Keeneland Yearlings Day-2: US$2.05m Storm Cat Colt
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum's agent John Ferguson out-bid Coolmore Stud's John Magnier to pay the Day-2 top price of US$2.05 million for a colt from the last full crop of Storm Cat (the 1st foal out of champion Indian Charlie mare Fleet Indian) in Kentucky early this morning (Australian time) during the 2nd session at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. The colt (already named Storm 'N Indian) was consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency for breeders Frank & Jane Lyon's Summer Wind Farm. Ferguson commented: "Fleet Indian was a champion & a star of a mare. He (the colt) is very athletic with a great pedigree." And Taylor Made president Duncan Taylor added: "He's a big, strong, sound colt; very correct & very athletic. Frank & Jane Lyon are good horse people who raise quality stock." The colt's dam Fleet Indian notched 13 wins from 19 starts (including both the Gr1 Beldame Stakes & Gr1 Personal Ensign Stakes) for US$1,704,513 earnings.
