Bluegrass Cat - Roadtohanna, by Not For Love
After being born very tiny and unable to breathe, Tell a Great Story defines her namesake. She was termed a “dummy foal” due to inability to feed from her mother after birth, and also lacked reflexes. With the unrelenting efforts of the Sagamore Racing team, she was nursed to health and trained into racing shape. In Jan. 2013, Tell a Great Story began her racing career on a high note, winning her first career race at Laurel Park; finished third in her second race, also at Laurel Park on Feb. 22; came close to getting her second victory on April 12, when she was beaten by a nose in an Allowance at Pimlico; bounced back to win an Allowance at Pimlico on May 12; stepped up in her first stakes race, winning the $75,000 Go For Wand Stakes by a nose at Delaware Park on June 15; competed in her first Graded Stakes race on July 13 at Delaware Park finishing third in the GII Delaware Oaks; Tell A Great Story retired from racing in 2014.
