From the powerhouse connections of trainer D. Wayne Lukas and owner-breeder William T. Young’s Overbrook Farm, Cat Thief had hinted at brilliance throughout his career before stealing the spotlight as the longshot winner of the 1999 Breeders’ Cup Classic at Gulfstream Park. As a two-year-old, he was third in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and prior to the Classic he spent his three-year-old season battling the best of his generation. After finishing among the top three in a string of Kentucky Derby prep races, Cat Thief finished a close third in the Derby itself. After his upset Classic score, Cat Thief raced again the following season before closing his 30-race career with 21 top-three finishes and earnings of nearly $4 million. Upon retirement, he returned to his Overbrook birthplace in Lexington, Kentucky for stallion duty.
