Old Habits



**SOLD** NSW & QLD Metro Performer by Tale Of The Cat!

OLD HABITS is the 4 time winning son of TALE OF THE CAT sire of 105 Stakes Winners from the REDOUTE'S CHOICE mare WIDGEE.

He has spent most of his career racing at Metro level in NSW & QLD and possesses a powerful finish over his preferred distances of 1200m to 1600m and has raced consistently throughout his career chasing prizemoney in the 40K plus range.

In his current prep he has been trained to get over 2000m however as these runs have shown he is more suited as a sprinter miler type. The Tale Of The Cat x Redoute's cross produced 450K earner & 1400m specialist GRACIOUS PROSPECT.

Old Habits definitely has good earning potential especially with a drop in grade and will suit racing in most regions.
