sale I still have all of the photos of the yearlings and the prospectus they put together for the investors when they came back from the sale, johnny told me there was another great colt they wanted to buy but didn’t have enough money to get him also. Can you imagine if they could have bought Awesome Again and Tale of the Cat from the same sale of 7 horses purchased. That would have been beyond lucky. I think the cat sold for $360k and Awesome again was in that same range also. He obviously had a great eye for horses. As crazy as this might sound, johnny, pat and I believe Julie would sit quietly in the stall with the yearlings watching their behavior for an hour or so before they bid on the horses they bought. He was a very interesting guy. They don’t come any better
