Biography


Apache Cat, an extraordinary sprinter and people’s champion, is the newest arrival to Living Legends.

In 2008, Apache Cat was ridden by jockey Corey Brown to five consecutive Group One victories, a streak which matched the record set by champion Tulloch in 1957. Corey Brown rated the star sprinter the best he has ridden in his career.

Apache Cat also won the 2006 Cadbury Guineas, and in 2009 etched his name into turf history after scoring back-to-back Doomben 10,000 wins at Doomben Racecourse.

Apart from his eight Group One victories, Apache Cat won four Group Two races, four Group Threes and two Listed races.

On 16 December 2009 trainer Greg Eurell retired Apache Cat after the horse sustained a leg fracture during the running of the 2009 Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Sprint at Sha Tin racecourse, Hong Kong, China.
