Category : GET STORMY , News , Stallions

Get Stormy, a leading sire at Crestwood Farm died unexpectedly on March 6, at the age of 16 from what is believed to be a cardiac event.  Get Stormy, a son of Stormy Atlantic, bred and owned by Mary A.

Racing until the age of 6, Get Stormy was a three-time Grade 1 Winner, winning the Marker’s Mark Mile (G1), Woodford Reserve Turf Classic S. (G1), Gulfstream Park Turf H. (G1).  From 31 career starts, he compiled a record of 11-5-4 and earned $1,606,812.

Get Stormy was an amazing racehorse, and came to us with all the credentials and a tremendous following. He was such a great physical, and was a pleasure to be around. He was poised to become a top sire, as his best bred crops have yet to race. We are sorry and shocked; he is a great loss to our farm and Storm Cat’s legacy” said Pope McLean of Crestwood Farm

Get Stormy was popular his first year at stud when he arrived at Crestwood Farm, breeding 120 mares in his first season.  Get Stormy’s first crop included Graded Stakes Winner FIFTY FIVE, a 9 time stakes winner, earning $1,088,288 and was named NY Champion Three Year Old Filly in 2017 and NY Champion Turf Female in 2019.  Also from Get Stormy’s first crop, was Multiple Graded Stakes Winner, STORM THE HILL.

Get Stormy’s most prolific runner, the Multiple Grade 1 Winning filly, GOT STORMY with earnings of $2,468,403.  She won the Fourstardave (G1) in 2019 and again in 2021.  In GOT STORMY’s initial win of the Fourstardave (G1), she set a new course record completing 1 Mile in 1:32, while defeating males at Saratoga Race Course.  In December of 2019, GOT STORMY won her second Grade 1 stake in the Matriarch S. (G1) at Del Mar. 

As of March 5, 2022, Get Stormy is the sire of 229 starters, 123 winners, 6 Graded Stakes Winners GOT STORMY (G1), FIFTY FIVE (G3), GET SMOKIN (G2), STORM THE HILL (G3), GO NONI GO (G3), GETMOTHERAROSE (G3) and a total of 11 black-type winners and total progeny earnings of $12,188,748.

GET STORMY – Thoroughbred Daily News, Proven Value Sire, February 21, 2020

Category : GET STORMY , News , Stallions

GET STORMY (Stormy Atlantic–Foolish Girl by Kiri’s Clown), $7,500 Crestwood

From Chris McGrath, TDN Kentucky Sires Series, February 21, 2020

Last year he was favoured by the most helpfully named of advertisements in dual Grade I scorer Got Stormy, a $23,000 yearling ($45,000 2-year-old) who broke the Saratoga track record as the first female winner of the GI Fourstardave H. in 1:32 flat, besides also finishing second in the GI Breeders’ Cup Mile. But Get Stormy is no one-trick pony, with four other graded-stakes performers in 2019 headed by dual Grade I-placed Clyde’s Image, himself a $24,000 yearling.

Though he is viewed absolutely as a turf sire, I have a bit of a crackpot theory about Get Stormy. Physically he has all the bone and power you seek in a dirt horse and it might be wrong to typecast him at what remains an early stage of his career. Last year 71 of his 106 starters raced on turf; but this group accounted only for 26 of his 48 winners (leaving 22 winners from the remaining 35). Similar story in 2018: 75 of 114 starters raced on turf, but included basically only half his total winners at 27 out of 53 (leaving 26 winners from the other 39). Even allowing for the fact that some of these others scored on synthetics, I just have a feeling that he’s not being given adequate opportunity on dirt.

Get Stormy himself certainly carried his speed relentlessly, the premier hallmark of dirt racing, having made the running for all three of his Grade I wins. Obviously the Storm Cat line is associated with versatility and while there’s plenty of grass in his pedigree, it’s a healthy mix overall: his damsire is by Foolish Pleasure, for instance, and his sire’s dam is by Seattle Slew. In terms of sheer quality, moreover, he also carries Claiborne champion and matriarch Moccasin 4×5. Anyhow that constitution of his (won graded stakes four years running) would be worth replicating for any discipline of racing.

So let’s forget prescribing any rules for Get Stormy and just recognize how he’s upgrading the limited material he can expect at this level of the market. Got Stormy herself, for instance, is out of a $4,500 Malabar Gold mare who raced in Puerto Rico.

Just imagine what Get Stormy might achieve with the mares lavished, at more industrial farms, on newcomers who will never make the grade. As it is, he is in excellent hands; and last year already expanded his book from 47 to 86. And that was before his first big star had remotely hit her full stride.

The barometer says Stormy, but that means a sunny outlook for breeders.
