Air Force Blue: Another juvenile champion for Ashford

  1. Storm Cat wasn’t as dominant a 2yo as Storm Bird, but he was good enough that if the head bob at the end of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile had gone his way, instead of to the ‘Evil Tasso,’ Storm Cat would have been the Eclipse champion 2yo colt that season. So he’s another horse who’s in the same category as the others that Coolmore has been collecting for its program.

    Also, trainer Jonathan Sheppard told me years ago that Storm Cat’s feet, not issues with other types of soundness, were the problem with the colt’s 3yo season and kept him from being effective after the first season of racing.
