Will Get Stormy Defend Woodford Reserve Title?

Get Stormy with Javier Castekkano wins The Fourstardave Saratoga Springs NY 8.1.2010
Sullimar Stable’s Get Stormy will seek to become the second horse to defend his title when he goes postward in the 26th running of the $500,000-added Woodford Reserve Turf Classic (Grade I) for 4-year-olds and up going 1 1/8 miles on the Matt Winn Turf Course. Only Einstein in 2008-09 repeated in the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic.

The Woodford Reserve Turf Classic, which drew a field of 11, will go as Saturday’s 10th race with a 4:44 p.m. post time.

Trained by Tom Bush, Get Stormy has a 6-3-1-2 record at the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic distance of nine furlongs. Fourth in his most recent start in the Maker’s 46 Mile (GI) at Keeneland, Get Stormy will be ridden by Ramon Dominguez and break from post position four.

The three horses that combined to finish a length in front of Get Stormy last month at Keeneland also return in the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic: Data Link, Turallure and Doubles Partner.
 
Owned by Stuart Janney III, Data Link earned his first stakes victory in the Maker’s 46 Mile. Trained by Shug McGaughey, Data Link will be ridden by Alex Solis and break from post position seven.

 Four D Stable’s Turallure, trained by Charles Lopresti, fell a nose short of catching Court Vision here last fall in the TVG Breeders’ Cup Mile (GI). Julien Leparoux has the mount on Turallure, who will break from post position two.

WinStar Farm’s Double Partner, winner of the Canadian Turf (GIII) in his 2012 debut, finished third in the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic last year, beaten only a length. Javier Castellano has the mount Saturday on Doubles Partner, who will break from post position six.

The field for the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic, from the hedge out, is as follows: Little Mike (Joe Bravo, 120 pounds), Turallure (Leparoux, 120), Boxeur des Rues (Mario Gutierrez, 118), Get Stormy (Dominguez, 124), Slim Shadey (GB) (David Flores, 122), Doubles Partner (Castellano, 120), Data Link (Solis, 124), Turbo Compressor (Rafael Bejarano, 118), Al Khali (Corey Nakatani, 118), Brilliant Speed (John Velazquez, 120) and Papaw Bodie (Joel Rosario, 120).
