What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Storm Cat...

Currently, he’s mane and tail above anything California has to offer and his performances have made the East Coast horses look boring. Is Shared Belief a true contender or just hyped?Read More

  • hannahWTC · I have never been super impressed with him. I am doubting his ability to run on dirt. And the 2 horses I had my money on in the CashCall had rough trips (Kobes back and Tap it Rich). He most likely will not last going a mile and a quarter. My choice for next years derby is Strong Mandate and Kobes back · 117 days ago ·

  • https://www.facebook.com/jake.bennett.756 · I love it! The fact that you mentioned he could have the X-Factor gene! Anyone who loves this sport will be cheering for the horse because he is a superstar! No one finished races like he did last year, I know that he could be an excellent sprinter, but he proved alot going the distance he did in the Cashcall. He had plenty left in the tank and I honestly think he will be just fine on dirt. · 83 days ago ·

Remembering the beloved equine athletes we lost in 2013.Read More
today is one of the happiest days of my life. i'm getting a retired grandson of Storm Cat, his name is Last Chance. hes been gelded, & his owner doesn't want him. she leaves him in the rain & isn't very nice to him. so we're rescuing him. in his pedigree i have found 5 of the 11 Triple Crown Winners including Secretariat, Omaha, Gallant Fox, Count Fleet, & War Admiral. hes also related to Proud Truth, Northern Dancer, Graustark, Elocutionist, Ribot, Bold Ruler, T.V. Lark, Rock Sand, Native Dancer, Discovery, Teddy, Sir Gallahad, Nasrullah, Princequillo, Isinglass, Man O' War, Ben Brush, Bend Or, Gallant Man, Reigh Count, Colin, Star Shooter, Flying Fox, & Tudor Minstrel. i'm so excited. :)
Shared Belief burst onto the Kentucky Derby 2014 scene on Sunday, leaving highly regarded returnee Kobe’s Back in the dust in the Grade III Hollywood Prevue Stakes.Read More
  • equineplay · Two races, looks like the real deal. Hope he doesn't peak too early. It would be a good west coast rep. · 153 days ago ·

  • tmallios1 · He is supposed to look good on the poly,let him show the ability to handle the dirt.Then maybe he can generate some excitement. Just like all the Candy Rides,except a little bit of Sidneys Candy who fizzled on the dirt ,Misremembered who was a nice horse and Chocolate Candy who is good.This sire has not done anything on the dirt. I for one will wait this guy out. Like i said, he is supposed to run over the carpet or turf. · 153 days ago ·

We think they will live forever, the true legends of thoroughbred racing. We take for granted that we will wake up the next morning and horses like Storm Cat will be there enjoying the luxury of their retirement, just as they were the day before. Yet, today, wasn't like yesterday. Today, one of the ...Read More

  • ILuvTurfRacing · Euthanized for suffering complications relating to the infirmities of old age. During his prime as a stallion, Storm Cat commanded a stud fee of $500,000. Imagine what that would equate to in today's market. Great sire that was hugely influential for both conventional dirt and turf. · 358 days ago ·

  • UnionRagsRules · BSF are earned in each race. I do not recall any of his, but I would say we should have had a 90 or so. I at first called them SI also-if you can't tell I'm a barrel racer too ;) · 476 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · Final Time evaluation tells you NOTHING of the pace challenges or lack of them. If there is NO pace challenge, a horse has more energy late often coming in at a much faster time than if he had be stressed early on.....beyers are really flawed without a look at the early fractions they evolved within, · 476 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · Being a retired physician, I carefully took vacations to coordinate with where I wanted to go in the horse racing world. Often a seminar near where I wanted to go, allowed me to write off the entire trip. Before my late wife got sick, we used to go all over the place together as tow DINKS. · 619 days ago ·

There is much fertile land in the Ireland region known as the “Golden Vale” that Sadler’s Wells called home since 1984. This fertility certainly was indicative of the illustrious stud career that would follow for Coolmore’s most prized stallion.Read More

I read a while back that you could walk into Windfield's Stallion barn, and read the list of dignitaries who have purchased Northern Dancer offspring was astonishing at that time.
