The third and last foal from Storm Cat’s final crop was born March 5 at Louise and Kiki Courtelis’ Town & Country Farms near Paris, Ky. The newborn filly is the first foal out of graded stakes winner Richwoman (by Successful Appeal ). Richwoman was purchased privately after she was bought back for $725,000 at the 2008 Keeneland November breeding stock sale.
