The late stallion Storm Cat sired a new graded stakes winner over the weekend, and this one was very unique.

On Sunday, the 4-year-old Stray Cat captured the G3 Red Cell Remington Park Distance Challenge Stakes, a race run at a distance of 870 yards. Yes, that's right, Stray Cat is a Quarter Horse.

According to an article in the Daily Racing Form, Stray Cat was the legendary sire's only Quarter Horse foal. The colt was bred by artificial insemination not long after Storm Cat was pensioned from stallion duty in 2008.

The 4-year-old colt races as a homebred for Vessels Stallion Farm and country music artist Lyle Lovett, and is out of the multiple Grade 1-winning First Down Dash mare Your First Moon.

Sunday's win was Stray Cat's second in 15 starts, bringing his career earnings up to $45,398.
